An Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Newville Farm Quilt'
Oil Plein Air
(View from the Clearing 10/14/2012)
10 x 20

Perhaps one of my favorite places up by our cabin
is this clearing that displays an amazingl vista of the farmland
and Blue Mountain Ridge below(this is only a small portion of
 what is visible).  We have put a picnic
table there where we can sit and absorb the view.  While
I was painting, there were Redtail hawks circling in the sky
and screeching out their distinctive call.  They floated on the
air currents, and like myself, just enjoyed the quiet beauty of the day.

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Claire, I love the wide perspective and deep colors of your painting. How great that you have access to such a view; it's mind expanding to see distances! Wonderful painting.

What a SPECTACULAR view! I love the title, so appropriate. Great colors. It sounds like your cabin is a perfect artists refuge.
