Artist's Description

Our tall grass plains of Oklahoma are as popular as the thousands of buffalo that once roamed them. I want to create the effect of the Oklahoma bison wandering through the tall grass plains. I will create realistic prairie grass in the foreground and the detailed buffalo painted in the background. I will also add the shield from our state flag to represent our state plus our Native American heritage. The prairie grass painted into the shape of the buffalo should give a nice, artistic affect

Spirit of the Buffalo originated as a public art project combining art, commerce and civic pride in Oklahoma featuring Oklahoma artists. Initial proceeds benefited the Nature Conservancy's work in Oklahoma. The website project continues through private funds.
