" What Happens in the Fields...."

This weeks challenge was to explore the realm of color.  The image provided was a pastoral landscape of rolling farm land.  The object was to use a variety of color.  Not unlike the lesson learned in the Harry Chapin's song  " Flowers Are Red".
Instead of just using the standard green fields and blue skies, the challenge was to integrate a vast range of color.
I love working in technicolor, whenever possible, and of course interjecting my own brand of irreverent humor.    I decided to go for the obvious laugh.  Since we are dealing with crops and farm land, why not have a lost alien couple.  They have landed in the wheat and are now engaged in ritualistic activity of arguing over where they are.
Of course in any species, the man refuses to pull over and ask for directions.
