Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

Oil on stretched canvas
15 x 30

Last Thanksgiving, my daughter had set up these pears
in the windowsill to greet us.  They looked so interesting,
peering outside as if with longing.  Of course
my pear obsession button began to beep so I got
lots of pictures so that I could paint it some day...
I got such a smile on my face when I saw Taryn's
challenge idea for the DPP Challenge Blog this month,
because this fit the bill perfectly. 

Thank you, Taryn for the great challenge!

If you would like to see more of my work,

So soft and delicate Claire. Love the one leaning over as if putting its head on the neighbor's shoulder. Beautiful tones.

So soft and beautiful Claire! This may be my new favorite!

I just love the pears, Claire. You do them so beautifully and that gorgeous tree filled distant landscape, the multi-paned windows...So very lovely.

Also, I love all four of the mixed greens paintings from your workshop. Well done, ladies!!

Thank you, Azra - I do have a thing for those pears...

Thank you, Giselle - the pear that is leaning into the other pear is my favorite - the longing in its pose is what made me want to paint this!
