'Carpet of Blue'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell


 
'Carpet of Blue'

Oil on Stretched Canvas
16 x 12
 
My daughter, granddaughter Stevie and I were shopping
at the Olde Susquehanna House (in Carlisle, PA)  about a week ago.
As we were leaving, my daughter spotted this amazing wooded
area behind the store's parking lot that was loaded with
blue scilla - one of my favorite Spring flowers.
The day was slightly overcast, but the blue was vibrant!

Happy Earth Day. Chasing Rainbows. Shelby Pizzarro

Chasing Rainbows. ATC
Happy Earth Day! Over a billion people will share in celebration today, the forty-fourth anniversary of the annual day of awareness and action. And yes, this unabashed Tree-Hugger will be celebrating!

There is no question that we all have a role to play in taking care of the Earth. If we even make a small change, each one of us together can bring great transformations.

"Chasing Rainbows" is an Artist Trading Card. The substrate for the card is illustration board. Layered on the card is a combination of different coloured paint samples, handmade paper, joss paper, and a wrapper from a Hershey's Kiss. The quote is cut from an old dictionary. I finished the card by adding a decorative leaf.

But aren't we collage and mixed-media artists living the spirit of Earth Day every time we produce our work? Aren't we staying true to our Muse when we follow the path of nature and inspiration?

Who could not be inspired by all the magical wonders the Earth has to offer? Just think of what life would be like without the vastness of space, the infinite variety of colour presented to us with each sunrise and sunset, the boundless texture and form of soil, the nurturing sensation of rain...giving way to rainbows, when we are fortunate enough to see them.

We mixed media artists do chase our own rainbows in our own way....our mantra "reuse and recycle". And haven't the resulting finished art been incredible!

May you have a wonderful, inspiring Earth Day...each and every day!

At this rate I will never finish creating my new web site as when I go through different periods of my art work I get the urge to create another in the series.  So far I have made several more Pure Color pieces, 3 new stamps, and revised several poster collages.  I am having so much fun that I feel guilty.  Now what's that all about?

"Dylan and his Water Gun" Acrylic painting by Charlotte Yealey

8x11
Acrylic
My grandson was very serious about his water gun when he was little. I just had to capture that look.
He is now 10 years old and very serious about racing and football.

"Pas de deux", pastel, Tatiana Myers.

"Pas de deux", 10 x 8", WC & Pastel.

Just off my easel, small mixed-media work (watercolor/pastel)
depicting two red poppies, sign of summer...
With sort of spring we having this year I miss worm days
and constantly painting something bright and summer-like.
This work is available at DPW auction.


FORSYTHIA 2011


Forsythia 2011
6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

I have been busy creating a new web site for the past two weeks, so have not been painting, but last year's Forsythia painting fits the moment perfectly.

I love Forsythia.  It is for me the real messenger of spring as it is so jolly in its thrusting glory.  I hold in deepest disregard those who turn their Forsythia bushes into crippled balls.

"Future Journey", Pastel, Tatiana Myers.

"Future Journey", Pastel, 9x12"

I normally paint places where I went.. unless those are places where I want to go,
but never (yet) had a chance to do it. "Future Journey" is one of those paintings. 
I'm trying to arrange my pastel pallet for our upcoming painting trip to Mexico
 what will be in January 2015.
Whole event is organized and sponsored by Pastel Society of America,
and just guess who is the leading the pack?.. Naturally once again
it will be my favorite Pastel-Guru, Richard McKinley.
I'm lucky to work under his supervision for 4 years now and this summer we meet again 
in Vermont... Those sessions make HUGE difference on my progress as a painter...
Hardly can wait till summer... And I guess now I have something,
what will make to be look forward to next winter too..

'Abandoned Homestead'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell


 
'Abandoned Homestead'
© Claire Beadon Carnell
Oil on Linen Panel
9 x 12
 
I found this old abandoned homestead while
my husband and I were meandering down our local
country roads looking for some good places
to paint.  This farm sat back off the road,
and almost all of the buildings were painted
this brownish-red, and all had been deserted.
It made me sad to think that such a lovely farm
had been abandoned, but I was glad to see that
someone was still farming the land.
