Wheatfield with Sheaves and Rising Moon

"Anyway, in the meantime I can do nothing but fiddle with my paintings a little. I have one on the go of a moonrise over the same field as the croquis in the Gauguin letter, but in which stacks replace the wheat. It’s dull ochre-yellow and violet." To Theo. Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Sunday, 14 or Monday, 15 July 1889
