Morning on th Missouri River Flood Plain, 2007


11x14, acrylic on panel
Collection of Mr. & Mrs. Bruce Louthan

I went to Little Sioux, Iowa as an overnight security person for Young Women's camp--over 100 girls 12-18. On the drive back the next morning at sunrise the light was so beautiful that everywhere I looked I saw paintings. I had already taken some pictures coming out of the Loess Hills and when I was on Interstate 29 at 75 mph, I saw this one and could not deny it.

I have also found that I like painting on panels more that canvas. I gesso them myself and the smooth-toothed texture and firmness of the panel appeals to me.
