OFF THE GRID FOR AWHILE
Claire Beadon Carnell
Original Oil Paintings

Hello my blog friends!  I have not been posting lately, and have missed all of you.  About three weeks ago I had to have some surgery on the vertebrae in my neck, and I have been in the process of recovering.  Just yesterday I was able to paint again for the first time in four weeks, and it was such a pleasure.

I hope to have some things to post soon, and look forward to catching up with everyone to see what you all have been working on.

Here's a glimpse of the start of an underpainting for a new painting that I just started this afternoon...


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.

I'm so sorry to hear about your surgery but so happy to hear you're feeling better...you've been missed.
This painting already looks wonderful and I look forward to seeing it finished! Feel better, Claire!!!

Claire, I too am sorry to hear about your neck surgery and hope that you haven't been in too much pain. And found the use of ice to be the best pain reliever too. Anyway, love where your latest piece is going and cannot wait to see it finished!

I didn't realize about the surgery - I wish you a speedy recovery and lots of painting!

What a bummer. Anything which takes you away from your painting can be difficult. You must have endured quite a bit of pain, The neck moves naturally all the time. Hope that is all over now and you can get right back into the swing of your painting routine.

DUH! I forgot to comment on your painting. Great start and will watch out for the completed painting.

Please take care well Claire, I know how is it since I was in a similar position. Bounce back to painting, slowly with out straining much. Look forward to your posts.

Thank you, Hilda! I had to stop work on this to work on a commission - but can't wait to get back to it.

Thank you , Sherry - so nice to hear from you. I have been using a bag of frozen peas quite a bit, and it does help!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Marla.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Julie, Thank you! I have been able to paint a little bit more each day, but it is a slow process.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

I am sure that you understand what this involves, Padmaja - and I appreciate your support. I just need to be patient.

Thank you, Pat. I sent you an email last night. Hope you got it - with my crazy yahoo mail server I never know.
