DANCE OF THE DOGWOODS
Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell



'Dance of the Dogwood'
Oil  12 x 9


Several weeks ago, members from the Susquehanna Valley
Plein Air Painters met on the beautiful grounds of Allenberry to
paint.  The day was sunny and the dogwoods were blooming.
As I was walking around trying to decide what to paint, I found this
dogwood with the twisted 'dancer legs' trunk, and then
noticed how the reflected color of the petals was creating a pink
glow under the curved porch's roof. 


If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Beautiful Claire - I love the subtle reflection of pink in the porch ceiling.
