Who is this you ask? It's me. Still hanging around. I'm usually on Instagram @imkarensb if you're curious. I had a wonderful week attending a painting workshop and thought I'd share some photos here with you. Let's see if I can remember how to post on here. Things have changed a lot and I also don't remember how they work.
The workshop was by Kim Casebeer in Manhattan, Kansas. Kim is a well known oil painter and has multiple awards and professional associations. Since the workshop was reasonably close to me, I decided to take the leap and join in.
This area of Kansas is home to the Tallgrass prairie in the Flint Hills of northeastern Kansas. We were able to enjoy beautiful vistas like this of the Konza Prairie which is owned by The Nature Conservancy. It is located within the largest remaining area of unplowed tall grass prairie in North America.
We spent 3 days painting plein air (outside) in the wind, sun and rain showers. For this rookie painter, that was a challenge.
