My daughter sent me:
I could title it: Shocking Bikers.
You know- bikers lying against reed stacks that are being shocked? O.k., too much explanation required = bad pun.
In these photos my daughter was cycling/relaxing her way to Hungary is sunshine so beautiful I'd like to eat a bowlful.
What drives me crazy is that the shots remind me of a painting. But I can't remember which one. I can't even pinpoint the period of the painting I'm remembering. Maybe a Dutch painting?
In my search I came across an entire website devoted to hay.
Not surprisingly it's called Hay In Art. They have over 6,000 links to paintings.
I didn't find the painting I was looking for but I did find this:
I saw this Bastien-LePage painting at The Frist Center last winter. Seeing it online was like greeting an old friend. An old, very tired friend.
But back to the topmost photo- save my sanity- what painting does the shot resemble?
