Quiet Country Landscape Painting

To my Little Country House

 

This original painting by myself Sharon France and is a bit of an imaginary self portrait.  I have loved the country since I was a kid, visiting my grandparents remote Midwestern farm.  This little girl came from my imagination about a decade ago and finds her way into my paintings every so often.  In this scene she is headed towards a little white cottage in a quiet meadow scene. 

Along an Old Fence Row

My inspiration for this painting came from the draft horses that I found in a rural pasture a couple of years ago.  I painted them into aquiet country scene from my imagination.  I miss seeing the old fenced fields and pastures that were common when I was growing up and often add them to my country paintings. 

This piece measures  18" x 14" x .75 and is done in acrylic on stretched canvas.  The sides of this gallery wrap canvas are painted to match and it is wired to hang, so that no framing is necessary.
