I painted "Reflections on Country Living" to celebrate the charm and beauty of the farming life. I always enjoy putting animals and small details throughout my paintings, as well as recalling a time in history when charming architecture, such as the quaint barn and house were a natural part of the farming lifestyle. The lazy cat is meant to accompany the viewer, as it sits on the stump, pondering the geese, birds, and horse as they go about their day on the farm. The animals are meant to be worry free, reminding us to let go of our own worry and take in the enjoyment of each day--perhaps this is easier to do during a day on the farm.
