Limited edition giclée print of The Harvester from The Jobs of Yesteryear Series. Printed on acid-free paper with archival inks and finished with a standard size white mat plus the option to add a high-quality black frame with anti-reflective glass. The Jobs of Yesteryear are thought-provoking conversation pieces that will bring an air of history and whimsy to any room.

Before the advent of sophisticated farm machinery such as the combine and thresher, harvesting was the most labor-intensive activity of the growing season. The grain had to be reaped, shocked (bundled), dried in the sun and threshed (separating the grain from stalks and husks) manually by beating the grain or making livestock walk on it. Hand threshing was particularly laborious, with one-quarter of agricultural labor devoted to it before the invention of the threshing machine in 1786.

Each original painting is created on stained wood panel using acrylic paint. The limited color palette gives the work a historic feel. The long limbed characters are crafted using hundreds of hand-torn bits of kraft paper collaged on top of watercolor paper and painted with an acrylic wash. The painting includes details showing how the harvester job became obsolete.
