Why We Live Here
I am selling this painting with all proceeds going to help a young man (former elementary student of mine) finance a trip to Haiti to help build an orphanage. It is $225 plus $10 shipping and I am selling it framed. The painting was inspired by a painting I saw of Italy, but I decided to do my home state of Vermont with Camel's Hump in the background, a colonial style house, Rosa Rugosa in the foreground and field of rape seed which is the source of canola oil and is being pressed in New Hampshire and sold in Farmer's Markets. Trials on growing rapeseed in Vermont have been studied by the University of Vermont, but sunflower growing seems to have taken hold throughout the state. Both sunflowers and rapeseed make for a very picturesque landscape! Email me if you are interested in purchasing this painting which will aid Josh on his humanitarian adventure.
