MORNING SHADOWS IN SIEBERT PARK
oil/steteched canvas

We had a full week of the most beautiful weather for the Camp Hill Plein Air Event- plenty of sunshine, puffy clouds, great light and shadows and cool temperatures. Recovering from pneumonia, I was only able to take advantage of 3 half days for painting, but was happy to be able to participate at all. Camp Hill has many interesting, as well as picturesque alleys behind many of their houses. The borough park is also a wonderful place to paint with its huge variety of trees and their cast shadows and its "moving" hilly terrain.

I am so happy you are feeling better and that you made it out as often as you did. It is always great to see you Cecelia!

Hope you are feeling better. This explains your comments at Negley Park. Glad you could enjoy the event as much as possilble. Hope to see you soon in the great out doors.

I agree with Julie - and it was so nice to see you at last night's award reception as well! These are two very lovely paintings - I especially like the one with the purple clematis on the fence. Your work always has such a wonderful sense of light, Cecelia.
