9×12 in. mixed media. Title speaks for the work, right? Layered process like my earlier works, 6-8 deep, lots of texture. This is a similar process that was used to make 5 Finger Blues. Title took awhile to hit me, but once I started to think along those lines the name stuck. Inspiration? Ever been up 10,000 ft. while flying over Kansas farm land in late spring? Different crops some fairing better than others…hmmm seems like we have some crop circles.
By the way Cookeville Artprowl 2012 went well…will show a few pictures from it soon.
I love the depth and layers. I look a furrows in fields all the time, this is like furrows meets crop circles. Thanks for stopping by the blog I appreciate the visit and the chance to see your work 🙂
I love this! And thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂

This work is so evokative it drives me to want to eat it! I’ll just have to be satisfied with posting it!
This work is so evokative I can only describe its effect as being that I want to eat it! Instead i’ll take the liberty of posting it!
I find watercolor paper 140lb. hot rolled to be a little dry, even with a nice thick coating of acrylic…might i interest you in What Waterbugs, it has a nice tissue flavor of lake water with soaked leaves…appreciate the like and i am pleased you would want to share on your site, site…thanks
I will look at What Waterbugs with interest. I have done the post and will also post your comment beneath. I have always had a great passion for the Impressionaists, Expressionists, Fauvists and Scottish Colourists Peploe and Caddel. Great site!
http://johndwmacdonald.com Hi Ken. I cannot find What Waterbugs on the right hand column. Perhaps you could guide me there. From your time-zone/pic I guess you must be somewhere on the East Coast USA or Canada?

This is a beautiful piece of art. I love the play of colors.
I’m a science teacher and my dad’s a farmer – so I really loved the title! Beautiful artwork.
I love the color. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Glad you liked it.
I totally see the connection with the fields!
I really like this. It’s a beautiful work.
