COUNTRY CHARM is a still life painting of a rickety old hand-operated water pump, typically found on back country roads in Southern Ontario's farmland. This one has been overgrown with Shasta daisies and Day Lilies that flourish in Ontario country meadows. Rusted watering cans and broken clay pots complete the scene. Although this is essentially a still life painting, summer breezes echo in the flow of the painting and movement of the plants and wire fencing.

This image was published in the October/November 2009 issue of Country Woman Magazine. I welcome your inquiry into the availability and price of this garden still life painting; or into the commission of your own original watercolor, oil on canvas or acrylic painting or wall mural of your favorite garden or floral photograph.
