Harvest Bounty

Harvest time in the rural farming area is a very busy time to say the least. The Amish community in the surrounding northern areas face even busier days in the field given they use more traditional methods to bring in the bounty of their efforts.
This panoramic scene has two horse drawn wagons harvesting the crops as they load up what appeared to be feed corn.
Long hours out in the hot sun gives me a true respect and admiration for these hardworking folk.
(15 by 30 inches on canvas-cropped a little for this photo.)

Re: Harvest Bounty

First class painting. Iím not sure if Paintings comes under the same 'taboo' as photos, but Iíd certainly hang it on my wall.

Re: Harvest Bounty

Nicely painted real scene. natural poses and feel to the people and animals, good paint handling throughout, good use of color and light to bring out the subjects, and lovely background landscape.
