Flowing Fields

Oil on canvas
13 x 30

There's a lot of farm land around here. At first glance it may appear to be rather boring, relatively flat fields with little else. If you look a bit more closely though, it can be quite beautiful.

This particular scene is just outside of Femme Osage, a very small town with a church, antique store and a couple houses. It sounds like a French name to me but the area was inhabited by German immigrants because it reminded them of the Rhineland. It's also the heart of Missouri wine country. No grape vines on these hills, but there is a quiet beauty here.
