"Christ Chapel, Gettysburg College", oil, 9" x 12"

This is a plein air piece that I painted during the 2009 Gettysburg Festival. It is Christ Chapel on the campus of Gettysburg College. I was drawn by the sunlight shining from behind the church, sparkling on the steeple, and dancing on the tree tips. Painting outside, directly from observation, and racing against the changing light is like no other feeling.


  1. What a wonderful glow of light on the steeple. This is gorgeous, Lyn.

  2. Wow, what a challenge you took on, Lyn. And, very well done. You do great with buildings.

  3. The steeple is what really inspired this painting - and the building was quite a challenge to do in such a short time.
