Very cool

I find this painting quite intriguing. Your soft brushwork is excellent.

Wonderful painting


Thank you for your informed comment on my "Balancing Act"! This gave me an excuse to come back to your site and comment on another of your paintings that I love. I used to pick cotton when I was a child, until I was 13, actually, so I deeply appreciate this lovely scene although its rice here. As hard as the work is, and as much as I wanted out of that field, there were also beautiful moments in nature.

Artist's Description

Before these women began their meticulous back breaking mission of planting rice seedlings in the paddy, the mud dikes with interlocking channels of water were released to flood the fields. The swamped ground was plowed into a smooth sloppy mixture with the help of oxen powered ploughs. Planting rice in paddies is a labor intensive job. The 7 inch seedlings will take 3 to 4 months before harvesting providing the rice survives the usual adversities. The hectares of rice cultivated by villagers in developing countries are sometimes grown as cash crops to be marketed in nearby regions. Asia produces more than 75% of the world's rice while African nations produce less than 4% collectively. Of the 540 million tons of rice produced annually, only 5% is traded internationally. No other food crop is depended on by more people, and yet there is still a serious shortage of rice to feed some parts of the world.
