"Melody of Forest", pastel by Tatiana Myers.

"Melody of Forest", 10 x 8", Pastel.

Another one of my Plein Air pastels, painted during our trip to Vermont
earlier this summer. This was the last day of this painting trip
(and gorgeous Day it was!). We all worked on and around of beautiful property
what belong to Mark and Claudia Seymour, who generously offered
this opportunity to our group of Pastelists leaded by Richard McKinley.
We all had wonderful time there. Great weather. Great views. Great art.
Much to remember.

"Still Standing", Pastel, T.K.Myers


"Still Standing", 7 x 5", pastel.

Last Friday my husband took me to the company picnic what they had in Middletown. 
They trying to get together every summer and have something of this sort.
We don't always go, but this will be last time, as next summer Jim is retiring, so we went.
It was long day mostly filled with eating, therefore I had to entertain myself and did
this small painting. I liked the high contrast of light and shadows and whole idea
about the victory of life -young tree growing in the middle of old stumps.
Here is my painting.

Letort Falls

It was a beautiful day to paint at Letort Falls. I finished the trees at home. Personally, I think there should be more varied color in the rocks. It is 11 x 14, oil on canvas. Would love to go back someday.

Except for the bugs, the Letort Falls in Carlisle paintout with the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters was wonderful.  It was a beautiful summer day with sunlight on the waterfall.  I actually got 2 paintings.

LETORT FALLS By Cecelia Lyden

I painted for four hours today, but remained cool and comfortable in the shade by the falls. This is my third painting of the falls. It is always a fun experience painting that water splashing down and over the rocks. Eight of us were there and everyone created an exciting, animated painting.

"LETORT FALLS IN AUGUST" An Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum


 
A beautiful day for a paint out at Letort Falls. Eight of our Plein Air group were there.  You hardly noticed that that temps were in the 90's in the cool shade of the trees.  The falls were soothing with the rushing sound of the water.  The bugs were a little tenacious though. Lots of bug spray needed!  I have never been there and I can see why it is such a popular spot.  Thank you Cecelia for arranging yet another great paint out!

"Keystone National Work on Paper".




Sometime ago I believe I already posted this little painting,
however I would like to share it again, as part of upcoming
"Keystone-National Work on Paper" exhibition.
I'm truly honored to have this little (8 x 10") gem juried in,
because of its Plein Air nature. Finally I'm starting to feel
that my Plein Air paintings starting catch up to my studio works,
or maybe even exceed those studio pieces.
Indeed out of my two submissions for "Keystone" Plein Air piece
took over my other studio piece.. 
Thank You to the Juror Laurin McCracken for
accepting "Spring House" into this beautiful show.
Looking forward to see all the art works!

"CONESTOGA HOUSE GARDENS" An Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum


On July 23rd several members of our group painted at the Conestoga House.  What an incredibly beautiful property! You could spend weeks painting there.  I was able to get a good start on this painting but there was warnings for a nasty thunder storm and as it got darker I had to leave.  Driving home I hit a wall of water that made it very difficult to see. But luckily it did not last long.  We had one of our Grandsons visiting last week. We kept quite busy with activities and trips.  What a joy he was, but not much time for painting. I finally was able to finish this painting today.

CREPE MYRTLE BY THE SEVERN, 16x12, oil, by Sharon Benner

I painted this looking up the shore line along the Severn River.  The day was mostly overcast with mild temperatures.  I really enjoyed standing alongside the river and listening to the waves lap at the shore.  I used my pallet knife to create the rich colors with a heavy impasto effect.  See more at www.sharonbenner.com

It was a breezy, comfortable day on the Chesapeake Bay on Tuesday. The sky was very evenly light, no bright sunshine and no moving clouds, changing the light-a pleasant, peaceful plein air experience.

 I found a inviting scene from Ceccila's daughters backyard overlooking the bay in Annapolis, MD.What a beautiful day. Many Thanks to Cecelia and her daughter for the invitation.
