BARE TREE IN THE GARDEN
by Claire Beadon Carnell
'Bare Tree in the Garden'
Oil on linen 12 x 9
This week the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters
had the wonderful opportunity of painting in the gardens
of the Pennsylvania Governor's residence. The buildings
within the compound are beautiful, but my eye was drawn
to this scene of a bare tree standing starkly against a
backdrop of colorful fall foliage.
Although the day was raw and cold, we were warmly
greeted by Tammy and other staff at the residence,
and were even invited to come inside to warm up with
some hot tea and freshly baked cookies. Now that's
what I call some plein air roughin' it :)
