Landscape paintings are more than depictions of pleasant scenery. They are reflections of the artist's inner landscape. They convey emotion. I love a breeze through boughs and leaves, and illustrating this movement with sweeping, spiraling lines. Those lines are the feel of wind across my skin. The curve of grass, like the curve of my own hair. What happens out there, to that land, happens to me, is outside of me and inside of me all at once. Desert Canyon After Rain, 18x24 Silk painting
Silk scarves are up for the holiday season! Consider Raebird Creations when looking for unique gifts for friends and family. Got some new inventory represented here, too. Like these dragonflies zipping above a stream of gold and burgundy eddies. http://www.raebirdcreations.com/store/c2/SIlk_Scarves.html

Landscape Series, Number 2: Tallgrass Prairie This scarf illustrates tallgrass prairie in the Flint Hills of eastern Kansas. In early spring, false indigo blooms purple, grasshopper sparrows sing in barely audible insect-like voices, and rainfall replenishes the watersheds where ribbons of green trees follow the drainages between gently rolling slopes. Inspired by a May trip to Konza Biological Preserve near Manhattan, Kansas.
