An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'A Hint of Spring'
Oil on Panel
8 x 16

Two weeks ago I found this wonderful hyacinth
bulb starter, shich was supposed to have a blue hyacinth.
  I took it home and checked it each day to see how
much it had grown.  As soon as the bloom started to
appear, I knew it was going to be pink - but I didn't
mind a bit!  I also realized that I was going to have 
to find some time during the Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days
Challenge to paint this.  I hope that it brings a 
Hint of Spring to you when you look at it.

If you would like to see more of my work,

Makes me look forward to my tulip and daffodil bed springing to life in a couple of months. Nice work. I love it.

I love this painting! The pinks are beautiful. What a lovely warm painting, just what we need on a cold day. I'm ready for warmer spring temperatures.

I saw them in the store awhile ago, should have gotten one, as I bet it brings a fresh breath of spring inside. The color of this one is so nice - that background is such a complement. Everything about it is wonderful!!

Thank you, Nan. I love that these bring Spring into my house early. I even went back and got one for my daughter!
