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 red brick farmhouses I have seen over the years on rural back roads. I set this house along a quiet country lane with a heavy overcast sky around it. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.

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.
