Painting Description

I found this painting difficult as I wanted to show Naomi from the view of someone in the field. I had to re-arrange the “ballplayers” many times to get the attention on Naomi without making it too obvious. This scene also could include a Mennonite farmhouse which I find so attractive. Although my images had to illustrate the story, there was still a lot of room to showcase things about Mennonite country that I like but were not specified in the text.

This poem was the one that finally convinced me to become part of this project. The phrase, “they sang praise songs under a pink sky”, captures so beautifully the calm and peace of the ideal Mennonite life.
