Hay there, it's autumn--be prepared

"Hay there. Autumn morning," 8 x 10 watercolor, 300 lb d'Arches cold press
I'm still fascinated by the patterns and light on round hay bales across our rural landscapes, as farmers and ranchers get ready for winter. 
The principle echoes Paul's direction to the Corinthian Church comes to mind, urging people to "lay by in store." Add the changing light of early autumn, which means more colors, and here is the third painting attempt. I think there will be more.
