This painting is one of my impressions of the quiet of the rural American Heartland. A glimpse of a hazy day, an old white shed with a rooster weather vane on top, and round bales of straw alongside a cornfield. I most often work from memories of country scenes that I love. This acrylic painting is done on gallery wrapped canvas with the sides painted dark green to match. It 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.
