In honor of Kyle's Dad

I've never done a mid-west painting before..(despite the fact I grew up there and I do have an appreciation for the beauty of the "heartland"). I wanted to do this painting in honor of a young artist's father who died, doing his job as a farmer. I learned about it here.

Hi Celeste,
Beautiful, peaceful painting. I "met" Kyle online too and his story broke my heart. I hope his painting inspiration will continue after he takes some time to deal with his loss. Your hay bales remind me that I once joked with Kyle about our mutual admiration of "field sculptures." He would really like your interpretation.

Celeste, another wonderful painting. You do have a way with color that I really like in your paintings. Also a very good composition.
