"Smoky Hill River Study" "Aromatic Aster Study" "Ice on Cedars Study"
In "Aromatic Aster Study," Matthew experiments with new styles of rendering
wildflowers larger than actual size.This represents how the human eye perceives
wildflowers as intensely focused and defined points of brilliance
within the large prairie landscape.
Wildflowers represent an integral facet of the biological prairie system.
Matthew focuses on painting recognizable wildflower species typically found
hidden amongst the grasses.
