Other Mediums: None

Landscape is my first love. I’ve always turned to nature as a child for comfort and wonder. I’m attracted to the beauty of land, earth and sky. They work together to compose magnificent pictures, which I enjoy capturing either plein air or with a camera to reference in the studio. Working outside has brought my sense of color and light to a much more delicate and precise place.

My style is considered realism brushed by impressionism, which I feel is the way beholders actually experience nature. The melding yields land, sea and cloudscapes “plush” in color and texture. The realist looks at the ordinary world around them and records it. This was derived as a philosophic conviction that goodness, beauty, and interest are in the world as it is.

Carolyn Francis is represented at Coralberry Cottage, Mt. Pleasant SC. Her paintings can be found in corporate and private collections throughout North America and Europe.
