Yes, work has actually been going on in the studio though I have not posted progress shots recently. Here is the way things looked as of yesterday at 5:45 . . . I think I am coming down with hay fever!

Wow, that hay is a lot of work, but it's certaily worth it. It's a wonderful texture to contrast with the soft coat of the cattle.

Hi Laurene,

Yes, it is a lot of work, but when it comes right down to it, it really is just a bunch of squiggles and marks and dashes and splotches of black and grey that blend together and make a nice indication of hay straws; more impressionistic really than some of the other, tighter detail work in the cows and other major features of the composition.

And yes, the variation in texture is what it really is all about.
