Prairie Memories

Prairie Memories was painted for an Invitational Exhibit at the John Parrott Gallery in Belleville Ontario, the theme being what inspires you about Georgia O'Keefe's work.
Her use of gradation in her paintings was that inspiration for me. This painting is 24" x 36", acrylic and sells for $950.00 through
Daily Paintworks.  https://www.dailypaintworks.com/artist/joan-reive-5712/artwork
