Prairie Flowers

Instead of lake pieces here are two of prairie flowers constructed in the same "ortwork" technique.

Summer Prairie Flowers - 13"x 11"

Spring Prairie Flowers - 13"x 11"

These are two of three studies I have made in preparation for a possible commission project. Between getting settled back here in Tennessee and working on this project there's been no time to add to my 100 Lake series. Number 51 was the last. I most likely won't have the time or space to create more until after the new year.

More is to come about this prairie flower project.

It's all about the vista! These are equally effective and charming. You're a wonder.

Love the prairie studies!

Oh, pretty! As Deb said, the perspective is especially great. Those flowers give you a chance to use up tiny little orts, don't they?
