“My love of folk art shows in this paintings. My friends in Arroyo Seco,NM rented this house. I saw my daughter taking this picture of their adobe in the snow and I wondered why, until I saw her picture. Wow! My painting juices immediately forced me to get out the paints. My love of folk art and New Mexico even inspired me to paint a NM border. It is one of my favorites.”
Blues, Blue Greens and Cad Reds create a vibrating interplay and set the stage for another of Carolene’s architectural works. True to her love of folk art the black outlines create visually complex abstractions aside the energy filled dancing lines of plants and trees. Anyone who knows the tiny village of Arroyo Seco will recognize this structure. The buildings lining the Main Street are replete with history and were the homes and haciendas of the Hispanic settlers in the area over 400 years ago. “Seco” as it is lovingly called by its residents is sandwiched between the vast Pueblo lands and the sacred Taos Mountain and is the pathway to Valdez Valley and into the famous Taos Ski Valley. Carolene’s graphic patterns and strong brush work make this painting in a sleepy New Mexican village a visually exciting experience. The passion in execution and style is joyful.
