ORANGE CANOE ALONG THE CONODOGUINET By Cecelia Lyden


oil/stretched canvas
9x12
 
SVPAP member, Liz Gallucci, invited us to paint in her backyard, which overlooks the Conodoguinet Creek and is filled with beautiful, old, large trees. Her yard and those of her neighbors are not fenced in and we were invited to paint in any of the yards. I spotted the orange canoe, pitched upward in front of ferns, with the creek in the background. Perfect subject matter for a painting.
Liz said she would have us back, probably in the fall when the leaves have turned. I heartily recommend that if any of you can, you try to come and paint in this beautiful setting.
