Beech Springs Farm
An Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Wagon Wheel Bench'
Beech Springs Farm
Oil on Linen Panel
9 x 12

Some days just don't turn out the way you think
they will...  
I was on my way  to deliver a painting yesterday morning
when I ran my car into a car that had stopped suddenly
in front.of me.  No one was hurt (the most important
thing), but my car got the worst of it.  After I had made
sure that everyone was ok, I suddenly realized that I had
all my plein air gear in the back.  Because many items
in the car slid forward on impact, I was very happy
to find that everything was safe and sound - especially 
this plein air painting from Beech Springs Farm.

Glad things were ok after the impact.. the bench beckons me to sit, such a treat to be surrounded by the beautiful flowers, the pink and blues lift up the total composition!

Thanks, Sherry. I was very glad that all of my art things and paintings in the care were safe too!

Padmaja, the place where we painted was loaded with flowers and flower beds, but this bench with the flowers all around it seemed a perfect spot to paint!

Thank you, Hilda. I sure don't want to repeat that experience for awhile.
