Story of An Artist
My name is Cathy Carson and I am a pastel painter living and working on a property in Dirranbandi, Western Queensland. I have been painting for thirteen years. My life here gives me many subjects to paint and I love painting the people, animals and the countryside around me. I hope that my paintings reflect the spirit of the outback.
I welcome commissions and enjoy the extra challenge that a commission work provides me. It is a wonderful way to extend myself as an artist.
I love to paint and I hope you enjoy my paintings as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
Learning a new Technique
At a recent workshop I learnt to use treated paper plus gesso, tissue and charcoal which resulted in some new "sheep paintings". My thanks to Chontelle Perrin for the fantastic photo.
I am always looking for new subjects and thought that a cotton boll was a change from a traditional "still life" painting.
Stone the Flaming Crows
This painting was presented as a gift to Ray Meagher when he came out to open the Dirranbandi Show in 2016.
