The Bonecreek Museum of Agrarian Art in David City, Nebraska is celebrating Nebraska's 150th birthday with an exhibition titled "150 Artists, 150 Artworks, 150 Years of Nebraska Art in Miniature." My piece, North of Town, was accepted for the exhibition, wahoo, so fun! I am honored and grateful.

This painting is a scene very close to where we live. It was a foggy morning and I was out and about with my camera. As the fog started to dissipate, the sun came out behind me and lit up the road and the fields with beautiful warm light. The fog was still hanging in the distance making for a dramatic contrast. I'm not sure my painting does it justice. I really enjoyed painting it.

The exhibition with 150 pieces of art will be on display at the museum from May 3 through July 30, 2017, with an artist reception scheduled for July 29, 2017. I'm looking forward to seeing all those artworks. I have visited this museum and it is lovely and would be worth your while to go for a visit. I'll be posting more about that as the time approaches.
