Strawshine 9x12 pastel on board
This strawstack was in our neighbor's field across the road. Very unusual to have strawstacks here as most of the time the straw is chopped and left in the field as the grain is harvested. After several evenings of watching the sun hit the end of the stack , I was captured by the light and just had to take some photos so I could paint it . My painting is a bit more mellow than my photo but the light on the stack is still my focus.

  1. Love how the colors are repeated, Jean, in the sky, the field and the tress. Very beautiful!

  2. Love the sky, and the sun shining on the straw stack is beautiful!
