An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Floating Along'
Oil on Canvas
24 x 30

Several years ago we were in Maine with my daughter and
her family, staying at a wonderful cabin right along the 'pond'.
I had never been kayaking before, but my daughter and I
decided to take a trip along the 'Serpentine' - a four mile
round trip.  It was incredible to be at water level, observing
the flora and fauna, and was an amazing experience.

This painting is 95% from memories of our journey...the
soft summer breeze, floating along side the gorgeous water lilies, the
amazing blues and greens of the water, and the wonderful,
unforgettable time I had with my daughter.

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

Doing this from memory has given this a gorgeous dreamy quality. I too really enjoy kayaking! Glad this trip made such a lovely memory for you.

I shared this with one of my students...
She really loved it!
It reminded her of a MONET painting
that she has in her office.

The placement and balance of the white flowers is so powerful. Love it!
