Carolyn Letvin

Schooled in Flemish Old Master techniques, I have a great respect and admiration for the traditional systems and applications. Currently, I’m using an expanded palette and a bold, active paint application to portray my realities.

 

I experience life, with all its subtleties and intricacies, as a direct, perceptible experience. Therefore, my subjects are what I perceive and are all worthy of depiction by virtue of their existence in the world.

 

The act of painting is a series of constant surprises – an experience that is always exhilarating and, at times, even magical. Bringing composition, color, surface and light quality together is my continual struggle and challenge.
