The Ladies And The 1953 Golden Jubilee 20" x 24" Plein Air Oil by Karen Ann Hitt (private collection)
winner of "Outstanding Landscape" Also view it in the Plein Air Magazine June/July 2017 Issue.
at the W.P.S.E. Exhibit. This painted en Plein Air at a families farm of a tin trimmed barn riddled with bb gun test runs from the kids testing their skills. Two of the last horses from the farms stud line, being fed by the eldest daughter. The working 1953 is actually the newest edition to the heritage here... One of my favorite details of Plein Air Painting is the capturing of history... while it is still with us to view.
