Bales of Bounty
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. This painting was taken from a photo I shot in Montana last summer. I have a total love for hay bales! Seeing them scattered neatly about an empty field, makes me reflect on how they mirror our own lives. We are sown from tiny seeds placed on the earth, provided all that we need to grow to fullness and completion. Then, once reaped, fall gently back to the ground to be gathered up into a bountiful harvest. Each bale representing the abundance of a life well lived. I think this painting is appropriate for the season of thanksgiving and a reminder of the blessings and gift of all life.
