October is such a wonderful month of contrasts. The trees lose their foliage, the landscape turns to browns and golds yet in the midst of the subdued colors, a blaze of color comes through, the Cranberry Bogs.
It is harvest time for the cranberries scattered all up and down the 26 mile long Long Beach Peninsula. These bright red little berries have a peculiar characteristic: they have a light, spongy center. The harvesters fill the bogs with water, the cranberries float to the top and are raked into a boom, which conveys them to the waiting trucks. It is early, long hours and hard work, but oh how we enjoy them for Thanksgiving!
This painting “Cranberry Harvest – Pulling in the Boom“ captures the vivid colors and a harvester manning the boom. I so enjoyed being out during harvest in the cool, crisp air, capturing this time in the life of our peninsula. – Eric
