Farmhouse art always evokes a relaxed, laid-back, honest way of life from a by-gone era. In the age of industrial farming and refrigerated shipping, the farming has undergone changes that a modern shopper may not recognize or even desire. Regardless, many consumers have no other choice than to entrap themselves in the mold of the modern life that separates them from the humble source of numerous consumed goods. Not much in the current economic and retail environment can bring back that nostalgic home grown feeling that can only come from standing in the farm house that has produced the goods to be consumed. Not many consumers can find a farmhouse to go stand in, but many can, however, enjoy the artwork that represents that surrounding. Brought inside the living room just by the virtue of modern medium.
Stand in front of a dirt crossroad that seems to lead to the horizon. Flat farmlands as far as the eyes can see. Soon these fields would be living with harvest worthy corn. The farmlands still go as far as the eyes can see. But the tall corns block the view.
Snow covered ranch with a winding path around the grazing field. Wishful of the green pasture, enduring the harsh winds and cold, just so the animals would have greenage to graze upon the season after. Soon the animals would rest on their bellies after a full day of grazing.
Gaze upon the snow covered evergreen forest that lines the edge of the ranch. Animals haven't gone through that and really shouldn't. Animals should be kept within the fence. Soon. the wolves would have to be checked. often they come out of the woods.
Clear blue sky, fertile lands, gentle beasts, and a hard day's work -- all the makings of a wholesome American farm. Feel the soul of America through these art works.
