An Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Magic Lilies'
Plein Air
8 x 10

I have always loved these flowers that seem to magically pop
up from the ground in August each year.  They are
called 'Magic Lilies', or 'Surprise Lilies', and are
such a joy to find in the late summer garden.  I really
enjoyed painting these today in my friend Pat's garden
(and also the delicious lunch she made for us)!

My gear on site this morning...

Pat working on her painting.  Our umbrellas really came in handy
when that hot sun popped out.  If you look closely you can
see two batches of 'magic lilies' among the black-eyed susans.

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.
