King of the Prairie

This idea has been rolling around in my head for a while.  Out here in Oklahoma we live with both of the "creatures" in this painting.  It is a perfect example of the push and pull that human beings have struggled with for centuries.... nature VS human comforts....some who take too much, and those who pay for it....those who learn from the past, and those who repeat it.... sustainability VS depleting our gifts..... honoring our gifts and using them wisely, or not.... I could go on but ultimately it will be you, the viewer who gets to interpret the story.  Notice too that there is a storm brewing in the back ground.

Below are the beginnings and nearing completion of the painting.  I need to sit with it for a week or so and then will finish it.

a week later.... It is finished and sent to the new art gallery in town, The Artery.

Sugar Plums Dance .... Tulsa Ballet

In order for Sugar Plums to dance in their heads, you first need to learn how to dance.  This painting was done after a visit to the rehearsals for the Tulsa Ballet's opening season.  To bid on this or visit my ebay gallery, Click Here
