Statement: My intent in "Clover and Corn" was to convey a sense of contrast between the enclosed space of the ground versus the open, brilliant sky. The dirt path, brilliantly lit, becomes a corridor between the tall corn on the right and the trees and undergrowth on the left, with no view beyond. This sense of restriction pushes the eye upward, into the airiness of the sky and hanging clouds. The turn of the path in the distance provokes the viewer to wonder if the constrictive corridor will continue, or if the landscape will open to longer views, giving the viewer a chance to impose his or her own story upon the scene.
