From the artist

Within a short distance from where I live there are many plotted and worked pieces of farmland. Each has its own almost individual personality that reflects the type of crop that is grown there and the people who work it. This particular work is from the Northern Midlands. From year to year the canola crops change location, their vivid golden yellow glow that radiates well into dusk, moves and alters composition each season.
