Fresh Cut Hay

Parker, Colorado

One day I was working in the studio as usual when my wife called and said, “Get on over here, you gotta see these hay bales.” So I put down my paint brush and drove the 5 minutes to where she was talking about. The rancher saw me painting and came over to tell me that the hay was baled with an old John Deere tractor, and pointed to a black scorched patch of ground where it had literally burned up the day before.
