Antique Tractor
Oil on linen panel
9 x 12 in.
Available from The Red Oak Gallery, Conroe, Texas

Antique Tractor was painted as a demonstration for the public in San Angelo, Tx, for part of En Plein Air Texas 2019. There is an outdoor museum of antique farm implements just off Main Street where the Concho River winds through town. She has always enjoyed painting equipment, trucks, structures, etc,; the things that bring man’s existence into the landscape. The shapes of man-made objects add interest to the organic elements found in the landscape.

Fran has participated in many plein air events around the U.S and her awards include Best of Show at Plein Air Southwest.

The artist spends much of her time painting outdoors on location and working from life. “My goal is to capture the light and feel of a specific location or setting, to interpret the world in a way that will inspire others and create a sense of harmony.” Her style is a painterly realism, her strokes are confident yet spontaneous, her colors are clean and fresh, her approach is bold. She is an accomplished figure and portrait painter and is known for her intimate, elegant still life paintings.
