"Using Middle America as her muse, Kowch draws the history of a particular place -- invariably rural -- to the surface as it collides with a new reality in layers of metaphor and moodiness. The faces of her women may remind you of characters in a Tim Burton film."

Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow


















The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. Another one of my absolute favorite stories, and one that is full of rich imagery to paint. I've also been waiting to give myself a reason to paint something with a pumpkin in it, so I really had fun with this one!

I can definitely see some Andrew Wyeth influence with the boots in the background. I am a HUGE fan. This turned out great, Andrea!
