"A PORTRAIT OF THE YORKSHIRE DALES"---ARTIST STATEMENT
Sheep farming, sheep dog training, and dairy farming are all dying professions and, to me they are some of the most beautiful of all professions and if you ask any shepherd, the most difficult. One Shepherd told me that none of the next generation wants to do these types of farming because of the hardships and of course, little money. So all of my paintings in this show are about these farming professions that will soon be extinct.
|Biography from B. Deemer Gallery:|
|Cynthia Kelly Overall is an Elizabethtown, Kentucky artist whose oil paintings depict scenes of the disappearing professions of herding and farming with an old-world charm. Cynthia's paintings share a luminosity and technical application that is reminiscent of Old Dutch masterworks, but are unmistakably done in her own hand. Her work gives reverence to the last remaining vestiges of archaic ways of life that are fading into the shadows as contemporary life threatens to swallow our past.|
Cynthia Overall received her Undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky, and a Master's degree from Rosary Graduate School of Fine Arts, in Florence, Italy.
