Happy Kansas Day / by Karen Matheis

January 29 is Kansas Day, a holiday celebrated since the 19th Century. . The purpose of this holiday is to commemorate the 1861 admission of Kansas into the United States. It is also a holiday which allows citizens of Kansas to rejoice and take pride in the state in which they live.

To celebrate this holiday, I am posting a landscape painting of Kansas in early spring.
