“Visions of the Great Plains” consists of drawings and watercolor paintings inspired by the American Great Plains, by Scott Kirby. Referred to as an “accidental artist” by Sandpoint Magazine, Kirby began painting in 2005, after 9 months of drawing with dual-tip brush pens. Although the attempts to capture these mostly imagined visions are quite intentional, the origins of Kirby's transition from music to art was, in a way, “accidental,” and unexpected.
While drawing with his daughter Sara one afternoon, Kirby was suddenly compelled to continue into the night and following days, being bombarded by mental images which demanded expression. Weeks turned into months, and drawing turned into painting, all scenes rooted in a long relationship with the landscapes of the plains and prairies. Though some are inspired by actual locales, most are imagined scenes, or composites of familiar images, objects, skies, structures and enormous open spaces found in the High Plains and the Heartland.

Kirby has made his living as a musician for his entire adult life, and has had no formal training or professional background in art.
