Paintings at Historic Midland Railroad Hotel, Wilson

Please join me for an evening of conversation and art at the historic Midland Railroad Hotel, Wilson, Kansas this Thursday, May 26, 2016 from 5:30 pm until 7:00 pm. A selection of my prairie paintings will be on display throughout the summer. I’ll be on hand to answer questions about how I select and fold native stone into the paint to give the art the grit and spirit of the prairie landscape.

Stone Moon

 

Ancient and wise, the moon reminds us that time moves forward. The cycles embody the spirit of closing and renewal. This painting strongly resembles the native stone of the prairie, built with many layers of paint, stone and markings. It contains iron and Kansas limestone to signify renewal. Sold to a lovely collector.

Hope Runs Through the Middle

 

There are times in our life when we may agonize over choices or outcomes. In those times, nature reminds us to carry on. See, the river runs. See, the grass grows. See, the hawk soars. In our faith, we abide in hope, but like the natural world around us, still move forward living the life we have. This prairie landscape is lovingly infused with iron and Kansas limestone to signify strength. Sold to a lovely collector in Kansas.
