Inspired by the beauty of the prairie, artist Susan Rose captures the land, sky and creatures that call it home. “I like to think of the natural world around me as ‘God's Canvas’, and I am challenged to attempt to capture an essence what I observe on this ‘canvas’ with others in my art. I am particularly drawn to capture the play of light and shadow on the local landscape, and focus on the small, but beautiful, elements in nature that are easily overlooked or taken for granted.
