An original painting from the 81 Wild collection.


Illinois is the Prairie State, so prairie grasses, farmland, big sky, tornadoes and thunderstorms, where the sky is purple/green like a bruise, plus lightening. City of Chicago has skyscrapers and rivers big and small. Lake Michigan is magnificent. Southern Illinois is like a different world from the north. We have driven through on family road trips a couple times and it’s amazing how long you can drive without seeing anything but corn. Kind of zen while driving because the individuals stalks all blend into this endless horizon.


Acrylic, soft pastel and pencil on paper, 5″ x 6″, 2020.
