"Fairy Prairie" by Li Hua Mahalik

Oil on Canvas, 14x18

This painting was based on a photo I took in yarnell that wasn't color correct because the printer sort of ran out of ink, but I thought it could be a nice exercise to see how I could make it work. 

While I was painting the bushy grass at the foreground, I suddenly realized why Van Gogh painted the landscape the way he did. The world is full of texture; how else can one paint, for example, the grass, to show how the wind had worked on it? The trees, and the winding roads.

To purchase this painting, please go to my website;
