I have painted and draw this field many times and in many different ways. I pass it early in my weekend bike rides and it always suggests new ways to approach it. This moment seemed like a perfect chance to use and very elongated composition. The thin slivers of shadows stretched across the field, and were punctuated by the hay bales here and there. The rain from the night before was receding and the field was soggy but being brightened by the morning sun.
