"Apple & Spoon" --- SOLD



I was on a run yesterday with my measuring spoons so I did an extra painting. Today I did a large painting of fruit (go figure). Sometimes I feel like a painting machine and I forget what motivated me to paint in the first place. Ok - I admit it - I feel like that now - so I've decided to take a little break so I'm nice and fresh for my workshop next week. I am going off to see my folks for the weekend and will be back Sunday. I finally get to glaze the pots I threw forever ago, and then my mom will fire them and THEN I can use them in my paintings! Wahoo!

Hi Carol, since I found your blog a month ago I've been going through it from the beginning. You rock!! I look forward to your post everyday!

Carol, I am drawn to your brush strokes and more angular look at the world. If I were an oil painter, I would like my work to look like this! Paint on!

hey carol the medium you created is amazing! you could bottle and sell that as 'carols perfect medium' just the right amount of thickness and body. thanks so much for sharing it. i can officially try to break my bad galkyd habit now. (but i'll really miss the headaches)
these utensil paintings are wonderful. you give all this unexpected beauty to these humble subjects, particularly when they are things that often get overlooked everyday (like that garlic press you painted recently- that utensil became a star because of your brush). i have to echo what Kate said above, since i found your blog i look forward to admiring your work everyday. thanks for that amazing meduim formula again. b.
