This landscape was inspired by the old red wooden barns that once were so common along the country backroads. As time marches on, there are fewer and fewer of them left standing. I love this iconic representation of the American landscape. I painted this one into an abstracted landscape scene from my imagination. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. 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.
