Karen Ann Hitt Original Plein Air Oil Painting Copyright 2016

Purple Mountains Majesty Above Fields Of Gold 8.25 x 29 Plein Air Oil by Karen Ann Hitt

Mountain top views remain in our view, the temperature of our valleys are ever changing with each harvest, each season. This Plein Air painting was inspired by the light hitting the fields of gold.  The urgency to capture the inspiration came when those fields of gold began to be harvested... making them green, not gold.  Note the right side of the field below the Colorado ski runs, the harvest had begun!  _____________________________________________

winner of "Outstanding Landscape" 

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.
