an Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'The View from Vivian's Farm'
Oil on canvas panel
8 x 8

Thank you to our new SVPAP member, Vivian Brandler, for
inviting us to her beautiful farm to paint.  There were 
so many potential paintings available because every
where you looked there was a new and different view
just waiting to be painted.  This is a view looking
across the road from Vivian's farm.

Thank you, Vivian for the wonderful day of painting,
and your very gracious hospitality!

Here's the second piece I did while I was there - a one hour
study of a chair that was outside by the chicken coop.

Here's a picture of some of the artist's who came to paint:

Thank you, Azra - yes it was a beautiful day with wonderful views to paint, and a lovely hostess who made us warm tea to ward off the cold wind that was blowing!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Pat. I am still thinking of the beautiful painting you just posted on your blog. I can not (nor do I want to) get it out of my mind!

What a wonderful place to spend the day painting, and your two paintings are both the sunny light in the first one. Have a nice Sunday!

That is a LOT to be covered on a 8 by 8! The view is magnificent and you presented it so beautifully Claire!

Mary Beth Brath said...

Beautiful work. I saw you over by he chair before I left that day. Amazing how you got another painting completed. Vivian's property is so inspiring. I think we were all "in the zone" even when we stopped to have tea.

Beautiful painting Claire; love the composition... and that little chair reminds my of the one I left in KY in my landscaping. I would set a pot of flowers on it each spring.

Giselle McMenamin said...

Just beautiful Claire. Wonderful depth, composition, brushwork...

Pattie Wall said...

Looks like so much fun, to have a painting view at every turn and time with painter pals! Love these pieces you have done. I can feel the peace and tranquility there.
