This was one of the paintings I did during the week of the Camp Hill Plein Air Festival.
I did this in two plein air sessions.
Most people driving along Market Street have noticed this flower stand
along the side of the road. It is always a burst of color in any
season, with pumpkins and mums in the fall, Christmas trees and wreaths
in December, bulb flowers in spring, and now in summer is filled with
gorgeous hanging planters. It beckoned to be painted.
Camp Hill Plein Air is over and now I am anticipating the opening reception for my exhibit.
Here is a virtual postcard to promote my show. It offers a sneak
peek at some of the paintings currently on exhibit in Harrisburg. There
is a reception this Friday evening from 6-9 and everyone is invited to
Gallery @ Second is located on 2nd Street next to the Firehouse
Restaurant and is open Thursday and Friday 4:30-8:00, Saturday
10:00-8:00, and Sunday 12:00-4:00. If those times are not convenient
please let me know and I will arrange a private showing with the gallery
So happy to share the news that "Riverbend" won the Purchase Award at the Camp Hill Plein Air Festival. The purchaser will be donating the painting to the Fredrickson Library where it will become part of their collection for anyone to view.
