Farm on Church Road

There are places of such pristine beauty, that I hesitate to paint them. This happens to be one, a small unnamed farm located in a sheltered turn of Church Road, Sherman, Connecticut. I came upon it one summer afternoon while bicycle riding. A stream runs under the road here, just past the bend and several old and immaculately kept farm buildings are sited around this natural intersection. There is a magic about the placement of the buildings and the light that lays across the lawns between them. Highlighted contours and water defined edges, shadows of substance and lots and lots of that September green-gold.
