i am a big fan of illinois artist sharon franceÂ and have personally collected several of her paintings. she specializes in tonalist, luminist and landscape painting, and lives downstate on an old farmstead. sound old-fashioned?Â maybe not. there seems to be a fresh modernity in every piece. there is a certain freedom in this type of versatility, as her pieces can fit with traditional and modern decor.
sharon’sÂ soulful compositions are complemented by soothing color selections, and each piece tells a very intimate story about the heartland, whichÂ sheÂ hopes will revive others’ nostalgia. as far as i am concerned she is one of the great current american landscape painters.
Â purchase a piece for yourself, and you may feel your blood pressure go down.
