I love sandhill cranes. I live in one of their migratory paths, so twice a year I can see them fly over, if I'm lucky. They fly at a high altitude, sometimes flying so high they are barely visible. In a flight of fancy, I imagined them flying over a county fair in the spring, on their way north to Jackson Lake or Yellowstone or some other beautiful summering spot. This painting is on linen mounted on gatorboard.

Nancee Jean Busse can’t remember a time when she wasn’t processing her experiences and observations through drawing or painting. From elementary school through a graduate degree, painting was the thread of continuity that honed her love of art, nature, and observation. Many years of working as an illustrator, then art director of an educational publishing company provided an opportunity to learn and appreciate the value of strong design and simple forms. The color, simplicity, humor, and narrative quality of children’s illustration provided yet another springboard for visual expression. NJ Busse has always loved the expansive beauty of the American West and its wild animals. The unsurpassed beauty of western Colorado provides the artist with unlimited opportunities to paint powerful landscapes and awe-inspiring wildlife. In November, 2013, she was profiled in Western Art Collector Magazine. In 2014 she was profiled in Southwest Art Magazine and again in Western Art Collector Magazine. Her paintings have been featured in American Artist, American Art Collector, and Art of the West Magazine. Nancee lives with her husband, dog, and cat at the foot of the spectacular Colorado National Monument. The ever-changing beauty of the red, slickrock canyons and panoramic vistas provide her the wondrous opportunity to chronicle the wide-open beauty of the America West.
