Artist: Pam Carroll

I saw Pam Carroll's work first in the Artist's Magazine that I've subscribed to. I was really drawn to the whimsical items she includes in her still lifes. The stark background here makes me focus more on the details of the toys and that beautifully weathered chest. In the magazine, it showed her process, how she puts down the layers, building the depth and color. It was so interesting.

I got a C in painting in college. I think it was because the instructors gave us a supply list and assignments. That was it. No actually technical instruction. I can't believe they get away with that. Thankfully, the rest of the art department was more on the ball. Anyway, I'm digressing.

If you'd like to see more of Pam Carroll's work, visit the Snow Goose Gallery or go here.

Very intersting art. I always wonder where people get their inspiration from. Especially when the pieces are so unique.

I think Pam just gathers interesting items and arranges them.
