Having traveled with Naomi, her mother-in-law, back to her hometown of Bethlehem, Ruth goes out to the fields to glean the grain left behind after the harvest. The seated figure gesturing towards Ruth could be Naomi or Boaz, the man who owns the land underfoot. Throwing a bundle of golden wheat over her shoulder, Ruth bends her head and listens to her companion. Organic swathes of crimson and umber unite the two figures and bright spots of white hint at the sun high overhead.
