For as long as herbivorous animals have been domesticated, their caretakers have cultivated grain and grass to keep them fed when they're unable to access pasture. This fodder is collectively known as hay and the folks who make it used to be called haymakers. Hay is very sensitive to weather conditions, especially when it's harvested, which used to quite a back-breaking process. Hay must be cut, dried, raked, baled, and stored. This was traditionally all done manually using a variety of wonderful tools such as a scythe, hay rake, and pitchfork. By the 1930s, most hay production was mechanized and these manual tools were replaced by wondrous machines.

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 include a detail, the machine bundled, hay bale in the background, to show how this job has drastically changed over time.
