Carnations, good wine, and sunbeams is the perfect painting for those dreaming of a holiday afternoon, spent in the romantic countryside of France. This vintage still-life is painted in warm tones of red, pink and orange, and depicts a bottle of wine and two glasses, lit up by the beams of the afternoon sun.
Many people know that wine is very important in French culture – the countryside is renowned for its abundance of vineyards, out of which some of the most worldwide-appraised wines come from. There is something very romantic about the idea of a holiday in the French countryside, enjoying a glass of authentic French wine with your loved one while waiting for the sunset.
The entire painting is painted in soft, dark tones as well as lighter tones, meant to illustrate the rays of a sun about to set on a perfect, relaxing afternoon. The central element of this painting is definitely the red wine bottle, sitting on a table next to two full glasses, waiting to be savored. The glasses and bottle sit in the shadow of the carnations, flowers found often in the French countryside. Their lovely pink adds a vintage feel to this painting, alongside the white, ornate tablecloth underneath the wine.
This vintage painting by numbers evokes the charm of a summer spent in the French countryside, surrounded by the perfume of carnations and enjoying a good, authentic French wine. All the soft colors bring this painting to life and give it that vintage, rustic feel that we all crave.

I have done this painting of my French teachers son as a gift from her husband. He saw the first personal painting by numbers I did last year of my friends son and asked if I would do one for them. I am very pleased with the result.
