STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell
Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Fourteen

'Strawberries and Cream'
Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Fourteen
Oil on Panel
6 x 6

Currently for sale at 
Brath and Hughes Fine Arts Gallery, L.L.C.


This has been one of my favorite set-ups to
paint for this challenge.  I stopped at the grocery
store over the weekend and bought these strawberries
and some other fresh fruit for my 'models'...
one of these days I half expect the store security to 
approach me and ask why I am fondling their fruit...


All of my paintings for this Challenge will be done in a 6 x 6 format,
and my main goal while painting from life
is to LOOSEN UP and USE MORE PAINT...
something which will only benefit my work.

If you would like to join this Challenge, or just follow the
work of the participating artists, just visit her blog:

This is really nice, Claire. I think the soft gray background works really well to show off the strawberries. Glass bottle looks good, too!

Anne Winthrop Cordin said...

Your rendering of the glass is spot on!

Sue ChurchGrant said...

This is wonderful piece. I especially love the reflected red on the glas.s

Pattie Wall said...

Sweet subjects - those strawberries are pretty lucky to be imoralized in a Claire painting! Love the light colors and the little bottle is just too sweet.

Pattie Wall said...

I meant imortalized, not imoralized..duh - if that is what I wrote

Sandy Sandy said...

Nice and fresh!

Pat Koscienski said...

Great painting, Claire. You sure have managed to make me crave some strawberries and cream.

This is beautiful, Claire. I love the way you painted the glass bottle and the reflection in the glass of the strawberry...perfect piece!!

Maria Randolph said...

Claire, This is a wonderful setup! I love the strawberries and the way they reflect onto the glass.

Nancy Van Blaricom said...

Beautiful .. I love the glass. Perfect in every way.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Fay. I wanted a soft background for this so the strawberries would pop.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks, Anne - I had a lot of fun painting that bottle!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks very much, Sue. I love it when items pick up reflected color from other items in a still life.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks, Pattie - I kind of like 'imoralized' better, as it give my little still life some notoriety!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Sandy!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks, Pat! You really don't want this cream...it is the same cream that was painted in my first milk jug - yuck!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much for your comment, Hilda!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Maria. I loved painting the different colors that were reflecting off one another.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Nancy!

Red and white makes such a good combi!
Beautiful Claire!

Fondling their fruit? Oh you made me cackle aloud, Claire! I think this is so pretty and maybe it is the little cream bottle, but I am reminded of long ago times - think the old Dagwood and Blondie movies - when this was a breakfast staple.

Jane said...

Love this painting and the softness of all the colors that really set the strawberries off .

Susan said...
