- January 5th: HITTing The Road - The Journey IS the Destination
Karen Ann has been traveling extensively across the USA. She brings the 'Journey' home sweet home with some of the amazing destinations unexpectedly landing at along the way, from plein-air field studies to the studio... the joys of HITTing the road revealed.
- February 2nd: Slices of Red - Awakenings
The 16 Plein Air Paintings, that began as a summer series of the sunrises en plein air... then, the transformation of those inspirations to the grander scale that the glorious sky is, for a new series of studio SKYscapes debuting at the March 2nd walk.
- March 2nd: SKYscapes: Plein Air to Studio - Slices of Red
The plein air series inspires these studio interpretations of our glorious sunrises and sunsets on a grander scale. Large scaled paintings to reflect our endless skies. Florida versions of snowflakes. No two are ever alike
