A is for Adams

Today is day one of the Blogging A to Z Challenge

I thought I would take this opportunity to learn a little more about art/artists/painters/paintings and master works than I do know.

Ottis Adams was an American impressionist painter and member of the Hoosier Group of Indiana painters. He spent his youth in Franklin, Shelbyville, and Martinsville, Indiana and attended Wabash College for two years. Born: July 8, 1851, Johnson County, IN  Wikipedia

Impressionism and American painters – I did not necessarily put the two together.
