Help identifying 'big sky' paintings
July 18, 2012 11:50 AM   Subscribe

Ten or twelve years ago I saw a series of paintings I really liked at the Denver Art Museum. The paintings featured idyllic farm-like scenery under bright blue skies with white clouds. Distinctly the sky made up 80% of the image, so the ground and barns, etc. appeared to be quite small and the sky seemed huge. There were at least 3-5 of paintings in this series, and the canvases were very large. Can anyone identify the paintings or artist?

Was one Keith Jacobshagen's "By June The Light Begins to Breathe"?

Jacobshagen's a good bet. This one?

Heh, jinx, stellaluna. I love Jacobshagen. Never heard of him until I got to Nebraska.

Could also be Don Stinson.
