American Contemporary

My work is about the beauty of the natural world as well as the craft of painting itself. I value the characteristics present in composition, varied textures, and the power of light and color. I intend for the stillness of my scenes to bring to mind times long past, and the luminosity to suggest a slight enchantment. Many find the paintings as an escape, the meandering paths and waters as avenues for adventure. Yet, some find the scenes familiar – perhaps the backyard they grew up in, a road they took once, or a landscape more interior.

I choose to work in a style that creates an intimate experience for my viewers. The size emphasizes the importance of each brushstroke. I employ traditional techniques and the finest quality watercolors and oils to create landscapes with atmosphere and depth. These mediums allow me to portray the ephemeral beauty of our world in a lasting manner.

I am drawn to portraiture as well as equine and canine subjects. Yet, many of my landscapes are without a protagonist, allowing the viewer to walk into the scene, or perhaps more accurately, to stand in the grass at the edge of the scene and breathe a breath of fresh air.

Carolyn H. Edlund is a master artist known and collected internationally.
