A happy pig stands in profile in a sunny pasture. Daisies dot the foreground while planted rows snake up the hills in the distance. "Daisy Pig was painted with a base coat of red that shows here and there in the painting," explains Carolyn. "A flat brush was used to scumble and drag paint to create texture." Carolyn says she used a Grant Wood-inspired style for the surroundings to round out this playful scene.
Carolyn’s subjects are inspired by everyday working people. Her aesthetic straddles the line between modern and folk, utilizing warm tones and simplified forms. The subjects in Carolyn’s paintings each tell a story. “When painting my characters I feel as though I have known them,” she says. After years of working in a banking environment, Carolyn is pleased to have transitioned to a more creative lifestyle. She now shares a studio with her husband, a fellow UGallery artist, and enjoys exercising her imagination and creativity.
