|Jacobshagen champions the
American prairie in his art. For nearly forty years, he has been fascinated
with the landscapes and skylines found around his home in Nebraska. This
canvas features the artist's signature low horizon line, dominated by the
dramatic atmospheric effects of light in the expansive Midwestern skies.
Pictured at dusk, sunrise, night, and other times of day, his landscapes
are usually dotted with farmsteads, grain elevators, or highways.
