I was inspired to paint this painting after passing a newly baled hay field on a back road along the way home earlier this year. There are not many old fence posts and fence lines left anymore around here, so I like to include them from my memories
Recently sold to a collector in TX.
I came across these horses in a quiet, secluded pasture several years ago. I painted them into a scene from my imagination earlier this year. One of my paintings from the quiet and peaceful American heartland.
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.
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.
