Show Proposal

Close to home in the Midwest  16"x20", oil on board


From 2016 to 2018, I produced a series of Iowa landscape paintings specifically for a traveling show. The goal of this series is to present the audience a vision of the midwest landscape that spans from photorealist to stylized.

Below is a gallery of paintings that would be included in this show:
