119 Upperville Oak

When it comes to painting at horse shows, (which if you didn't know, I happen to do a lot. Especially old showgrounds with old grandstands and buildings with character. No landscaping, just landscapes.) the Upperville Horse Show is in my top two (depending on the weather). The Upperville Show has been going on since 1853, the oldest horse show in the USA. (They did have to stop for a few years in the 1860's.) The showgrounds and the rings are filled with old oak trees, which makes for easy painting. Just find a spot to set up the easel, look around and paint.

Since the oaks are living trees and some very old, the show does loose them to disease and storms, but they are constantly replanting trees to continue the tradition. Here is a painting of a jump under an oak which is no longer there.
