Reflections of Missouri is an extensive collection of the Pen, Ink & Watercolor works of art by noted Missouri Artist,
John Bolton Stoeckley. Spurred on by requests from many collectors of John's work, the book brings his artistic interpretation
of Missouri into one collection for the enjoyment of many.
The heritage of Missouri is captured in precise detail and vibrant watercolor, with images of historical buildings, old barns,
covered bridges, mills, college and university buildings, riverboats, and natural landmarks throughout the state. In the spirit of the
"Show Me State," John has brought together not only the tranquility and history of the rural countryside, but the grandiose
architecture of the states' cities and towns. The body of the work selected for this book reflects the evolution of his work over
the last twenty years. This collection truly shows the reader the history of Missouri, as well as providing accurate and
interesting, anecdotal commentary for the images. John's mastery of his chosen medium is apparent in each drawing and is a
credit to each site.
The book also provides a wonderful travel log for those who want to discover the rich tapestry of history in Missouri.
The book is divided into six regions of the state, capturing the notable historic sites of that area, across all seasons of the year.
