Welcome to The Art Of Carol Cavalaris
Painting wildlife and nature, color and detail, are my passions. I have a fine art background in oil painting, however I really enjoy the freedom of the digital medium as it stimulates my imagination and offers so many exciting possibilities.
I explore art programs, like Photoshop and ArtRage, still using brushes to paint, but now the computer screen is my canvas. Some of my art is painted entirely in Photoshop. Other work is a blend of reality and fantasy as I combine photo sources and painting techniques to create my unique mixed medium images that I call living art.
My Language of Flowers series is inspired by my fascination with the colors and textures of flowers, and the way they always speak to my heart.
My Spirit Of The Wild series is inspired by my love for animals. Many of the creatures in this series are or were at one time among the endangered species. I believe each has something precious and special to give to all of us and each painting is a tribute to these amazing creatures, where I strive to capture their essence. Many of the animals I paint have a spiritual quality with the power to heal hearts and spirits, if one is open to their message.
I see the uniqueness in every living being as a momentary gift to be treasured. And so it is this need to capture the life force, to enhance and celebrate it, and even give it life long after it has faded, that gives meaning to my work. Creating, learning, and growing artistically have kept the joy alive and it is my passion to bring healing joy and beauty to others.
