Fling Wide the Cloak

Each plains storm has its own personality. This is my rendition of a pale winter storm harnessing the power of the setting sun. It contains elements to balance Earth and Sky, including rainwater, limestone, natural pigments and topsoil. Inspired by a passage from celebrated Great Plains author Willa Cather, “The sun was like a great visiting presence that stimulated and took its due from all animal energy. When it flung wide its cloak and stepped down over the edge of the fields at evening, it left behind it a spent and exhausted world.” So pleased this piece went to a lovely couple in Arkansas.

Pale Moon Field

This painting is made entirely of limestone and sandstone from Russell County, Kansas. I painted in an antique grain sack. Today it sold to a beautiful couple for their new limestone house. It could not had found a better home. I am enormously grateful and hope it gives you much joy.


This was one of my favorite summer pieces, a homage to the lovely Kansas Prairie Coneflower. It now is with two fantastic collectors in Kansas.

Kansas Grainfield

So enormously happy that Kansas Grainfield is going to a wonderful collector in Kansas City. Congratulations on your new home and thank you for decorating with this piece.

Limitless Plain

Delivered Limitless Plain to a lovely mother and son duo in Kansas City this past weekend. I adore my fabulous collectors. I hope this painting will give your home much joy.
