Rock Creek

sold. (12x6in.)

Little creeks like this make me very happy. I can't really explain why. My favorite thing is to explore them by myself. I found this beauty at a park in California last year, and snapped a few pictures.

I did this painting over an old one that wasn't so great. I don't do this often, but last summer a friend was telling me about Gamblin FastMatte, so I tried the titanium white to paint over the yicky painting. (notes: the old painting was completely dry; I scraped off any thick bits of old paint with my palette knife; the fastmatte didn't go on opaque like I expected!) I was very happy with the process and the result.

I've done another interview, this one about materials, in case you're interested.

love, love, love this slice of heaven, Carol. It would rock at a larger scale too!

I like painting over old paintings and purposefully leave areas to shine through - Gamblin FastMatte speeds up drying time.
Regardless of subject matter, your paintings have a wonderful freshness and harmony to them that is signature Carol Marine.
