Double Feature at Cormier Jewelers - September and October 2021

Carole Bentley

Every day that I can paint is a happy day!  I am an enthusiastic artist; it's a daily part of my life.  I'm preparing in my mind for the next artwork even when I'm not painting.

My subject matter is a mixture of interests from landscapes and seascapes to flowers, birds, and abstracts.  I paint what I feel I am connected to.  There is usually a story behind the piece, a place, a feeling, an urge to see what happens with the brushes or pastels.  I like to make the color and light pop from the canvas or paper. 

As Vincent Van Gogh said, "If you hear a voice within you say, you are not a painter, then by all means paint...and that voice will be silenced."

Creativity has always been a part of my life.

 

As a child the new box of crayons and pad of paper opened the world of possibilities for me.

 

I do not have a formal degree in art but as an adult I have had the opportunities to learn from an array of talented teachers and artist. I am always looking to learn something new. I am always testing new avenues for my art.

 

Creating art gives me great pleasure and hopefully that is passed on to those who view my art.
