Meet Artist Carolyn Walton

Meet Carolyn Walton, who paints from her home on the coast of Maine. I've known Carolyn for a couple of years, but don't get to paint with her very often, because there's a bit of a trek between us. Carolyn paints primarily in oils, capturing the landscape and architecture of the Northeast and Europe. Inspired by the rural landscape, she is well-known for her interpretation of hay bales, farmland and the coast. She paints en plein air and in her studio, working on larger oil paintings, as well as pastels and gouaches. One day, I'd like to take one of her week long workshops.

Do visit Carolyn's website, and if you are on the east coast, one of the galleries that represent her. You'll see some very fine paintings.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I'd like to periodically introduce you to artists that I meet on my travels. I'm working on a reorganization my blog layout to make it easier to find those posts, and also posts about specific workshops that I've attended, in the hope of spreading the word about these wonderful artists.
