In my early days of painting I realized that I was very moved by the use of color and I found scenic beauty across the United States to inspire that artistic expression. I have attended workshops in the United States and Canada with leading artists who have generously shared their knowledge and contributed to development of my personal artistic style of painting with oil and watercolor. I focus primarily on landscape, figurative and still life and enjoy the never ending journey of learning. I am a member of Oil Painters of America.
When asked what motivates and challenges me:
A friend said: "Our most intense feelings can be in those moments when the beauty of nature brings us to silence." This statement expresses my feelings when I stand in the grandeur of nature. That is when I am motivated to capture that vista, that moment of inspiration that brought me to silence.
I hope you enjoy my art, Carol Medford, Texas Artist
