Camp Hill Plein Air Event
Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Secret Garden'
Oil  8 x 6

Day One - Camp Hill Plein Air Event

We had such a gorgeous day for the beginning of the
Plein Air Camp Hill Competition and Arts Festival .
I found this little garden on the corner of Willow
and 24th Street in Camp Hill.  Lots of people stopped  to
chat, and some even came back again to see the
 progression of my painting.  A neighbor of the former owner
of the house also stopped to visit.  She was going
to head home and give the lady a call because she knew
how pleased she would be to know that someone was
painting a picture of her garden!

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.

Wonderfully composed, Claire!
I like how the foliage is indicated by the loose strokes.

Thanks so much everyone for your extremely kind remarks on this painting. As soon as I saw the light on the birdbath, I knew it was going to be what I was going to paint!
