Friday Favorite

Bulb Bits by Carol Marine

Thank you everyone for stopping by and commenting on Friday Favorites. In last week’s post on Carol Marine’s Canyon Light, Paula mentioned Carol’s appreciation for light and reflection of light which is an aspect of her work that I too admire. Painting glass on a light surface is challenging and Carol does a masterful job. Using a more neutral color scheme allows those reflected lights to pop adding variety and richness to the whole piece.

In her FAQ on her blog, she mentions that it has taken her 20 years to get to the point where she can paint one small painting in 1 to 3 hours. That’s both comforting and daunting at the same time. For now, it’s motivating me to finish this post and get back to drawing.


Friday Favorite posts are where I share art (mostly paintings and drawings) that inspires me. To see more Friday Favorites, click here.

  1. Kimberly, I was confused! I saw your post and thought Bulb Bits was your painting. I had to scroll back up to read it wasn’t. Still I know you are at the same level in catching the light and adding shadow to create depth.

    • Oops! I was going too quickly and forgot to label the post “Friday Favorite”. Guess the big header with the artist’s name isn’t enough – good to know! Thanks for telling me so I could fix it! It’s important not to forget the “Friday Favorite” bit because when I do post my own work (not that often during the semester) I don’t usually post much/any text with it.
