Watch this timelapse of Carol C. Young painting.
“My technique is spontaneous. I want to capture the moment in my painting, intrigued by the patterns created by sunlight, shadows and shapes at that time of day.
When I paint structures, I am inspired by those that hold history. Ones that have been part of the landscape for a long time – ones that may be gone soon. America’s rural landscape influences the majority of my work – structures that have a weathered history are intriguing, lonely and a nostalgic expression that inspires me. Shapes, light, shadows, and the magnificence of color are what move me to paint. I want to capture the beauty of history in an old farmhouse or barn, before the ever changing landscape changes again forever.”
