“The Pioneer Woman” Folk Art Painting

pioneer woman folk art painting
We found this painting in this old stained oak frame in the 80s at an antique mall in West Virginia. We attempted to discover who Mildred Bennington was aside from an obviously talented artist. As a collector, I would describe the piece as somewhat primitive but skillfully created including the manner by which it was framed. Signed along the bottom of the painting in pencil it reads “the Pioneer Woman” Mildred Bennington 36.
