'Wildwood Loosestrife'
Oil  11 x 14

When our plein air group, the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters
went to Wildwood Park in Harrisburg, PA to paint last Summer,
I wasn't able to go.  Fortunately, I was able to get over there while
the yellow lotus and loosestrife were still blooming and I got some great
photographs to use as references for this painting.

I loved the low-hanging limbs of the tree on the left, and the
way the mountains, Susquehanna River, flowers and fields created
these terrific bands of color.

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Beautiful landscaping Claire.! The flowers are so colorful and makes the painting come alive. Love the tree limbs..the darks and lights make it look so realistic. Excellent.

Mon oeil est attiré par ces touches de rose et c'est fort agréable... Ce paysage traduit pour moi parfaitement le mois de juin, que j'aime particulièrement, où tous les beaux verts de la nature nous sont offerts...

This is beautiful, Claire. For some reason, pinks always draw my eyes to a canvas and this is no exception. What a gorgeous day this was!!

Dh and I are planning an RV vacation back that direction, and I think I had better study up on the flora and fauna of the region. I have never heard of 'loosestrife'. Your painting creates a gentle softness and I like the ability to peek through the trees to the hills beyond. Very nice Claire!
