Artwork

A folk art style painting of a rhinoceros in a field of wildflowers basking in the moonlight, with two birds resting on the animal's back. Artist Carolyn Pennor says she wanted to emphasized the relationship of wild creatures. "I layered the canvas with modeling paste and gesso multiple times to create texture," explains Carolyn. "For harmony, I painted each area of the piece starting with a dark version of the color, then I gradually applied lighter colors."

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.

Dear K Sommer I am so sorry that I am responding so late to your question. I have been having a problem with my computer. The final coating is a clear protective acrylic varnish. Thank you very much for purchasing one of my favorite paintings. Carolyn

Hello, Carolyn - I love your Moon Cow painting. I'm wondering if the edges are painted/wrapped and why the painting is "varnished"? Thank you very much!
