Paintings from the Artist Colony Experience

I can not even begin to describe the incredible experience
of being a participant at the first Gettysburg Festival Artist Colony
last week.
How amazing to be able to completely dedicate three whole days
to my craft, study with Master Painter Lisa Egeli, explore
Gettysburg looking for the perfect painting spot - and then
be treated to gourmet meals and air conditioned buses
that transported us to and from our painting events.
A dream come true, and many thanks to everyone associated
with the Gettysburg Festival who made all of this possible.

Here are two of the plein air paintings that I painted during
the Artist Colony.

'Morning's Light'
(View from Little Roundtop)
Oil 9 x 12
Linen on Panel

'Summer on the Trostle Farm'
Oil 9 x 12
Linen on Panel

Beautiful, paintings, Claire. You are the master of painting trees. I also like how interesting you made the large foreground on your second painting, all the while, leading our eye right where you want it.

Both paintings are lovely - looks like your workshop was full of learning and practice experiences!
