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.

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 Original Paintings are available for sale.

I also enjoy sharing my painting experience with budding artists.
