“Family farms dot the landscape where I live and I see beauty as well as history in each one. They come alive when I meet the families and learn their stories. As the suburbs spread, I see the family farms being swallowed up. With my painting, I try to preserve these memories.
Most of these paintings are part of my Lang ”On the Farm” Wall Calendars,” which were published for 7 years. One of the greatest blessings from this project was meeting so many wonderful farm families and learning their stories! Some have remained friends for years!
To see me actually painting some of these farms, check out my “Brush Strokes on the Farm” painting video!
