Carol Duke’s Paintings
My paintings are colorful and representational. Of all the mediums of art that I work in, I love painting the most. The freedom of moving paint around a canvas. The spontaneity and surprise that unfolds during a session painting is very rewarding. Feelings and emotions come alive through the creative process of painting that is unlike any other medium I have worked in. I can get frustrated at times but it is always a growing experience.
“When I put a green, it is not grass. When I put a blue, it is not the sky.”
“I do not literally paint that table, but the emotion it produces upon me.”
