An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'August Fields'

Oil on Linen Panel
18 x 24

This painting depicts one of my absolute favorite farms, which is
close to where I live.  When I drive by here, I often have to 
pull over just to admire the contours of the land, and
the way one hill slopes into another. I hope that you get
the warm feel of the sun that I was attempting to paint, 
especially today with the cold winter wind blowing!

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

What a beauty! To be painting so large must be wonderful. This one is like I am there pulled over on the side of the road taking it all in. Just a lovely view!
Hope your snow is not too deep..and if it is, keep painting!

Reminds me of home. Some areas of Kentucky are like that...such beautiful scenery.

This is really a lovely spot and I have the feeling I am there because it is painted so well. I am curious about how long it took you to paint that tree?

A beautiful place and I can see why an artist would be inspired to pull over just to take it all in. A beautiful painting, Claire.

Thanks, Pattie, and yes - although I love to do the smaller paintings it is nice to 'stretch out' on a larger canvas!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Debra, thank you - it's a beautiful country we live in, that's for sure.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Julie. That's a difficult question...I ma going to guess that it probably took me around three hours total. There were some areas that would have to dry before I could work again.

Sherry, you always write the most lovely comments...thank you!

Thanks for the reply Claire. I just read on Hilda's blog that your husband was involved in a car accident and suffered whiplash. A nasty thing that so I hope he heals okay. It can last for years.
Sending my best.
