Valley Farm 14x11 Oil on RayMar Panel -
Earlier in the summer fellow artist Don Kolstad and I took a drive from Anchorage out to the Palmer area. In the Mat-Su valley we have quite a few farms. Don and I found a spot between two farms and set up our painting gear we both did between 4 to 5 paintings that day. We brought our lunches and spent the day enjoying the weather and plein air painting.
This painting comes from that adventure. I had done a smaller plein air piece with out the horses. I decided to do a larger painting and add the horses to the painting. Took lots of photos that day so had the plein air piece and reference photos to create this painting. It is for sale and available on my website: www.kurtjacobson.com
