An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'A Very Special Commission'
Oil on linen panel
6 x 12

A little while ago, my grandson approached me with
a very serious look on his face, and he asked me
if I would so something for him.  He wanted me to
paint three of his favorite stuffed dogs.  I asked
the important questions - what color background,
should all the puppies be on one canvas, or 
did he want an individual canvas for each one. 

Payment will be made in hugs and kisses...
my favorite currency.

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.

You ar right Claire, this is the MOST special kind of commission and one that will always be treasured!

Oh, Claire, this has to be one of the highest honors a grammy could get. He has to be tickled. As, I'm sure you are, too. He will always remember those 3 stuffed animals for a life time, but also his loving grammy.

That's wonderful. What a treasure - grandma, grandson, stuffed dogs and painting - each of them.

What a special kind of Grandma gift to a grandchild. I love the painting and bet he will cherish it forever! It's so freeing to paint for others, just 'because'...collect on that payment as often as you can!
