I can see the fields sprawl over the landscape to the curvature of the earth.  A horizon so distant it seems impossible to reach.  Yet, the winds from that distance cause my ears to twitch when the silence turns to a roar of wheat rustling from miles around.  Somewhere is a world of people, parties, and extravagance.  Here, the only thing is the self, solitude, and simplicity.  

This painting would great in an average sized space that is dark red, orange, dark yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white, gray, beige, or wood.

Mike Kraus was born on the industrial shoreline of Muskegon, Michigan. After earning his Fine Arts Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he attended Grand Valley State University for his graduate degree. From there, he gained varied experiences from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, Art Institute of Chicago, Hauenstein Center For Presidential Studies, Lollypop Farm Humane Society, and the Children's Memorial Foundation. And every place he worked, he had his sketchbook with him and found ways to be actively creative. In 2014, Kraus became a full-time artist by establishing Mike Kraus Art. Since then, he has sold hundreds of paintings that are displayed in nearly every state and dozens of countries. Currently, Kraus lives in Rochester, New York with his beautiful wife and goofy dog.
