What a refreshing painting! Artist Larry DeGraff was surely in the middle of this peaceful stream to capture the gentle water flowing over the rocks. The cool blues in this piece make it feel nice and shady, while just a hint of afternoon sun hits the rocks.
Seen from above, the Kansas river looks grand and powerful in this watercolor by Lee Copen. The artist painted with a very warm palette, capturing the water with yellows and lilac. Our favorite part of the piece is the small bridge in the distance, connecting to the road that winds around and out of the painting.
Living near Wichita, Kansas, artist Nancy Whitaker captures the southern part of Kansas in the fall. This winding stream stands out among the yellow fall foliage, and the lazy clouds overhead indicate a mild breeze.
Another view of the Kansas river, this time during a hazy twilight. There's very gentle colors throughout this piece, including shades of blue and purple in both the water and the sky.
The gallery's only photographer, David Zlotky captures Topeka's Shunga Creek amidst the dense trees and foliage. The creek is so still that the reflection is mirror-like, and the greens give this Kansas scene an almost jungle-like quality.
