Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'View from Little Round Top'
Oil on Linen Panel
8 x 10

Although today was rather overcast, it turned out
to be a wonderful day to paint.  I met up with several artists
to paint from the crest of Little Round Top on the
Gettysburg Battlefield.  From that vantage point,
there is a painting waiting to happen no matter where you
stand.  I've always liked this view through some of the
enormous boulders up there, and was rewarded to hear
quite a few tourists repeat my sentiments as they
stood on the boulders and looked out across the valley.

Of course, there were also several people who
apologized for standing in my way...then cheekily asked
if I would put them into the painting!  I said that I would do
so gladly, if they wouldn't mind standing there for a
couple of hours.... 

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.
