'Still Waters'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

Two years ago, I got the opportunity to go
up to Nancy and Eric Olson's farm in Port Royal
to paint their fields of sunflowers.  While I
was there I walked around and got some
photographs, and this is one of the amazing
views I found that I wanted to paint.
I even liked the little bit of algae in the water
that created breaks in the stillness.

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Such a beautiful scene and beautiful painting, Claire. It was kind of interesting to see you use the word "stillness" in your writing as I had just finished reading the quote by Mother Theresa in the upper right corner of your blog. Perfectly fitting.

Thank you, Susan - that was definitely what made me want to paint this scene.

Thank you, Marie! I will feel I have succeeded if the viewer feels the stillness.
