Carole Keller | Church Landing at Mills Falls


  • Church Landing at Mill Falls 281 Daniel Webster Hwy Meredith, NH 03253 United States (map)

Carole was raised in New Hampshire and began painting at an early age. She studied painting and art history at Plymouth State College. She is a member of the New Hampshire Art Association and the Lakes Region Art Association. Her work is often shown in Portsmouth, NH at the NW Barrett Gallery, at the Green Heron Gallery in Ogunquit, ME and at the Bleu Waves Art Gallery in Meredith, NH. Here she paints and teaches in her studio throughout the year.
"I am inspired by painters like Sorolla, who have gone before me, lighting the way. I am intrigued with the way light bounces on objects and the unique colors it creates. I grapple with bringing my strokes, one at a time, loosely on the canvas with the desire to push the lights and temperature in the hidden shadow areas. I am forever working out the temperature of the strokes I lay next to each other as I paint.
I make art because it's impossible not to!"
About Carole’s Work
I find it easier to paint than not to. Painting for me is the one thing that I do that carries me from the world into the discipline of one pointedness. I am grounded like the raw sienna on a hillside or carried by the wind on the ultramarine sky.  Painting opens my eyes to the truth of nature and stillness and calls me to see. I welcome commissions for portraiture, landscapes or of anything that has personal meaning for you.
