An Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'View Down Nauset Beach'
Oil Plein Air
Nauset Beach, Orleans, Cape Cod, MA
6 x 8

I haven't posted up here in awhile because I have been
up in Cape Cod for the past week painting.  Except for the
first day, the weather was gorgeous.  This is a view of 
Nauset Beach, where within minutes of beginning to paint
there was a sighting of two sharks very close to the shoreline.
It's been a big problem down there - warning signs are everywhere.
I thought maybe it was just another art critic...

Here's my set-up right after I finished the painting

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Thanks for your comment, Claire. It is sooo very much appreciated!

I love your painting. I think Cape Cod is magical and hope to return next summer. Please post more of your work from there!

This is a beautiful painting, Claire. The sand looks so realistic..Love it! Will you be going to Brooklyn next week? I won't be able to make it Saturday but I'm aiming for Sunday if they're open..

Beautiful work, as always, Claire. You've captured so much of my imagination when I think of Cape Cod, a place I've never visited but always wondered about. I hope you had a grand time! I think I read a snippet somewhere about the shark sightings...JAWS much?

Your work is lovely, Claire. I also was at Nauset Beach recently, where it was closed due to shark sightings!
