Bare with me as I try and add my Flickr account to the side bar of my blog. When I can (there seems to be a programming glitch right now), I'll be able to share with you a rolling, changing portfolio of recent finished works. Meanwhile, you can get a preview here!

Back in the studio after a week in the Northwest. My eyes are adjusting to the bright prairie light, after all the dense green Pacific lush.

Last summer, I worked on a project that involved many illustrations from the Tallgrass Prairie ABC book, and new ones, too. Now this work is part of the main lobby and children's area exhibits in a new natural history museum in Manhattan, Kansas. The Flint Hills Discovery Center opened it's door April 14th, and now interprets the beautiful native prairie (similar to our own Iowa Tallgrass) in a lovely, spacious facility. My work was enlarged into a big mural. You can see it on the mezzanine that surrounds the lobby. Don't let 8 foot-high Greater prairie chickens scare you off!
Here's a photo of the mural taken by Kansan studio Szel Photography. It's the first I've seen of the finished interior. Looks fabulous! I can' t wait to go down in early summer to see the place in person.
Thanks to the Szels for letting me post their photo:

Sometimes a group of objects or a scene or an image will captivate solely on how its color vibe speaks to me. I'm alway on the look-out for a good palette. I was pulled (no pun intended) by this cache of heart-shaped magnets recently. I like their honesty in how each hue related to one another; take one away and something seems missing from the spectrum.
You are what you color.
