"Iowa Farm," by John Kerss of Des Moines.
"I've always been intrigued by portraying depth and movement in paintings. I love landscapes because of the great depth of field involved, so I paint impressions of landscapes, not necessarily pictorially accurate but as remembered imagery. I explore abstracts playing with wrapping depth through color around line frameworks. I'm experimenting with still life where the sense of depth is critical and the subject more intimate."

"...I like painting Iowa most."
