Thank you so much for the beautiful custom water color! The painting of my grandmothers house looks exactly like my photo- maybe better! The artist was professional and got back to me so quickly! I know my mom will love her Mother’s Day gift!

Absolutely fantastic representation of our favorite honeymoon spot in Ireland. She was so wonderful discussing options and is a true talent and professional. If you’re looking for a landscape, this is the best!

I ordered a painting for a bridal shower. It was the perfect gift and the bride LOVED it! It turned out beautiful. Carlin was wonderful to work with; got it done quickly and made excellent recommendations for framing etc. Her work and customer service were both fantastic.

About

Original Watercolor Paintings by Carlin Blahnik

Thank you for your interest in my CarlinArtWatercolor shop!
If you are looking for Original paintings with vivid translucent color, you came to the right shop :-)

Becoming a Watercolor artist was a slow evolution that blossomed after I retired from my obstetrical nursing career. That is when I started painting weekly with a paint group. When friends and family enthusiastically collected my artwork I was inspired to sell my art online.
I'm thrilled that my original watercolors paintings are being enjoyed in homes and offices around the world!
It is an honor and a great gift to have such amazing support and fan following.
My appreciation is without end.
Thank you,
Carlin

    I love the great outdoors, travel and experiencing cultures. I'm married to my college sweetheart and fortunate to have my 2 sons and daughter-in-law live close enough to visit often. I hope you enjoy my shop!

Framing Watercolor Paintings

Your painting arrives unframed so you can frame it your way.

To keep framing costs down for my clients, my watercolors are sized to fit standard ready-made frames in the USA.

If you have a special sized frame that you wish to use, I can customize a painting to fit.

Watercolors are displayed matted and framed under glass to protect from damage.
Matting provides air space between the artwork and the glass to help prevent moisture contact with the art.
Select "archival acid free" materials for your original fine art.

For a full selection of mat colors and styles, you can have a mat inexpensively custom cut to fit a ready-made frame.

If you prefer no matting, frame spacers are available at your local framing store.

Enjoy !

Shipping

Paintings ship USPS with tracking.
Each painting is protected in a clear removable sleeve.
Smaller sizes are mailed in a 9x12 stay-flat envelope.
Larger sizes are rolled in a 25x6x6 mailing tube.

Certificate of Authenticity

A certificate of authenticity is not needed for Original paintings and has no value.
Packaging is pared down to minimize my carbon footprint.
I do include a certificate for gift giving presentation and you may also request one by messaging me when you place your order.

Paint and Paper Quality

Quality First & Always !
With proper handling, my watercolor paintings will last generations.
All materials, (pens, pencils, tape, paper, paint) are acid free archival quality.

Paper Canvas: 100% cotton fiber acid-free, pH-neutral will not yellow with age.
I use Arches or Fabriano Artistico with a minimum of 300g/ 140lb weight.

Paint: I select pigments with high lightfast ratings so colors won't fade.
To achieve my vivid colors, I select from quality brands such as Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor, Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colour, Holbein, LUKAS Aquarell 1862 and others.

Works in progress are handled minimally.
Finished pieces are immediately enclosed in archival clear envelopes.
Guaranteed Professional Quality
