Arlenne's Idyllic Farm
Drawing - Pen & Ink
Arlenne J. Langlois, my mother, is gone, but her spirit lives on in the many drawings she did later in life.
Mom was an eastern Washington State farm girl prior to World War II, and she was never without a pet her entire life. This drawing incorporates everything she loved in life: an idyllic country farm abounding with wildlife. The detail is incredible and the more I look at it, the more I see.
She never took an art course and only drew for a brief period of time, but, I think you will agree, this is a fine example of American Folk Art. She put her vision, love, and honesty in every stroke of the pen, and when I look at it today it makes me smile.
