This landscape was inspired by the quiet streams that one can find out in the country. I painted this simple farmstead into an overcast landscape scene, with a sky feeling heavy with rain from my imagination. I get a sense of peace from this landscape scene that I hope you may find also.

The painting is done on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
