'Weeping Willow'
(Children's Lake, Boiling Springs, PA)
An Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Weeping Willow'
Children's Lake, Boiling Springs, PA
Plein Air
Oil on Archival Linen Panel
10 x 8

I grabbed my pochade box to get ready to go
painting this morning, and remembered that I had never
removed this plein air painting I had done last week at
Children's Lake in Boiling Springs.  That day at the lake was a perfect 
Summer's  day, with ducks and their babies, geese and swans
out on the lake...but this beautiful old willow is what caught my eye.  

Imagine how many children this old tree has seen feeding the
ducks over the years!

Bonjour chère amie,

En cette période de l'année où la canicule sévit en ce moment chez moi, il est très agréable d'admirer cette belle oeuvre qui apporte une belle fraîcheur...
Très joli travail...

Je suis heureuse de vous retrouver mais je ne serai pas très régulière durant ce mois.
Gros bisous ♡

Thanks so much, Sherry! I had such a beautiful lake to my left, and so many ducks, geese, and a pair of swans - but that tree kept calling to me!
