MORNING'S LIGHT
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Morning's Light'
Oil on Linen Panel
9 x 12

I painted this while participating in the first Artist's Colony
sponsored by the Gettysburg Festival.  The vantage point is
looking down from Little Round Top toward Devil's Den.
It was a beautiful summer morning, and we got there just
as the sun was starting to kiss the tops of the trees.

Morning's Light will be part of an exhibit of work created by
Daily Painters of Pennsylvania, and will take place at the
Brafferton Inn in Gettysburg during the month of November
2010.

Great painting, Claire. You get so much volume to your trees and your greens are the greens found in nature. As I said, you are the master of trees.

Count me in as another Claire Carnell tree lover--Before I knew you, I picked up some of your tree note cards at Lyn's Art and Soul--Your trees have Grace, Beauty and Soul.

I also love your tree, and I love the many varied greens you used in this painting...especially love the blue green hazy color you chose to paint the background trees.
