I live on an old farmstead in the Midwest where I paint quiet, country scenes from my imagination. These contemporary folk art landscapes are created simply from the heart. I want to capture the feeling of peace and serenity that I love about the country. This painting was inspired from old country houses I have seen over the years on rural back roads. I set the house in a simple, slightly abstracted golden field with a blue sky filled with wispy clouds. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.
Sharon France has many fond childhood memories of visits to her grandparents’ remote Midwestern farm. She now lives on her own farmstead with her family where she paints the beauty around her. Sharon found inspiration in the work of Hudson River School Artists, Minimalists, Tonalists and Realists. When she’s not painting, she loves to hike. She currently lives in Illinois.

Just what we expected and will purchase another from Ms. France. Looks fantastic in our Saratoga home, hanging above a small walnut desk and chair.- M Walsh
I gasped with joy when I laid my eyes on your lovingly created "Followed Her to School..." This is my very first purchase of an original painting and I will treasure it always. Sincerely, another animal lover- M Clements
