Prehistoric Landscaping

“Crowley's Ridge: Rose-tinted Glasses”, Sumi & Acrylic Inks & Acrylic Paint on Canvas, 8”x 21”, $300

Originally titled “Approaching Crowley’s Ridge with Rose-tinted Glasses”, I shortened the name after considering that my recently renewed interest in the area hardly qualifies as a “first-time approach”. Although, only a meaningless rocky hill to anyone else in the world, this ridge is nothing short of the prehistoric vein of life for the entire southeast Missouri region. This seemingly simple ridge, for most is just a beautiful rise from the wetlands to the hills and forest of the southern Midwest. – DN
