I am a prairie girl at heart. This summer I had a chance to see the west coast (Vancouver Island) and spend some time down there. I began to miss the flat plains and crop colours. I took a plane back to Saskatchewan. It was my first plane ride ever. Don't get me wrong the mountains and oceans of the west coast are a majestic site from a plane, but they pale in comparison to the unique patch work of colour that defines the prairies. It reminded me of a big, comfy, patch work quilt...and then like magic, this image popped into my head! It is done in watercolour, unfortunately my scanner cannot pick up the full range of watercolour colours so I had to fix it up a bit in photoshop. None the less I am pleased with this piece.
