PINK HOUSE ON MARKET AND 24TH STREET By Cecelia Lyden





SOLD

at the Camp Hill Plein Air Event





After horrendous weather on Thursday, it cleared up enough on Friday to paint outdoors. A few of us met at Willow Park in Camp Hill and I set up across the street from this pinkish colored house.The sky kept changing from partly sunny to partly cloudy, so the pink color was subdued. Willow Park is small and narrow, not much of a park, but the homes and their gardens surrounding it are quite lovely.

SPRING AT LAST By Cecelia Lyden


oil on linen
11x14


It was windy and cool last Thursday for our paintout in Camp Hill's Siebert Park, but there was just enough sunshine to entice some of us to try. The borough park has lots of different trees, some of which had new spring green growth and blossoms. I like the winding, up and down roads and paths and I tried to capture the hilly inclines and and the dips in the terrain.

RIPPLES AND SHADOWS
Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Ripples and Shadows'
Oil   6 x 8


Whew...finally got my new power cord for my laptop and
have the laptop up and running!  Our Plein Air Group, the
Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters went to Children's Lake in
Boiling Springs last Thursday.  It was the first sunny day we
had in many days, and it was wonderful to be out in the fresh
air painting and watching the fishermen fish in the 'Catch and
Release' section of the stream.

More pictures of the artists at work.

EARLY SPRING AT THE COPSE
(Gettysburg Battlefield)
Original Plein Air Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Early Spring at the Copse'
Oil   6 x 12
Plein Air

The Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters had a great day to paint
last Thursday at the 'Copse of Trees' on the Gettysburg Battlefield. 
It was an overcast day,with the sun trying to break through,
providing some weak sunlight. I chose to paint the back view of the
Copse because I thought the stones in the foreground added
to the composition of the piece.

This particular area on the Gettysburg Battlefield is located
 near the 'Angle', which some historians have argued was
where the turning point of the war took place, and that this area
represented the Confederacy's last major offensive
operation in the Eastern Theater.

Hazy Skyline by Julie Riker

6x12 oil

I am pleased to announce that this painting was recently awarded 2nd place in the Mechanicsburg Art Center's spring juried show.  This was painted at the West Fairview boat launch directly across the Susquehanna from Harrisburg and the capitol.  It is a view I have attempted to paint several times and have always had difficulty with pushing the buildings back in space, but on this particular day the hazy atmosphere reduced everything to shades of gray.  It was one of those rare moments when I finished a painting in just a few hours and did not feel it needed any more work.
