One of a pair of charmingly detailed naive folk art paintings of farmsteads near Lilloet in British Columbia. They are incredibly detailed. This one shows a weir going into a lake complete with flowers, possibly water parsnip, and a child feeding ducks from the bank. The path from her leads up to the fenced farmstead where a woman stands behind a gate. In the yard beside her are various feeding animals and fowl with saddled horses in the stable behind. High up on the hill there is a windmill and to the right of the large trees there are cattle on the hill. It is signed J.Champness and dated 1893. Oil on card,British Columbia, Canada, 1893.
