Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Crossing the Little Buffalo'
20 x 16

I have always loved the mournful sound of train whistles, 
especially at night-time.  It was so intriguing to wonder where 
the train might be traveling...were there passengers on the train, and
what were those passengers thinking about as they moved 
forward in the dark of night.

For years, I've have had my eye on this beautiful old railroad
bridge.  It is located off Second Street in Newport, PA,
and crosses the Little Buffalo Creek.  Last Fall I was delivering paintings
to the Perry County Council of the Arts, and was fortunate to find
'my' bridge in full autumn regalia, on a beautiful sun-filled afternoon.
I'll bet quite a few trains have traveled back and  forth
over this old bridge!

La lumière qui s'infiltre à travers le feuillage met en valeur toute votre peinture... J'aime beaucoup le travail de votre eau avec ses reflets... Vous avez capturé magnifiquement bien son atmosphère. Ce lieu vous parle tellement que vous en avez fait une toile merveilleuse.
J'apprécie aussi le texte qui accompagne cette belle peinture.
gros bisous

Have to say, Claire, that this is a favorite of favorites. Truly stunning work, my favorite things, trees, water, changing leaves. Beautiful!

Merci, Martine! La lumière sur le feuillage de l'eau et à l'automne a été ce qui m'a donné envie de peindre cette scène autant que le vieux pont ferroviaire belle elle-même. J'apprécie vraiment vos commentaires.
