'Song of Spring'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Song of Spring'
© Claire Beadon Carnell
Oil on linen panel
14 x 11

This painting is came about from my longing
for Spring this year, and also a love for these
white and coral 'Salome' daffodils that I
grow in my front flower bed.  When I first planted
the bulbs for these, I could not wait until they
bloomed...and was so disappointed when they
did because they had a yellow center instead
of the beautiful coral color.  My disappointment 
turned to happiness after a few days when I
saw that yellow center start to turn.  The 
garden is always such a magical place!

This is an outstanding still life, Claire! I love that its mostly white with just that bit of color in the middle of the flower. Beautiful reflections in the vase as well! Love it!.....

The flowers are so beautiful, Claire!! I love the white eyelet cloth too. A beautiful vision in white all the way around except for those brilliant suns in the center of the daffs!

This post is such a reminder that we should wait and be patient, for nature will surprise us when we least expect it! I love this one - and YES I am ready for some 'bulb' activity!
