Sometimes you see a picture or a scene and you’re immediately struck or taken aback. The image is forever tattooed into your brain! This is what happened when I saw a photograph a friend posted online. With their permission, I painted my interpretation of their photo. I found the different layers and colours of grasses in the prairie landscape to be naturally beautiful. Swaying under the tension of a heavily clouded sky. Waiting for rejuvenation from the coming rains. You can almost feel the anticipation and tension hanging from the pending storm.
