April 26 – June 8, 2019 – 50th Annual Smoky Hill Art Exhibition, Hays, KS
I’m so honored that Spirit of an Autumn Tree was selected for the 50th Annual Smoky Hill Art Exhibition in Hays. This is my rendition of a prairie tree clothed in the fading cloak of leaves, resolutely facing the stark west wind. Acrylic with natural elements, including limestone, prairie soil and rainwater. The painting received the smoke of fallen leaves to symbolize change that comes to all deciduous trees. At such times, nature reminds us there is a time to let go. Surrounded by a thick weathered frame.
