The internet really is a wonderful place. If you look in the right places you’re bound to find some real treasures. Take for example the work of Carol Marine. Since October 2006 Carol has been creating one small painting nearly every day and she shares this work through her blog. It’s a simple idea and one which I’ve seen a number of times before, but it’s wonderful to see someone produce such great work of quality and consistency. Caroline has real skill as a painter and her daily still lives are a constant treat.
Living and working in Eugene, OR with her husband and son, Caroline says she enjoys painting small and often. Her oil paintings frequently feature simple still lives and she also often paints urban landscapes and figures. As you can see from the work featured here, she has a wonderful command of color and can capture light perfectly with bold, confident brush strokes.
You would imagine that by painting so often she wouldn’t have time for anything else but looking through her blog you can find books for sale, information about workshops and even a series of online tutorials. It’s clear that she’s a busy woman. You can view over seven years worth of work on her blog here. You won’t be disappointed!
