HARVESTING THE OATS sold

"Harvesting the Oats" by Stephanie Berry
This painting took a lot of work and I'm still not fully satisfied with it.  In person the field does not look so greeny-gold but I can't seem to adjust it.  I'll try getting a different photo of it later.  This was many years ago but not so far back.  I can't imagine the amount of work harvesting oats in this fashion must have been and with a team of horses no less!  It was a family project with all the family guys pitching in.
