"High Plains Skyscraper"
Growing up in the Panhandle it seems the flatness of the land goes on forever. After moving down in the Hill Country I still missed the flat land with no trees or hills in sight. This is a painting of a grain elevator outside of Amarillo on HWY 287. It seems like the only and the tallest structure of the panhandle is the grain elevators. Love the contrast of the horizontal elements of the nature and vertical design of man made structures within the painting. This painting is large measured 4 ft. X 6 ft. and is in private collections.
