Welcome to the online gallery of Dutch artist Carole
on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
This painting, entitled "Fragrance" 12x12 was
donated to the
Nansemond-Suffolk Academy, where I'll be featured
artist this month,
and will be part of their permanent collection!
After another successful event at the
Barrier Islands Center in Machipongo, VA last November, it was
back to the easel for a few Christmas commissions! I painted
various works, including a portrait commission...something I
don't do on a regular basis. The portrait was of the late
Florence Vermeal (see below), who's husband wanted to have a
lasting memory of his beloved wife and mother of 4. I was truly
honored and very thankful that I was able to capture her
likeness! After the holidays, I started working on new works for
the Art Show & Sale at Nansemond-Suffolk Academy later this
month. Opening for the public is on Saturday, January 26 from
10am till 4pm. I will be present the entire day to answer
questions about my work and techniques and look forward to
seeing you there!
