Carlisle House Series
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Red Maple Shadows'
Oil  8 x 8

I always love to see the flowers that people plant - no matter how
stately or humble the home, there usually is a pretty splash of color
blooming somewhere in a pot or in the yard.  Several summers ago, I went
around the town of Carlisle and took some reference photographs
of some of the places I thought would be interesting to paint.  This house
had so many things about it that I thought would be fun to work with -
the fence, the flowers in the window box and the beautiful
colors of the red maple tree shading the house itself.

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

The colors you used in this one are so fantastic! I love red maples..they seem to pop up off the landscape in the fall. My mom likes to go out for a drive to look at them when I visit her.
