A lone cow looks inquisitively at the viewer, and a simple farmhouse dots the horizon. Part of Carolyn's ongoing series of whimsical farm animals and wildlife. Carolyn says of her technique, "I started on this canvas by painting two coats of gesso, then I textured the surface with modeling paste applied with a palette knife. Layers of colors were painted over bright red that shows through here and there."
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.
