'Blue Crab'
An Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

Plein Air
8 x 8

This blue crab got washed ashore on the wet sand one 
cloudy morning in Cape Cod.  We had stopped to paint
at a little inlet, and were worried about the 
forecast of rain.  It wasn't rain that chased us away,
it was the rising tide that suddenly appeared two feet
away from where we were painting!

This painting will be on display at the 
Mechanicsburg Art Center in the
Recent Paintings from the Cape exhibit.
The opening reception is December 14,  
6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

I hope to see this in person and will see if I can stop by the Art Center. Your story makes me want to go out and paint. The unexpected visitors are always a joy!
