an Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'The View from Vivian's Farm'
Oil on canvas panel
8 x 8

Thank you to our new SVPAP member, Vivian Brandler, for
inviting us to her beautiful farm to paint.  There were 
so many potential paintings available because every
where you looked there was a new and different view
just waiting to be painted.  This is a view looking
across the road from Vivian's farm.

Thank you, Vivian for the wonderful day of painting,
and your very gracious hospitality!

Here's the second piece I did while I was there - a one hour
study of a chair that was outside by the chicken coop.

Here's a picture of some of the artist's who came to paint:

This is great fun checking the blog to see else posted their painting from Vivian's place.I hope more do. Two paintings and a photo on such a cold day--a true plein air painter.

Thanks, Cecelia. That hot green tea that Vivian made for me gave me the energy to get back out there and do the chair study. I was away all day yesterday, or I would have gottne mine posted earlier. Can't wait to see the other posts too!

The process of making art as a group in such great locations is a lot of fun! This group is really special! Thanks for adding the candid camera shot. Your paintings make me think you were having a "Vincent" moment, nice brushwork.
