'A is for Apple'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

Oil on linen panel
12 x 9

I have had some vintage wooden typefaces for
years.  Some are large (6 inches high), and
some are much smaller, and I have always loved
them and wanted to do something with them.
When I got my apples this fall, the idea to
incorporate them into a painting with the
typeface came into mind, and here is the result.

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

What an inspired use of the typeface, Claire! I think this is beautiful and I love the rustic period feel of it too. And suddenly I'm wanting apple pie...

I see those in antique stores all the time and I think they're fabulous. Love how you used it in a painting!
