To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee, One clover, and a bee, And revery.  The revery alone will do, If bees are few.

The prairie here is wide open, void of trees with the exception of pines far off in the distance. The warm summer air is filled with sweet notes of the Meadowlark's song.

The gentle swirling breeze picks up in strength causing wave-like ripples along the tips of the tall grasses as they dip and sway with rhythmical movement, reminiscent of the surface of water.

Little effort is needed to find oneself slowly slipping away into a peaceful daydream.

"I was influenced by the natural brown tones within the landscape.  The result was this sienna toned artwork, which made the light purple blossoms even more eye-catching."  -Alison
