WHAT'S ON MY EASEL TODAY
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell


After posting a new painting every day in the month of January,
I started to feel as though I was really falling behind in February!
Actually, I have been working on some new pieces that I hope to
exhibit some time in this new year.  Above is a painting of some
water lilies that are on my easel right now, with a detail
of the painting below.  I am getting pretty close to the 'watery'
look I want to achieve...




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.

Awesome piece Claire!! What don't you paint?

Debra Bryant said...

This is lovely Claire. I always admire artists who can capture water AND flowers. I struggle with flowers, but I still paint them. :)

Pattie Wall said...

Ahh - a big one - and going to be gorgeous, it is already! Can't wait to see it finished..but no hurry, nice to be able to take a little more time, eh?

Dana Cooper said...

I think this is my new favorite of yours Claire...lovely!

Darla McDowell said...

Very pretty, Claire! Your colors and composition are so lovely, and you have definitely captured the watery feel. Looking forward to seeing more!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks, Sandy! I do like to paint different things :)

Thanks so much Debra - I have really enjoyed playing in the paint here, and hope it will eventually get to where I want it to be!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

I agree, Pattie - I have been enjoying painting on this the past couple of days. Not so hyper-speed, and I am loving pushing the paint around the canvas at a more thoughtful pace!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so very much, Dana - that is quite a compliment coming from you!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

I really appreciate your kind comments, Darla! It is fun to see what everyone has been doing since the challenge ended!

I can't see water lilies without thinking of Monet, of course. Love the look of the water and the green leaves on it are just gorgeous!

Thanks, Sherry. Hoping to get a better picture now that it is finished!

Thanks so much, Hilda. I will try to get to my comments sooner - it's just been a crazy week.
