"From the Window" & "Harde Barn Apt" - SOLD



Click Here to Bid

Above is the snowscape I promised earlier in the week. By yesterday the snow had all but completely melted, and this morning I woke up to all white again. If it were to snow 1/2 an inch in Texas I would assume the airport would shut down, but my flight went as planned and I am home now safe and sound. : )

Below is a small interior scene from the barn apt I called home for the past week. It was a lovely place to stay and the Harde's were very kind to put me up. This painting was my gift to them as a thank you. Thank you also to all my kids and Laurie and Kathy and all the crazy ladies from Sunday night (you know who you are!). Thank you for making my time in MA memorable, to say the least!!!

Carol, I just love these paintings you did in Maine! I especially love the chairs!

Mark Bridges said...

These are so spot on with the brush work. The sense of light in the landscape is awesome.

Wonderful big-brush tonal paintings - the stuff I love.

Wow. I love both of these. The snow scene is every bit as spectacular as I'd hoped, and the barn apartment interior is so cosy. I love the shine on that barn red tablecloth for some reason -- it sets the mood of the whole thing, and the place is so light and airy. You must have had a great time there!

I love the interior painting. You capture it just perfectly.

As a MA resident, I loved knowing you were in my state. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Barbara Pask said...

Love both of these. I especially like the interior scene, the colors and the reflections on the table. Glad you had a successful trip.

Here here! These are great and I'd love to see more interiors. Love the blueish reflection on the left chair and on the table. Both paintings have such a solid sense of light to them. :)

Carol, I truly envy your economy of style. This interior is absolutely wonderful. You make just enough marks to pass on the feeling then you leave it. The people must be delighted with it.

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

Theses totally rock. I like what Sheila said about the spareness of your painting style. Just enough AND those vibrating edges!

Carol,
Can you come and stay in my house in Southern California and paint me a painting like this? Anytime! I love both paintings but your interior scene is fantastic. Great chairs, light, everything is wonderful!

Kim VanDerhoek said...

WOW, these are wonderful! Strong compositions and just enough interest without being over-done. WOW!

Jo Castillo said...

Very nice work. I like the warmth in the snow and the composition and color in the interior. I love red. Did you bring the cold back with you? It is supposed to be in the 40's tomorrow afternoon. :( Guess I should just be glad it is cooling off a little after the heat wave. We are never satisfied. Glad you are safely home.

Beautiful! I love to see how you approach an interior scene like this! Sounds like a fun trip.
