Good Morning Prairie-Commission (16 by 20" oil on canvas) In Private Collection
Created as a commission, this painting has just about everything one can ask for when it comes to a relaxing view of the Prairies. It is a real treat to be able to see vast open grassland in the summer time, there always seems to be something happening once a person spends enough time in the landscape observing all that space. In this painting large rocks left behind by the glaciers referred to as "glacial erratic's" reside along the fence line, a large Cottonwood tree sits far off in the distance near the horizon in all its glory in the late summer heat catching the rays from the sun. The Blackbirds have also found their place in this painting, too, enjoying the late morning sun.
