"While creating this painting my thought was that each of us women have a Mystery Woman within us," says Carolyn Pennor. "I first textured the canvas around the figure with modeling paste, then painted dark to light in the background. The figure was carefully modeled with glazes of color. I very much enjoyed painting the rose in her hat."
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.
