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 enjoy everyday colors kicked up a notch, you will appreciate my colorful style :-)

Becoming a Watercolor artist was a slow evolution that blossomed after I retired from my obstetrical nursing career. I stumbled upon, and joined, a small social painting group that met once a week.
Pretty soon, friends and family were asking for my paintings! I was inspired to sell my art online. I paint purely for enjoyment and selling my art is icing on the cake.
I'm thrilled that my 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 different 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!

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 only include a certificate for gift giving presentation or if the buyer requests one in the "note to seller" 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
