Hay in winter: 140 greetings and 64 gifts.
Of the nearly 6000 images in the hay in art database, almost 300 depict hay in winter. Early in the project, three years ago, I put some of these into a greeting card essay. The season and the growth of our collection prompt us to offer a winter update. So here are 64 more, all added in the past year or so. They are arranged primarily by medium – first paintings, then photographs – and then in clusters with common or complementary themes. You may find your names associated with pictures you like. If not, feel free to pick any of them. Enjoy, dear hay-mates, both these pictures and every day in 2007.
