'Summer Music'
An Original Oil Painting

A few years ago I got tickets to the July
Gettysburg Battlefield re-enactment celebration
for my husband's birthday.  We were actually watching
a re-enactment of one of the battles when I turned
my head and saw these two women (and the little girl)
re-enactors coming up over a hill.  It was one of those times
where I was so grateful to have camera in hand!

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

This beautiful painting reminds me of how I "imagine" my summer visits to the battlefield ... humming bees, singing birds, the smell of sun-warmed fields. The reality somehow includes biting flies, tics, and sunburn. And yet, every year I start out imagining something akin to the feeling you've captured here. I love it!

I'm sure you knew right away that you would paint this this scene that you captured with your camera. I know the feeling when the right scene is there and you just can't wait to recreate it. It is beautiful!

You've got such a nice touch; the figures in the painting are lovely.
