CANYON LIGHT & PRAIRIE SKIES
July 2010

Welcome to CANYON LIGHT & PRAIRIE SKIES
 
Greetings!

    Walk the grasslands. Touch the clouds. Sail between canyon rims. Feel the sunset graze your skin and reflect on prairie blossoms. It's time to feast your eyes, relax your mind and let your heart soar. Art is the stuff of dreams and Matthew has some tasty new paintings to sample.

In the ungrazed Flint Hills, Tall Bluestem, Switchgrass and Indian Grass grow to seven feet in height. Their presence is a sign of healthy and recovering Native grassland. In August they suddenly bolt toward the sun to blossom. Taller than a person can reach, they turn from blues and greens to deep oranges, rusts and pale yellow ochre.

In the sky, cool northern and wet southern air masses mix to form towers of liquid energy. The clouds rise with heat, push against each other, and rain down lightning and cold bursts of wind.

Walking though the hills before the storm, you will hear and smell the sizzle of the grass. 
 
This 24" x 36" custom-framed oil is available for you to enjoy.
Glicee prints in various sizes also available!


New Commission, Custom Order Your Own!

Comission

 

We proudly announce the completion of a new painting, commissioned by a former Wichita, Kansas resident. She will soon display a piece of the prairie in her Washington D.C. home. This reminder of the wide-open spaces of her youth will grace her walls for years to come.

You too can custom-design a painting to fit your ideas, memories, and lifestyle. Please contact Matthew for more information.
