BIRDHOUSE AND AZALEAS By Cecelia Lyden

oil/stretched canvas
11x14
www.cecelialyden

Another gray day, but not raining; so I decided to travel to my neighbor's yard to catch some beautiful azalea color before the wet weather washed it all away. I set up the composition, laid in the values [very flat with no sunshine to create shadows], colors and large and small shapes and finished the details indoors while it rained outdoors.

A BIT OF GIVERNEY By Cecelia Lyden


oil/stretched canvas
12x12

This is "Bit of Giverney". How amazed I was at the size of Monet's famous gardens. Most of my impression of them came from his iconic painting of the Japanese footbrige [seen in the background]. I did this painting from one of the many, many photos I took on our tour there last year. 
I've just completed painting two beautiful yards this spring-One I travelled across the ocean to another country to paint-the other I travelled across my lawn to my neighbors' yard.

On our first night in Paris, we were up on the second
floor of the Eiffel Tower watching the sunset turn the
city incredible shades of rose and blue and violet.  It was
a magical sight, and brought tears to our eyes.  We
suddenly realized that we were actually in France...
and we were in Paris!

Staircase To The 2nd Floor by Julie Riker

12x9 oil
Plein Air Magazine Award
Wayne Plein Air 2016

I was honored to be included among 32 talented artists selected to participate in Wayne Plein Air last week.

We had 5 days to create paintings within 20 miles of Wayne, PA.  It was fun exploring the area, rich with historical buildings, farms, and urban areas...I even ventured into Philadelphia.
All week the weather was gray and a bit drizzly.  I was frustrated with the flat light.  On the last day the sun finally came out and I painted this piece. 

I was thrilled that judge T. Allen Lawson chose this painting for the Plein Air Magazine Award.

This and ALL of the paintings from the week are on exhibit at the Wayne Art Center through June 25.

An Older work Re-visited, Original Oil Painting by Rebecca Jennings

"Energy Lake, #2"
11" x 14"
 Oil on Canvas panel

The original painting was done in 2012 and I had never been quite sure if it was finished or not. I decided to try adding more life to it, hence the boat with fisher persons and a bit more reflections in the water. I also softened the tree line at the top right and defined the geese flying across the lake a bit more. I am more content with it now. When my grand-daughter visiting from New Jersey saw it, she absolutely loved it, so it is going to her home as soon as it is dry and can be varnished.

Thanks for viewing!

8" x 16"
Oil on stretched canvas
Detail...

I painted this in April and must have gotten side-tracked and forgot to post it. We were blessed with beautiful weather for April and the Red-winged blackbird was back at the pond. It made me so happy I had to paint something to express my joy!
 I hope you like it!

HOME ON FRONT STREET, WEST FAIRVIEW By Cecelia Lyden

oil/stretched canvas
8x10
www.cecelialyden.com

Rainy days present opportunities to paint indoors.I spotted this "collection" of houses and telephone poles on Front St. in West Fairview. Crazy how I hate poles and wires despoiling and clogging up beautiful landscapes and towns, but I love them in paintings. The poles help to define size and distance through linear and atmospheric perspective. The telephone lines lead your eye around the painting and unify the objects in the composition. Mostly I love the familiarity they bring to paintings. With me, familiarity means comfort.
