Garden Still Life Painting

Still Life Painting of Old Water Pump and Day Lilies

Original image size: 22" x 30"
Framed to size: 32" x 40"

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.
