Plein Air Event
Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

DAY THREE - JUNE 12, 2011
Gettysburg Fringe Festival Plein Air Event

We met today at Beech Springs Farm to paint in the gardens
while the Gettysburg Festival was holding its Farm to Table
culinary event.  The guests were up in the barn eating, and we
were so thankful that one of them came down to let us know
that the National Weather Service had issued a severe
thunderstorm warning (accompanied with strong wind and hail)
for the area where we were painting.  Thank you to that
very kind and thoughtful gentleman - we were able to pull
our gear beneath the overhang of the barn and ride out the storm.
We only got thunder, rain and a little wind - no hail, thank goodness!

I asked the owner of the farm if SVPAP could come
to paint on her property (there are many gardens), and
she said 'absolutely!'

Raining in the garden...

My painting, in progress.  Going to grab some supper, then
hope to work on this while all the images of that beautiful garden
are still in my head!
