Winter Fields Snow Landscape Painting Contemporary Impressionism Rural Farm

"Snowy Fields of Slumber"

 6"x6" oil on panel.

I drive by these feilds at least weekly. I was so surprised as each week passed that this cornfield had not been harvested yet. Most fields were. I guess weather and many things were a factor. I imagined the stress this farmer must have been feeling. I couldn't believe it when I saw that this field was still standing in November. The corn dried and alone waiting. Finally I saw the combines bringing in the corn one day. Now, in January it rests under a blanket of snow till spring. I really like the palette of this day: grays, a hint of blue, violet and yellow ochre. Somber and quiet yet very alive.
