“June Hay”, this is a small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.
It has been perfect hay cutting weather the last few days. Low humidity, a bit of a breeze and there has been lots of sun. I have been purposely driving past this field to get to the Post Office in the hopes that haying would begin. This is one of the few meadows where the hay is still baled and not rolled up. When rolled, it is then enclosed in white plastic. The bacteria goes to work in the moist environment turning the hay into almost silage and eating up all the oxygen in the process. Thus the nutrients are preserved. However, huge white bags of hay laying about in a field do not a painting make, at least not to me…
