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.

Canyon Light by Carol Marine
Last semester I heard about Carol Marine through a classmate and fell in love with her work immediately.
She has a keen eye for shifts in value and temperature. I love her thick and bold application of paint. Her work contains a beautiful balance between representation and abstraction.
Carol Marine is one among many “daily painters” and her work is featured on Daily Paintworks. The idea of starting and finishing a painting a day appeals to me and is the direction I want to go with my own work.
