Daily Painters of Pennsylvania
May 2012 Challenge Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'A Mother's Love'
Oil on Canvas
10 x 8

I thought this picture really expressed a mother's love 
for her baby.  Thanks to Patricia Griffin for providing
such an inspiring project for this month's DPP Challenge!
Hope that everyone is having a very happy
Memorial Day weekend. Both my father and my
father-in-law were decorated WWII veterans, and I
have always been thankful for all of the people who
protect and serve our country so selflessly so that
we can live in freedom.

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 need to know how fond I am of giraffes - especially in paintings. This one is too special! I love the feeling I get from it. Let us remember all that those in the service in other parts of the world ~ do for us at home.

This is a beautiful rendition Claire, I made it with elephants and you made it with giraffes.. but the sentiment behind is the same, isnt it!

Giraffes have always been one of my favorite animals with those long eyelashes, big brown eyes, and curly tongues of theirs. Lovely sentiments too!
