Last night the Kansas City Symphony Orchestra (Symphony in the Flint Hills) played on the Upper Turkey Springs pasture between Florence and Cedar Point, KS. Thousands of us sat among prairie grasses and flowers listening to compositions that complemented the land and sky. The work of composers such as Copeland (the Red Pony), Dvorak (In Nature’s Realm), Bernstein (Theme from the Magnificent Seven), Barry (Dances with Wolves Suite) created a wonder filled evening.
Approaching Storm is a prairie painting that combines plein air with studio work. The images are meant to be sensuous with an air of danger.
A poem about the prairie by Emily Dickinson
To make a prairie it takes a clover
and one bee…
One clover and a bee,
The revery alone will do
if bees are few.
