Prairie River Winding, 2013

Oil on Canvas

Lisa Grossman has painted the Kansas River (or Kaw, as it's known locally) from its banks, explored its sandbars, kayaked it, and photographed it from a small plane along its 170-mile course from Junction City to Kansas City. This painting celebrates her experience of flying over the river and reveling in the vast horizon and great sweeping bends that aren't visible from the ground; as well as a sense of movement, flux, and time passing.

Grossman lives in Lawrence, Kansas.
