Earlier this summer, I was facing a lengthy stretch of work with lots of activity combined with very little down time. I know myself well enough to know: this does not a balanced Caroline make. (INFJ problems. The struggle is real.) Long hours and looming deadlines can often be the death knell to creativity. At least mine. And sanity.
So, I decided to act and reach for a little bit of that self care. I (finally) started a meditation practice. And then, about the same time, my mom offered up her vintage Strathmore watercolor pads which she had kept in the bottom drawer of her grandmother’s writing desk for decades. I’m not sure which came first, the meditation or the urge to paint again, but I know this: I have reconnected with something wonderful that I am not going to put back down… ever. I am in the midst of a mad love affair with watercolor and ink. So get ready for some original art to fill your walls.
Come see the opening of my collection of all new original art at In Your Eye Gallery on Friday 11/04 for #firstfridaypaseo. “Color, Connections, Constellations” will be up all of November through 11/26. I will have framed works in addition to many signed originals and minis (perfect for gifts, if I don’t say so myself) there on hand. Each piece of one-of-a-kind and made especially for you.
This website will be getting a face lift to showcase my new original art in addition to my photography work; in the meantime, please follow my work on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat. Following my favorite artists on Instagram Stories and Snapchat has been a new and exciting way for me to keep up with my favorite artists, and I am taking full advantage of the ability to share my work and studio in the same way.
