Old Wilton Center

Red Tavern

This piece showcases several early American design elements that I "borrowed" from historic paint-decorated walls from 19th century New England....including a weeping willow design (from Moses Eaton's stencil kit),  the apple trees in the distance (from Rufus Porter's scenic landscape mural at the Captain Abraham Colby House, Amesbury, MA), the large tree in foreground with puffy foliage (from a landscape mural at the Elwin Chase House, Topsham, VT),  foreground daisies (from early primitive murals at the Hackett House in Thornton, NH), the yellow tavern  (from Rufus Porter mural at the Kent House, Lyme, NH), and the  stenciled border (such borders were often painted in the taverns throughout New England in the early 1800s).  This original acrylic on canvas is 20" X 20" , gallery wrapped and ready to hang...or it can be framed at your preference.   - SOLD

Mustard House with Red Door

White Tavern

White Mountain Primitive - The Hackett House

Around 1800, an unknown muralist traveled the backroads of northern New Hampshire painting scenic landscape murals on the walls of homes, inns and taverns along the way.  "Littleton Inn"  is my interpretation of the c1800 scenic landscape murals found on the walls of the Littleton Inn.  The Inn sits at the edge of the White Mountains in the small town of Littleton, NH.  Re-creating this mural, with its naive mountains, rolling hills, and colorful colonial houses  was such  joy!  I love its carefree spirit and primitive style!   "Littleton Inn"  has a warm antique patina, evoking the spirit of 19th century paint-decorated walls in New England!  The original acrylic on canvas painting is for sale.  This painting is framed and ready to hang.  Framed dimensions are 34" X 34"

Just finished this painting of a mustard house with red door. Painted on a 20" X 20" fully gallery wrapped canvas, it is ready to hang...no frame needed! As with all of my paintings, this piece showcases early American design elements from historic paint-decorated walls of 19th century New England!

Independence Day 1818

America

Porter's View I

Simply New England is a quintessential harbor scene in the tradition of Rufus Porter.   In Simply New England  I incorporate two styles of early American decoration...that were both very common in early 19th century New England. The folk art landscape in the style of Rufus Porter is complemented by a classic  "Borderman"  style swag design, stenciled at the top of the painting.   This original painting is highly distressed and antiqued, giving it the look of an old paint-decorated wall.  Simply New England  is an acrylic painting on Cambric canvas.  The majority of my paintings are sold without a frame, however this original is matted and framed with glass. The beautiful antique gold Lars Juhl frame is a perfect match for this early American harbor scene.  Painting is 29" X 29".  Framed dimensions: 35" X 35".   Please contact Suzanne for pricing. 

Fine Art Originals and Museum Quality Giclee Prints

Each painting is a tribute to the genius of Rufus Porter, and to life in the small villages and coastal towns of 19th century New England.  With every piece, I incorporate the principles of painting scenic landscape murals as documented by Rufus Porter in his 1825 publication, Curious Arts, and then I add a touch of my own personality and style!  Back in the day, Porter covered the walls in homes, inns, and taverns with peaceful and serene New England landscapes and colorful vistas of rural life that spoke to patriotism,  a pride in America, and the bounty of this young and plentiful country.  Even during the coldest  and darkest of New England winters, Porter's folk art landscapes would brightened homes and hearts with the coming promise of summer. 

I am currently accepting commissions to paint early American landscapes that are personalized just for you. Perhaps you would like to see your own house in the painting!? I can personalize with colors, objects in painting, and platform (canvas, wood, or salvage piece like an old cupboard door!).  I look forward to hearing  your thoughts and ideas for a   1-of-a-kind personalized landscape!   Contact Suzanne

Recently, I sold a canvas fine art giclee print of "Porter's View" (the combined scenes from Porter's View I and II) to the owner of an antique farmhouse in Sudbury, Massachusetts.  The homeowner says: "Your work is beautiful and we're very happy about this purchase! We recently had a holiday party and our guests loved it too!"

Classic Porter-inspired harbor scene.   Originally painted on a coffee table (44" X 19.5").  Coffee table is also for sale!  The U.S. flag in this piece has 20 stars, which only flew for a year...April 1818 thru July 1819.  

This original painting, which now resides in a home in Merrimack, NH, was done on a vintage breadboard.  Hence, in the print you will see some of the interesting attributes of the ancient wood! The inspiration for this painting came from the harbor scene painted on the walls at the Daniel Carr House,  North Haverhill, NH.

Beautiful quintessential Rufus Porter style harbor scene.  20 x 20 original acrylic on canvas.

Fine Art Giclee prints available

Around 1812, when young Rufus was a fife and drummer in the Portland Light Infantry, he trained many days on Munjoy Hill.  At that time, the hillside was planted with magnificent feather duster Elm trees, which surrounded his view of the harbor.  Some believe that the expansive harbor scenes that he would later paint on the walls of homes, inns, and taverns were inspired by his memory of those days spent on Munjoy Hill overlooking Casco bay with its numerous islands and sailboats.  This painting came about after a visit to Old Port, Portland Maine, where I stood on the  Eastern Promenade (Munjoy Hill), and experienced the same view that inspired young Rufus Porter 200 years ago! 

A classic Rufus Porter inspired harbor scene with a peaceful and serene feeling.  

The owner of a traditional home in Windham, Maine recently purchased a 44" X 19.5" Fine Art Giclee print of "Independence Day 1818".  The homeowner says: "Once again, many thanks. Your work is beautiful, and I'm so glad I found you."

Porter's View II

Porter Tavern

Around 1800, an unknown muralist traveled the backroads of northern New Hampshire painting scenic landscape murals on the walls of homes, inns and taverns along the way.  "The Hackett House"  is my interpretation of the c1800 scenic landscape murals found on the walls of the Hackett House in Thornton, NH.  The primitive depiction of the White Mountains and the fanciful tree-like flowers rising out of the foreground are the things I like best about this painting.  "The Hackett House"  has a warm antique patina.  It is a great large-scale piece that evokes the spirit of 19th century paint-decorated walls in New England!   The original acrylic on canvas painting is for sale.  This painting is framed and ready to hang.  Framed dimensions are 34" X 34"
