CAROL WILEY Artist's Statement

ART IS A VISUAL CONVERSATION between artist and canvas.
Painting feeds my soul. The infinite possibilities for putting paint to surface fascinate me. Each time I approach the easel I am eager to see what will happen as I work to integrate what I know about painting with my intuition and inspiration.
I find freedom when I use a variety of media to explore color relationships, interesting shapes, and linear movement. I almost always paint from life. My figure paintings begin with drawings of "live" models. It is when I begin to paint into the drawing that they seem to take on a life of their own.
While I am not compelled to paint everyday, after a short time at the easel the painting seems to take over.
I hope my paintings will make people stop as they walk by and come back for a second look, to think and talk about them. Each painting has meaning for me. Hopefully others will find here their own meaning.
