Fruits of Labor - Art
In Fruits of Labor, clusters of orbs emulate the natural plenty of the harvest. The colorful clusters in this painting represent fruits and vegetables gathered in harvest. In shape, these images most resemble bunches of grapes, yet the diverse colors used to depict these fruits. Shades of green, blue, pink, and red represent the diversity of the harvest and the many varieties of fruits and vegetables that have been cultivation to sustain mankind for centuries.
The vibrancy of the colors in this painting evoke the joy of the harvest, the satisfaction gained by repeating what one sows. The work of planting and caring for the crops is rewarded by the bounty of the harvest. In this way, the fruits of labor are converted to happiness. Fruits of Labor is a joyful, uplifting examination of the joy wrought by good work.
