Featured Artist: Carol Blundell

I like it when my art has been hanging in one place long enough that people stop and examine it, and can find different aspects that weren’t apparent at first glance.  Something else that appeals to me is when I actually make the art, from when I first put paint to canvas to when it dries, it can change drastically and I never know what I am going to end up with.

With my art, I want to broaden people’s perception of art beyond just landscapes and portraits.  I want them to enjoy the color combinations, some that go against every rule of the color wheel; and I want them to picture something exciting that they can enjoy, no matter where the art eventually hangs; whether it be a sitting room, bedroom, or bathroom.

“Celebrate the human, the marks people make on the world. Treasure the local, the small-scale, the eccentric, the ordinary: whatever is made out of caring. Respect what people have built for themselves. Find the beauty in some battered old porch or cluttered, human-scale storefront, while it still stands.”  (Nancy McIntyre, silk screen artist)
