Carolyn Hutchings Edlund

My work is about the beauty of the natural world as well as the craft of painting itself. I value the characteristics present in both - composition, varied textures, and the power of light and color. I intend the stillness of my scenes to bring to mind times long past and the luminosity to suggest a slight enchantment. Many find the paintings an escape, the meandering paths and waters avenues for adventure. Yet, some find the scenes familiar - perhaps the backyard they grew up in, a road they took once, or a landscape more interior.

My working method, which emphasizes the importance of each brushstroke, creates an intimate experience for my viewers. I employ traditional techniques and the finest quality watercolors and oils to create landscapes with atmosphere and depth. These mediums allow me to portray the ephemeral beauty of our world in a lasting manner.

I am drawn to portraiture as well as equine and canine subjects. Yet, many of my landscapes are without a protagonist, allowing the viewer to walk into the scene, or perhaps more accurately, to stand in the grass at the edge of the scene and breathe a breath of fresh air.
