Harvest Time II

"Harvest Time II" 6"x6" oil on 3/4" cradled panel, ©Laura Gable
Another homage to the American farmer. We honor and respect the hard work and diligence they put forth to grow and harvest these crops to provide for the world. Golden and dry, these wheat fields were ready for harvesting. A whisper of blue in the distance adds an enticing coolness to these hot harvest days. The clouds pass through.

Even though I now live in eastern Washington, I grew up around the wheat fields of Nebraska - a common sight in the farm belt. These beautiful golden fields translate to any region, the backdrops are the only variable. Their soft waves of amber reach out for miles. The rustle of the dry grain as the heads move together in unison, creates a welcome symphonic earthy song.
