Michigan Moooood



18" x 18" Oil on Canvas: "Autumn Fields": SOLD

Just finished last night and still in the drying stages, this rural Michigan scene I call Autumn Fields.



Every country road around my home is beautiful. It's such a pleasure to go anywhere any time of year. The landscape is just breathtaking. A few weekends ago my husband and I traveled just a few miles away to take some photos of autumn leaves and we found lots of farms and cows. It was a lovely day and these cows were doing what you see in the paintings. Just laying in the grass enjoying the fall day. I'm sure they weren't used to being photographed and the center cow looked at us pretty intently all the time we were there. Little did she know she would be captured in an oil painting. Nor does she care!

This painting will be available this week on E-bay.
