Field, Winter

Plastic marshmallow bales hold the energy of the summer field while it sleeps through the long, silent months of winter.

This is so striking, gorgeous, intriguing. Love your use of strong value contast with the temperature changes in the painting. Simply beautiful.

Sandy said it. I can feel the frigid cold.
Also, I admire that you took these "marshmallows" on. I never think of painting the plastic ones!!
I always wonder: wouldn't the hay get mouldy in those plastic wraps?
I guess not or they wouldn't do it.

Mary, the hay ferments in the plastic and becomes sileage, which is nutritious feed for cows.
