Valentine Carnations

My husband always gives me carnations for special occasions; today was no exception! It is our tradition and I love the fact that he doesn't give me roses. We are a pair of practical minded souls and the price of roses makes me cringe. I'm happy with my carnations and am glad that he and I almost always see the world in the same way. Today's 6x8 inch oil painting is a few blooms from a lovely boquet. This painting is for sale along with some of my other small floral paintings in the Small Impressions Gallery at Etsy.

I like carnations better than roses too. Not only is the price too high but carnations last so much longer than roses; especially when they are painted carnations! Beautiful.

These are beautiful beyond words. I like carnations, too, and red is one of my favorite colors. You painted these with a lot of love. Thanks for sharing them with others.

Great job! I love everything about this one, Nancy.

Thanks to all of you for the kind words. I'm not usually a painter of flowers, but dip my brush into it only once in a while. It is good to hear my efforts turned out well.
