About carole guthrie

A painter, exploring, evolving into an abstract world. Like Van Gogh said, "I dream my painting, and then I paint my dream." It's a world of shapes in balance.
I start with a blank canvas, usually 30 x 40". I apply paint with a palette knife, then scrape, leaving the underpainting texture. With a brush, I begin to compose with shape and line, leaving the scrapings show, to create depth. My work is unique and contemporary. Style is different from anyone else.
