LIGHT BEYOND THE FOREST an Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum

This painting is from a photograph that I took at Naylor Observatory in Lewisberry in August.  Our grandson was visiting us and we took him there to observe the stars.  They are open to the public on Sunday nights in the summer, weather permitting.  It was a beautiful evening and it was approaching sunset when we arrived.  You could see the light from the sunset through these beautiful trees on their property and when I looked at my photo there was an aqua/blue tint to the leaves and branches of the trees nearest to the inside edges.  I bumped up the color a little to make it more dramatic.  This painting is for sale and will be at Carlisle Arts Learning Center  for their members show "Going Green".  The opening reception is Friday February 13 at 6:30. This exhibit runs from February 13 through March 14.
