The title of this piece refers to my childhood. I used to walk through narrow woods across a stream to a rolling field that sometimes was planted with corn, sometimes alfalfa, depending on the season. I went there to feel free, to contemplate life, to imagine what made me tick.
I like to go back to that feeling whenever I am heartbroken by life or when I need to feel hopefulness again. I started with a heavy-weight un-primed canvas and acrylic paint. After I had enough layers of paint, I did some printmaking with blocks I've carved. With a brush I paint my imagery and add touches of metallic. I also stitched on some jute rope and added silver toned medallions. It hangs as a tapestry from a top molding.
It will be rolled up to ship. Please feel free to ask any questions.
