Title of KU Med Center Project / by Karen Matheis

The title of the KU Med Center Project is "Meadowlark." I searched for a title that would be representative of this large scale project of nine paintings. 

The Western meadowlark is the state bird for Kansas and Nebraska and other states that have prairies.  The meadowlark creates its nest in grasslands, prairies, and abandoned fields.

The bird is a sweet smallish bird with a yellow underbelly.  

I like the title because one can hear the bird early in the morning in the summer in Kansas, which is the feel for me for the paintings.
