"Arbor at Poole Forge" by Beth Bathe

"Arbor at Pooles Forge", en plein air, 12 x 16 oil on canvas
It was a beautiful weekend in PA! Cooler temperatures meant time to paint outdoors. This is a stone cottage at Pooles Forge, in Narvon PA, It dates to the early 1800's. the garden beside the house was full of wonderful perennials. I especially loved the large Canna lilies.

Such a nice plein air painting-strong composition and wondeful loose brushwork.

This is a wonderful painting. I love the loose treatment of the stone on the cottage and the roof against the sky. The treatment of the flowers again loose, but so beautiful. Love it!
