Town and Country in Fauve

Town and Country in Fauve
Original 54" x 24" x 0.75" painting
Three 18" x 24" canvases
Golden and Liquitex acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvases

The Fauve style of painting is one of my favorites, and this composition is a variation on one I've done in the past. I just sold two of my Fauve Farm paintings yesterday! (See January 27 blog entry.)

I am often asked to reproduce my own compositions for patrons, and this one--or variations on this theme--is one I've reproduced several times; so i know that my patrons enjoy the interplay of color and the folk-art-type of style.
