Fields of gold

This painting has been sold



Oil on hardboard 8" x 8"

Don't know what crop was growing in those fields but they kind of shone out despite the greyish sky.

This is my first visit to your blog (I'm not following you, Jala, I swear!) and I have to say I LOVE your work! This piece will not last long, I predict. The tonality is so gorgeous.

Great painting! I love those bright yellow fields next to the warm gray hills and the scumbled reds in the foreground field. Really soothing yet strong at the same time.

Those bright fields are indeed fascinating and make this painting exciting.

In our area there are yellow-green fields of canola growing that are wonderfully exciting too. The color always makes me smile.

Thank you Rahina and Diana. I think the crop may be rape. They make rapeseed oil with it.

I'm catching up from summer...I've missed following your blog....I honestly think you live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet! I love these vast rolling expanses of land and how you portray them! There is an abstract sense to them (and yet a very direct sense of place, too!)!

Thanks Roxanne. It may seem vast but it is small compared to the US ! Also we have a lot of wound down industry here also - but that has its own kind of beauty.
