Kansas Wildflower Series
Inspired by the native wildflowers of the rolling flint hills of Kansas, Michelle Leivan has expanded her exploration to the floral form. Hiking in the luscious meadows and along the rustic roadsides Michelle delights in recording each floral sighting with anticipation of interpreting each with her expressive and distinctive impressionistic style. Her bold pallet and energetic paintings weave philosophical and intuitive compositions for modern contemplation of nature.
Several of these new pieces have been honored by being selected to hang in the Kansas capital building, including Governor Sebelius' conference room and two were recently selected for the Art in Embassies Program where they will be a part of the exhibition at the U.S. Ambassador to Paraguay in the U.S Embassy Residence in Asuncion.
