I wanted the feel of a slightly overcast sky on a moonlight night for this simple, old white farmhouse. I live and paint on an old farmstead in the Midwestern Heartland. My contemporary rural landscapes are painted simply from the heart. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the sides are painted dark green to match. 

This piece is currently on display at a designer showcase and will be available to ship in January, 2016. Contact us at sales@ugallery.com for more information.

Getting to Know Sharon

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. Fun fact: her homestead includes a number of pet birds like heritage turkeys, chickens, ducks and tiny finches.
