This is an absolutely charming American folk art painting depicting an idyllic country scene. The work, done in oil on academy board, shows a woman with a sleeping child in the foreground, while in the central distance can be seen a group of building, above which are a richly colored sky and clouds. On the right is a small waterfall with a shepherd surrounded by sheep. The trees and foliage throughout the painting are limned in a whimsical folky style.

The sight size of the painting is 24" by 18", with the framed size being 28" by 22". This piece is in superb condition, with no flaws to speak of. The period gilded wood frame (with wooden backing that is of the same general period) is also in excellent condition.
