Harvest Time I

"Harvest Time I" 6x6 oil on 3/4" cradled panel, ©Laura Gable
Painted in honor of all my friends with wheat to harvest in this hot dry climate. Hoping you have the best of weather and abundant crops.

This was inspired by a drive I took up the Badger Canyon primitive dirt road out near Kiona, WA when the wheat was tall and golden. The road lay neatly behind me like a ribbon, getting smaller as it ambled away. Our familiar distant hills of lavender against subtle green flat farmlands added a pleasing note of color and softness. This pastoral scene spanned out beneath cottony clouds in an azure sky.
