Hayrolls at Sunset

"Hayrolls at Sunset"
8 1/2X12 3/4
Oil on Board

I did a small watercolor of this scene some time ago, but had saved the photo for just this purpose. As evening falls and sun streaks across the fields, there was this reddish-golden light smack on the rolled edge of the hayroll. The background tells you of the light falling into the darkened woods behind. It seems a metaphor for a good day coming to an end, as if the sun is smiling on a golden treasure which came from hard work. Sometimes the reward is more than just the thing in front of is the light shining on it!

That's what I see....and what I liked about it.
Thanks for visiting!
