Rockville Bridge with Train, oil, 9 x 12

Just to show that I have been painting this season, I am posting two in one day. Last week I finished up this painting that I started last year. I rarely complete the plein air paintings in one session - although sometimes it does all come together, so I am thrilled when I can go back out - even a year later. We painted at Ft. Hunter Mansion and were also asked to demonstrate that day for a group of youth who were kayaking and canoeing on the Susquehanna. They stopped there for lunch and joined us in a paint-out of their own, after a brief demonstration by the president of our group, Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters. Turned out that the Harrisburg Camera Club showed up as well and took photos. Saw my picture on PennLive, the Patriot News website.


  1. this painting is wonderful.
    the light is awesome and i like the motif.
    well done - really like it.

  2. Congratulations Lyn on the recognition in Penn Live.

  3. Great painting Lyn and a peaceful scene. I rarely finish a plein air piece at the site either. I make sure I take a photo of the same place I am painting so I have a reference when I finish in my studio.
