Storm Chaser presents 80 of Ian Sheldon’s vibrant, highly dramatic storm paintings. His works speak of a connection to the land and sky of the prairies, but more than that, they draw us into the experience of that seemingly infinite region. His portraits of the prairie’s subtle lands and tumultuous storms capture the spirit of place that is so integral to a life surrounded by the vastness of an unending sky. Ian’s storm paintings, in their complexity of colour, texture, light and shadow, serve as the centrepiece to Storm Chaser, but by combining them with his own captivating writing and selected excerpts from other exceptional writers and poets, Ian offers us a layered book that is a paean to the joy and beauty of living on the prairie. Now sit back, breathe, and let yourself be drawn into Ian Sheldon’s world of wind, grass, sky and spirit.
