Playing Amongst The Rice Sheaves
by Kenn Backhaus

Painted a couple of years ago for a Tri-Cenntenial event, celebrating the nostalgia and important history of the deep South. Rice was a very important crop of the South and harvested mostly by the local people. It was gathered and cut in small bundles referred to as sheaves which were then dried for eventually milling. In those early days it was common that harvesters brought their children with them to the job site. This painting depicts a young child playing amongst some of those rice sheaves with her little Raggedy Anne doll close by!
