Solice in Seasons
A Carol Little Exhibit in the Sally Little Danyo Members’ Sales Gallery on exhibit at York Art Association, March 1 – April 2, 2021
Carol Robertson Little began painting in 2009, taking her first art class at York (PA) Art Association in the winter of 2010. Painting primarily in oils, she has been influenced by instructors Phyllis Disher Fredericks, Anita Williams, Susan Nicholas Gephart, and Barbara Buchanan. While most of her work is realistic, she has executed some paintings in an impressionistic style. She paints both in York, PA, and Benson, VT.
She has won awards in York Art Association exhibits, and has been juried into exhibits there, as well as at Farm and Natural Lands Trust, Freedom Seekers at William Goodridge Freedom Center, and Framers Workshop in York.
She participates in York Art Association exhibits, with the Gallery Group of YAA at various venues, Creative York exhibits, and with the Orwell Artists group and the Stratford House Gallery in Orwell, Vermont.
In the past tumultuous year, I have found solace in nature in all seasons. On daily walks, I find the changing of the seasons a solid refuge from conflict. Spring always follows even the roughest winter, and summer’s heat gives way to the coolness and colors of autumn.
I enjoy the challenge of trying to capture the beauty of the world around us, always trying to invite the viewer to enter and explore the view. My landscapes are generally places which I have visited, and I try to re-create the mood of the moment with color, light and shadows.
I paint because I love to paint. So, there is no great social or philosophical message in my paintings; I just want to make the viewer feel good when they look at my art. If it has made you happy, I am happy!
