Plains Limestone

The American prairie is home to spectacular limestone outcroppings weathered by eons of time. These historical tablets reveal stories of ancient days and fossilized marine life entombed in stone. Here, nature reminds us that life is always transforming. I painted this piece to resemble a dark slab of weathered stone teeming with fossil life. The patinas are brown, grey and green. The piece is comprised of natural elements, including layers of earth pigments, rust, limestone, oil rock and rainwater. 48×48
