About the Artist:
Cheryl Korb is a Pennsylvania native, living where she grew up in Dalton. Painting has always been a part of her life, and after raising three children and stealing some time for painting when she could, she now paints full-time.
“I enjoy painting country scenes, using the countryside around where I live as natural inspiration,” Cheryl claims. “I like to find old picture frames and then stretch a canvas to fit. Then I choose a season in my head and go from there. I use a limited palette and the painting just grows with a life of its own. I use lots of mountains and fields and barns and pastures and animals. I love to do mountains in the background, then many distant fields and woods and farms tucked into hills and valleys, then as the painting progresses and the objects get closer, I go into more detail.”
Milk cows, horses, pigs, chickens and sheep, these are her favorites subjects, which she often paints on old wooden pieces. The dimensions of her works vary from miniature to panoramic.
Dogbotz Boneyard has invested in the artwork of Cheryl Korb because of her love of nature and unembellished folk art style. On old pieces of wood or metal, the artist displays solitary animals on simple, unobtrusive, monochromatic backgrounds. Her artwork seems as if it belongs in an old barn, work shed or farmhouse, and her endearing subjects depict images as ancient as life itself. And so, from our Dogbotz Boneyard Gallery of Art for your own personal collection, we present Cheryl Korb’s Red Rooster on Old Cheese Box Piece.
