an Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Lavender Blue II'
10 x 8

Among all of the 'stuff' that resides in my studio is a 
small collection of old bottles I have collected over the
years.  They always make the neatest vases for those 
small bouquets of treasures from the garden - in this
case some late-blooming lavender.

If you would like 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.

I love the bottle and it goes so well with the lavender! There is a lovely depth in this created by the lace under the bottle and the background!

Claire, to me this is one of your best. I have been sitting here studying that blue glass and how beautifully you handled it and wondering just how you did it. I love the simple rustic beauty of this one!

Very pretty with the doily under the blue bottle. Love the lavender. I plan to visit Chadds Ford and area this spring. You get a real spring down there.

Thank you, Azra for your very kind comments!

Sherry - I am glad that you picked up on the rustic quality of this. This table and backdrop has been used in other paintings I have done, and is a favorite of mine for its simplicity.

Stephanie - Chadd's Ford is beautiful any time of the year. I hope that you have a wonderful visit!

Thank you, Padmaja! I was kicking myself a bit doing the lace 'holes'. Did try to keep it looser in the back of the doily.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks, Liz. I like all glass/dishes that are blue, or blue and white. I consider it quite an addiction!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Kim - thank you!

Thanks so much, Hilda. I love blue in dishes and in glassware, and just about everywhere for that matter!
