Claire Beadon Carnell's MOM

Sometimes we are lucky enough to visit our fellow bloggers and see a picture that comes out and says "please paint me"!   Some time ago, I visited Claire's blog and she had posted a picture of her Mom....When a Mom passes away, part of us die with them..so needless to say, I needed to paint this portrait of her beautiful Mom for her....Claire, I hope you like this painting.
For those who have never visited Claire, you can find her lovely work on http://clairebcarnell.blogspot.com ....She does beautiful work ...many of her landscapes are from her hometown State of Pennsylvania.

    2. Bonjour ma chère amie,

      C'est fou ! Lorsque je suis entrée dans ton blog aujourd'hui, en poussant la porte, j'ai fait oh!...
      Oui, car ce visage ne m'était pas inconnu et qu'étant une des admiratrices de Claire, j'ai mis son nom sur ce très joli portrait.
      En te lisant, je n'étais pas loin de la vérité.
      Sa maman aussi était très belle. Je suis navrée d'apprendre que Claire n'a plus sa maman.
      Quel bel hommage que tu lui fais avec cette oeuvre magnifique ! Je suis certaine qu'elle doit apprécier à sa juste hauteur.

      Je t'embrasse affectueusement sans oublier cette grande artiste qu'est Claire.
