Breaking the Plain

Breaking the Plain__8x10 oil on linen panel__for Passing America: The Great Plains

This is a "drive-by" painting, created on the way home from Colorado's cool summer a few days ago. We left before daybreak so that we would be hitting the western edge of the Great Plains at daybreak. PERFECT!
Just east of Santa Fe, the plains open up, and here is where I started my farm observations this time. I like to imagine what is going on at the farms where the little lights are.
My exhibit will be delivered to The University of Nebraska's Great Plains Art Museum next month for the opening of the show on October 7. Y'ALL COME!! Between now nd then, I am finishing up the paintings, and FINALLY posting the studies on the project blog. Click to see the project overview....
