Rain & Wheat


Raining all day...the crops are happy but my wheat isn't..too much wet and it causes it to lay down. See how the hay in the foreground is laying over...the wheat up on the hill is doing the same thing.
If it doesn't stand back up..it can rot.




Here is an attempt to get back to painting. A journal page about droopy wheat.
I also did some letter practicing..not a lot the pen was picking at this paper..I didn't gesso and it makes a difference!

Having a good stand doesn't guarantee a decent crop. We were predicted a 60-80 bushel harvest which would have been nice.
Hopefully the sun will come out and it will stand back up and do it drying...another week and it should be ready to harvest. If it doesn't I suppose it will make some mighty nice hay for the cows.
At least something will eat!

I really love your journal pages. I can feel your story through them. I hope your wheat sees sun and that your crop is still good!
