Midwestern Wild Habitats Series
August 10, 2008
I was recently hired to create a triptych of works that are going into a new hotel that will be in the Chicago area. The hotel will showcase the work of many Chicago artists. I was excited about the opportunity to follow through on an idea that I have had for sometime. I've been wanting to create a number of pieces that honored the wildlife and landscapes of the midwest. These are limited edition screenprints that will be going into a number of rooms at the hotel. The first image is a cross section of a tallgrass prairie, with a coyote and some underground inhabitants. The second is of a marsh with cluster of Sandhill Cranes, and a peak into the watery environment surrounding their island. The final is of a bald cypress swamp of the sort that can be found at the very southern tip Illinois in the Cache River State Natural Area.
These are available in the ETSY Shop.
