Bringing in the Cows

Bringing in the Cows
18" x 24", acrylic on canvas, by Marie Fox

Marie Fox's folk art captures the quaint villages, rural scenery and historic New England towns of a long ago time. Her homespun, Americana style fills one with warmth, nostalgia and good humor of more innocent times.

As Marie tells it: "Growing up by the Bluefish River and sailing our red catboat, I took in visual stimulation from the historic structures of Duxbury, Massachusetts and a landscape painted by the seasons. My imagination flowered in the colorful garden of stories recounted by my family. Anecdotes passed down from one Marie to another through three generations helped me inhabit the past as living history."
