"COUNTRY GARDEN" An Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum
This painting was done day 2 of the Plein Air Camp Hill Festival. A lovely couple, Linda and Dave, allowed me to paint in their gardens. They live in an old Victorian house on the outskirts of Mechanicsburg and have spent many years cultivating and planting their gardens. They love the primitive country look and their home and gardens reflect that. This was an old outhouse that they converted into a storage shed. This was the day that there was a deluge of rain in the afternoon. Fortunately I was able to escape to their screened in sun porch to continue my painting. I had to finish it at home the next morning as we had a reception for Sponsors and Artists at the Civic Club in Harrisburg Wednesday night.
