Guest Artists at the Tasting Room
Our tasting room is small, but charming ~ and a big part of that charm is due to the local artists who graciously exhibit their art works at Flying Fox. Our current guest is Carolyn Ratcliffe. We asked her to tell us a bit about the works on display this fall.
As a self-taught artist, I first began painting with acrylics on wood and retained membership with the Society of Decorative Painters. It wasn't until moving to Virginia that I expanded my artistic and creative talents by exploring the use of different mediums, including pastel, watercolor and ink.
Currently, I'm working with alcohol inks, and find myself so
fascinated by the variety of shapes that emerge, and colors that are
so vibrant, that they add a new dimension and perspective to the
painting. As I work with new and different techniques, I'm excited and
energized in the "discovery of the unexpected".
I'm delighted to share with you, a collection of my pastel and alcohol
ink paintings, two of which are featured here. Enjoy!
