"A South Dakota Sky (Tribute to Robert F. Martin)"
Oil     12x16
Inspiration and Design:
This painting was completed as a tribute to my father-in-law, Robert F. Martin.  Bob passed away a few months later on March 3, 2013.  This landscape was chosen because it stirs memories of him.  My goal for this painting was to say that the heavens now have a little more color, while the world has a little less.  It occured to me after completing this painting that this is likely how Bob saw this spot as he was color blind.
