Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Dance of the Dogwood'
Oil  12 x 9

Several weeks ago, members from the Susquehanna Valley
Plein Air Painters met on the beautiful grounds of Allenberry to
paint.  The day was sunny and the dogwoods were blooming.
As I was walking around trying to decide what to paint, I found this
dogwood with the twisted 'dancer legs' trunk, and then
noticed how the reflected color of the petals was creating a pink
glow under the curved porch's roof. 

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

The first ballet exercise at the barre is the small knee bend, I think this tree went a little too far Beautiful painting of A-berry and should look great in their Addison room.

Ahh, Claire! This is just so beautiful! Brings to mind the fresh and clean breezes of spring. The rotunda area of the porch is just so lovely and I love the pink reflected in the ceiling. I find myself longing for a hammock on that porch, or maybe a rocker, a good book, a glass of iced tea...I also think on the people who first lived in this home.
