An Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Petra's Magical Garden'
Oil on Linen Panel
9 x 12

Yesterday I painted in the beautiful gardens of my yoga
instructor's house.  I felt as though I had been dropped
into paradise...such gorgeous drifts of flowers, and 
the Yellow Breeches close by.  While I painted, hummingbirds
came to feast on the bee balm, and Petra's chickens and one
of her cats came to visit me as I worked.  I almost expected
to see garden fairies flitting around the flowers...
After I was done painting, I went into her yoga studio
for my yoga class - what a great day!

Our plein air group, the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters
has been invited to paint there this coming Monday, 
I think they are going to like it...a LOT...

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

Vous ne pouviez pas voir la fée, puisque cette fée c'est vous qui erriez avec vos pinceaux...
Cette peinture est magnifique... Des couleurs qui m'émerveillent, une atmosphère fabuleuse. Comment ne pas être bien dans un tel cadre ?....

Gros bisous

Sigh...oh so beautiful, Claire!! I so want a yard like this some day. Unfortunately, my once green thumb seems to have turned a bit brown. What a wonderful day this was!

Thanks so much, Maria. I still have not figured out how to get to your blog - will keep trying!

Thank you for your lovely comment, Martine!

This is such a beautiful place, Sherry. She has planted things so they look naturalized - just the way I like it!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Hilda! I actually got goosebumps when I first saw the flowers :)

I know Linda - me too. I will see you tomorrow morning!
