As a North Dakota native, Sandi Dahl grew up around the colorful plains and beautiful landscapes of North Dakota. Living on a farm, she was inspired by the beauty in her own backyard. Dahl graduated from the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor’s degree in Home Economics. After graduation, she started traveling the US sharing her artwork at national art fairs and galleries.

Prairie Olympus shows a cloudy North Dakota sky over the flat land. The clouds in the sky are overpowering the painting as if they represent the Mount Olympus of the Greek Gods. The clouds are the source of water for the grasses and prairie land of North Dakota, helping the land grow and develop.

Multi-colored painting of clouds over the prairie in summer. In silver-colored metal frame.
