'Floating Downstream'
Oil 24 x 30

This is a painting of an incredibly old and beautiful
oak tree that lives on the banks of one of the tributaries
of the Yellow Breeches Creek, along the Dickinson School Road.
I am so glad that I got to paint it, because age and
some recent bad weather have taken its toll on this
tree, and unfortunately it is just a shell of its former self.

This painting will be on exhibit with other paintings
from members of the Daily Painters of Pennsylvania blog
at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building East Wing Rotunda
in Harrisburg, PA during the month of September 2010.

Oaks are my favorite tress; so majestic! This one is no different. I love it dressed in it autumn finery too. Being on the banks of a river makes is perfect. Lovely piece here, Claire!

Just lovely. You captured such a soft warm feeling in this painting. I can easily tell you feel passionate about this place by the way you rendered it. Its like a dream...

Beautiful depth in this painting. And I see it's quite large.

I can picture myself sitting on the bank in the shade of that tree and listening to the water gurgle and the birds sing. Beautiful job on that stately old tree.

Such an amazing tree - it's great that you were able to capture it so well before it fades away.
