About the painting: Murphy Farm

A couple of weeks ago, I finished a commission for someone who wanted me to make a painting of his family farmhouse that was built circa 1841. He had sent me several photos of the house up close, but we decided on a composition that included the land surrounding his house, to give it, what I call, a more folksy feel. He also asked me to add fall colors and his dog, Koda.

I house and dog sat at Kevin's house a few summers ago. It's a beautiful place that he's refurbished, paying attention to the smallest details. I love going there, especially because Koda is super soft and sweet.

I'm so honored to have had the chance to commemorate his home in this way- such a wonderful place that I know will be around for another 100 years.
