Hay time

Posted on May 27, 2011 at 10:00 AM
This is the time we used to start cutting hay in Tn.  We sold our cows and quit doing hay about 3 years ago.  I usually get an itch about this time of the year to get on the tractor and in the fields.  My neighbor who has horses now cut the hay and takes care of the fields.  On an average we would do about 3000 square bales a year.  It pretty well took up most of our summer.  It was hard work but kind of enjoyable to a certain degree.  I have a photograph
of the last bale I picked up knowing this was coming to an end....I think I might convert it into a painting some day....maybe call it  "The Last Bale".   Maybe paint it outside when it's about 98 degrees to get the feel again!

My brother suggested I might like this web site. He was entirely right. This post actually made my day. You can not imagine simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

I'm glad you liked the site. Its just simply people and places I've painted over the elaborate stories...just simply my life as an artist and the things I've seen that's inspired me over the years...and of course my everyday live on the farm. I think the H.R. Lovell documentary on the site that NPT did pretty well sums up my life on the farm and my art. check it out if you haven't already. feel free to email me anytime!

I am not a fan of hay being that it triggers runny nose and watery eyes from me, but I can't wait for your to paint your piece "The Last Bale." I love landscape paintings. Rural scenes, landscapes and a slice of the environment type of paintings stir emotions in me. I can't enjoyed being outside, especially during hay season. But there is no harm in looking at photographs and paintings. Between the Mona Lisa and a Bob Ross painting tutorial, I'd take the latter anytime. Don't get me wrong. I'd still look and appreciate the Mona Lisa - it is a masterpiece after all. But I'd rather look more closely at the beauty, texture and magic found in mountains, rivers, sunsets and other landscape art.

I didn't know that so many days are celebrated. Every nation and country have their own ways and days to celebrate the event. It's good to know about this information.
