Painting of the Week – Plenty for All

Directional Changes

Directional Changes

The Rollag, MN Steam Thresher‘s Reunion was a much publicized event this past weekend. They presented wondrous antiques of early threshing machines that still run. You get an idea of how much work it was for a farmer to harvest grain and why these machines were created. The scene in Plenty for All is from a field nearby. Despite delayed planting this spring, the Red River Valley appears to be producing bumper crops. It makes me curious. How many loafs of bread can be made from a bushel of wheat? How many bushels would these fields yield?

The fields of wheat make up biggest proportion of space in this painting. Rows of wheat have turned gold – ready for harvest. Notice the directional change and color of the fields throughout this piece. Some changes are subtle and others are dramatic.

Sincerely,
