I’ve been drawn repeatedly to the paint Nachusa’s gravelly knolls and ridges. Compositionally, they and their oak groves lend themselves nicely as focal points. As high places they offer something I always dream of in exploring Illinois’s prairie remnants: a view of thousands of acres of high-quality tallgrass prairie.
Painted on location.
