MY OWN PLANET
Acrylic on wood panel - 7x5" - (C)ruceDocker,2009
The Flint Hills are one of those unexpected parts of the landscape, in what is traditionally thought of a just a flat part of the country, rural Kansas. The Flint Hills are short rolling and choppy hills of tall prairie grass with natural rows of short weathered trees growing predominately in the shallow valleys. The view is generally uninterrupted to the horizon by man made objects. This gives a view of the sky that rivals that of Wyoming's big sky country. Towering thunderheads can make a person standing alone, looking up, feel intimidated, as well as in awe at the size of the clouds.
