do you enjoy paintings?

The joy of being a painting artist is sharing my paintings and my expertise.

Paintings showcase the world thru the artist's eyes. It is the opportunity to show the world what we see.

This website is the world thru my eyes. All the beautiful things in nature are the subjects of my paintings.

There are about a hundred paintings on this website. So sit back, relax and take time to enjoy the paintings.

Nature paintings are my passion

painting all the beauty of nature


You will find paintings from the seashore to mountains, hummingbirds to flowers and butterflies.

My nature paintings also include critters such as giraffes, dolphins, manatees and koi paintings.

One of my favorite paintings is the painting above, "Koi Feeding".

It is so enjoyable being a painting artist.

The painting artist Carol May

 I grew up living in the country. My normal pass-time was walking in the woods enjoying all the beautiful things in nature.

Art was my minor in college. I didn't paint much until my mother retired. She took up painting and got me started painting. Naturally I wanted to paint the things I saw around me.

My favorite things to paint are birds, butterflies and flowers. I enjoy them while I am gardening.

I feed the birds and plant flowers for the butterflies. Then there are more critters to photograph and paint.

Painting buildings and people is not my forte. I have done a few, but I prefer painting nature.

Beautiful reproductions and Originals are available for sale.

I also enjoy sharing my painting experience with budding artists.
