An Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Historic Peace Church'
 Built in 1798, Camp Hill PA
Plein Air
Oil on Linen Panel 
9 x 12

Today was the first day of the second annual Camp Hill Plein Air Event.
I drove around to find a place to paint, and wound up
leaving the borough of Camp Hill and heading for the
historic Peace Church.  I drove down into the cemetery,
and found the perfect angle to catch the sunlight on the
building, and also that magnificent Red Maple.

This was done entirely on site.  I am glad I finished up
when I did because the grounds-keepers came in to
mow, and decided to mow right where I was painting!

Here's my set up - I was about 85% - 90% done at this point.
No one was mowing at this point :)

That tree is absolutely stunning! I love old cemeteries attached to churches. Actually, I just like cemeteries and I am not sure why. The beautiful headstones, the stories behind those interred...
