This is a nature painting by a Dutch woman I admire, Marjolein Bastin. You've probably seen her greeting cards or maybe even received one from me; or perhaps you use one of her spectacular nature calendars. Her work is so exceptional because she has a keen eye for the details and whimsy of nature. Hallmark enticed her to offer her art through their company and it has been a great relationship. She and her husband bought property in Missouri near Hallmark and have been restoring the land back into a tall grass prairie. I look forward to visiting it one day.
