an Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Coral Carnation'
6 x 6

  I bought a bunch of carnations just to bring some
bright color into the house during the dreary winter
months.  They lasted for weeks, and gave me ample
opportunity to paint and photograph each of
the different colors in the bunch! 

I painted this particular
carnation to celebrate Valentine's Day, so it fit
perfectly with this month's DPP Challenge blog's
focus on 'Celebrations'.   Here's hoping that every one
of your days is a reason to celebrate!

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.

February 2012 DPP Challenge
Hosted by Christine Marx

I am so happy to host this month's Daily Painters of Pennsylvania Challenge. I have been itching to paint some type of dessert. I have attached a photo of something delicious that we had at a restaurant in North Carolina 8 months ago when were seeing my nephew off to be deployed to Afghanistan. I am happy to report he is coming home today!! So in celebration of celebrations and family and desserts (because in my house they all go hand in hand) I'd love to see what the other Daily Painters come up with. It doesn't have to be this dessert - just something that has to do with celebrations!
