Nachusa Grasslands, Illinois
June 12, 2018
Oil on canvas
9 x 11 in. (22.9 x 27.9 cm)


The contours and occasional rock outcrops of the low hills and ridges of Nachusa Grasslands hint at a variety of erosive and depositional processes that have molded this karst landscape since the Illinoisan glaciation. With so much of the state being fairly flat, I’ve found it to be a pleasure to portray this Preserve’s bumpy topography as well as the views available from its hills.

Painted on location, finished in the studio. Canvas mounted to hardboard.
