America the Beautiful

One of the great things about plein air painting is that you get to see the space around you in a whole new light – instead of just rolling down the highway, passing by fields and forests and vacant lots, you’re on the lookout with beauty all the time, everywhere.

So, since it just happens to be America’s birthday, I give you: America the Beautiful – En Plein Air.

O beautiful for spacious skies,


For amber waves of grain,


For purple mountain’s majesty


Across the fruited plain,


America, America, God shed his grace on thee,


And crown thy good with brotherhood,


from sea,


to shining sea.
