100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'

'Lavender Blue'
Oil 5 x 7

Day 29

One of the prettiest scents in my garden,
I can never just walk by the lavender without
touching the flowers to get that scent on my
hands. Lavender was always present in the
gardens of my mother and my grandmother, so
the tradition lives on.

If you would like to see to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

This has lovely texture and shows a lot of depth.

This one is great. I love all the values of violet against the greens.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you for your comments, Barbara and Pam.

Angela Elledge said...

Perhaps it's the lavender so close in the foreground that gives this little painting a big painting feeling. Very, very nice, Claire!

Pat Koscienski said...

Beautiful, Claire. I, too, love the variety of violet hues against that dark background.

Gorgeous, Claire. I must admit, I too am drawn to the lavender. So pretty and it smells divine!

Kat Farmer said...

this is just the most beautiful blue, I can almost smell the perfume from here. We have lavender flowering at the mo in our garden too, it's one of those flowers that is irresistable to walk past without pausing to inhale it's glorious scent. Lovely painting, well done...
