This landscape was inspired by the oxen, which I found on an old historical farm. The scene is from my imagination, and thoughts of a peaceful, quiet, and overcast day in the country. I paint in a series of many layers to create a minimal aesthetic. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.
