Oil on canvas

Private collection

This field painting was a feature of my co-led Nature Preserve tour at Lockport Prairie and was painted immediately prior to the arrival of the participants. The view chosen hints at the historic aspect of how this unusual river valley prairie related to the vast prairie that occupied the bluff to the west.
