Painting - O/c
A covered bridge in Amish country with an Amish buggy and horse with a shaded and fenced dirt road framed with two giant oak trees. This lifestyle has been longed for by many a big city person. Quiet country roads with the sound of horses hooves clopping along. The birds singing, a babbling brook and a shady lane all contribute to this scene. The foreground is a dark shady lane framed with to large oak trees on both sides of the oil painting. Blotches of sunshine punctuate the dirt road. A white fence lines both sides of the road and leads the viewer's eyes to the covered bridge with horse and buggy coming out of it towards the viewer. The sun is shining directly on the red bridge and the dark interior shows cracks of light through the walls. A quiet stream is flowing under the bridge with cattails and deep reflections in the water. Beyond there is the hint of a distant fence on the far side of the river The road leads across an open field and into a grove of trees. The scene is finished off with a pale blue summer sky and soft white clouds. An Amish lifestyle is one of hard work and quite nights. I got the idea for this painting by driving around the Michigan country side.
