Konza landscapes from 2013
In June of this year, I was privileged to be a guest at the Konza
Prairie Nature Conservancy, located in the Flint Hills of Northeastern
Kansas. Since most of the area is closed to the public, I was thrilled to
experience the true beauty of this world.
Over thirteen square miles of virgin tallgrass is managed by Kansas State
University and is used as a natural area to study the ecosystem. It contains the
largest remaining area of unplowed tallgrass prairie in North America.
Limestone-capped hills overlook the property. During spring and summer,
the prairie is an ocean of colorful wildflowers.
This series of paintings is the result of the influence of that special time.
I wanted to capture the passion I felt at the memory of
this dynamic, ever-changing landscape.
