On Landscape: Of This and Other Worlds
March 11-12, 2022
The Cove, McKinney
In this collection, I pushed the boundaries of traditional landscape painting by employing non-traditional image-making processes. I was inspired by efforts to preserve Texas’ Blackland Prairie at the Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary. The Blackland Prairie is an endangered ecosystem. Thankfully, many years ago, the Heard family of McKinney placed their land beyond the reach of developers. The various plant forms used to create these paintings are native plants from the Heard Wildlife Sanctuary, and the animals included in the paintings are among the many that live there.
