David Mudrinich is an artist and art professor at Arkansas Tech University. He has always been intrigued with the natural environment as a sense of place and the various characteristics that make any particular location unique. These artworks are inspired by the Oklahoma Tallgrass Prairie and the Ozark-River Valley region of western Arkansas. Both areas are part of the Arkansas River watershed and they provide a transitional environment that moves from east to west. The works are in a variety of 2D media that includes oil, pastel and conte crayon. The compositions portray both expansive space, along with more intimate observations such as a hive of bees.
