River Muse Art Gallery & Studio... ...where creativity flows
Capturing the light is everything. Feeling the warmth of a sunny day or the damp chill of a misty mountain meadow at the first glance. The light and atmosphere tell the story and give me inspiration. I strive to convey the sense of a particular scene onto my canvas.
The ease of mixing and creating that perfect color, the sheen and texture of a good quality oil paint have had me hooked from the very first. I use a fairly limited palette to work from.
My work has also been in many different juried shows in Ohio, Vermont and New York. I was awarded the Catherine Johnson Award (top prize) at the Thousand Islands Art Center's annual Along the River’s Edge exhibition.
My work may be found in private collections as well as in Lake Saint Lawrence Gallery in Waddington NY, River Muse Gallery in Clayton NY and on my social media art pages including Paintings by Carol Backus on https://www.facebook.com/carolbackusart/ and Carol Backus Art on Instagram.
