West of here it a little town with a huge tower, Goehner, Nebraska. Over 1/4 mile tall. Driving I-80 in or out of Lincoln, it's a beacon you can see for a long time before you get close to it. And when you get there, you still aren't close to it.
One day I'll be able to capture in my paintings the immense vast of the sky and miles of prairie but for now these paintings are fun to put on canvas. The exercises have given my hand a new looseness and I'm enjoying the process.
