'Loving Lilacs'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Loving Lilacs'
© Claire Beadon Carnell
Oil on Stretched Canvas
10 x 20
This time of year, especially after a long and harsh
winter, I find myself walking along the edge of our
yard to where I have planted a border of lilacs.
This is my favorite part of the yard, and I love
that I have lilac bushes that come from starts
that were from both my mother and my mother-in-law's
lilac bushes.  It's as if both of them are standing with
me beside those lilacs, basking
in the warm sunlight and breathing in that
luxurious lilac scent.

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

A beautiful painting of my favorite of all the flowers (thanks to their magnificent scent). Have they bloomed already in your neck of the words, Claire?
