Cougar Peak #185

4.75" x 6.75" Acrylic on Chipboard

On this image I tried again to capture a bit of that early morning light. I was also able to incorporate some of the round hay bails that were bailed yesterday... adding a nice little addition to the composition, helping to give a bit more scale, lay down the field a bit more, and push the mountain back a bit.

The hay bales are almost shocking, on what is usually a smooth field.

Are they really gone, now? Around these parts (southeast Michigan), the big round ones tend to stay in the fields (but the smaller rectangular ones are picked up and put in the barn).

The bales I thought were a nice change as well.

We tend to get our rounds off of the field as quick as possible and into barns just in case of is a little wetter here in the mountains, so any moisture on them really and they will start to mildew pretty quickly.

But there should be more, as we only got part of the field put up.

I wonder if it's that we get so much more rain, so the animals can use the pastures more, and the hay isn't needed......

It's not uncommon to see those big round bales basically rotting, sitting out for months. Years. ??
