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!

This painting brightened my Valentine's Day when I saw it on facebook. It is lovely. We could have done celebration paintings for Mardi Gras also! There is still time actually!!
