Catching Up!

It has been a while since my last post but not because i haven't been busy working! Posted here is the larger canvas (36 x 60) version of Spirit Guide. Enlarging the 12 x 15 version took some doing but i was able to add some additional design elements i think really enhanced the original design. Something to be said for going big!

I have also been working on bringing the Divine Roots ( i believe formerly titled Nature's Vessels) to a diptych (two 20 x 60 canvases) which again will take some redesigning in order for it to work on the larger formats.

My third project is a nine panel piece (each 10" square) also known as a polyptych. While this is not a new format for me I didn't know it actually had a name!! What is new is putting each design on a different canvas and attaching them all together. So the design has to work individually as well as in concert with the others.

So, while it is cold and snowy, the plus is more time in the studio!!


  1. Hi Carolyn! Wow that's huge. I could clearly see the figure in the other one but despite being nearly the same this is more abstracted. Both are equally beautiful! There's a real sense of depth and light and shade. The colours really work too.

  2. Gorgeous! I love the design and colors.

  3. Your work IS inspired and inspiring!! Keep going ...

  4. Hi Carolyn, I am impressed by your work! It must be fun to see in person. I like how the shapes move and relate!
