Outdoors Art in Middleburg, Virginia
The image above is from a painting that is part of an exhibit titled "Afield in America: 400 Years of Animal and Sporting Art" at the National Sporting Library and Museum which we visited yesterday. Hunters, fishermen, horses, and dogs are the dominant subjects.

This is the angling section of the library. I have many of these books.
Pam settles down with a British magazine on fox hunting.
