Carol Young
"Blush and Burgundy," Contemporary Acrylic Barn Painting

2018

$4,500

About

This contemporary painting by artist Carol Young is made with acrylic paint on a natural wood panel and measures 40" x 40". The artist, who is known for her use of bold contrasting colors and sharp shadows, depicts a blush lavender barn in a rural setting. The barn casts a vibrant purple shadow across green and sienna grass, with burgundy and purple landscape in the back and a yellow green sky. The use of color and shadow create a beautiful, serene scene reminiscent of sunrise or sunset. The wood panel sides are clean and natural looking, no framing necessary. The painting is wired and ready to hang. Of the painting, the artist says, "I love coming up with titles for my paintings. Sometimes the name comes to me after I see the completed work, and other times I have an idea of a name before I even start painting. I decided on this title after I finished this painting when I saw the soft hues of pink complimenting the rich red horizon. It reminded me of a blush and a burgundy wine." Carol C. Young is landscape painter working in acrylics and oils. She is a plein air painter as well as a studio artist whose contemporary work is primarily identified by a bold use of light and shadow along with iconic depictions of structures within the rural landscape. A fine arts major at the College of New Rochelle, NY, her paintings have won several awards including best in show at the Pequot Library Art show in CT, first place in the acrylic division at the Rowayton Arts Center in CT, and second place for acrylics/oils at the Mary O. Fritchie Art Show in Westhampton Beach, NY. "My technique is spontaneous," the artist says of her work. "I want to capture the moment in my painting, intrigued by the patterns created by sunlight, shadows and shapes at that time of day. When I paint structures, I am inspired by those that hold history. Ones that have been part of the landscape for a long time - ones that may be gone soon. America's rural landscape influences the majority of my work - structures that have a weathered history are intriguing, lonely and a nostalgic expression that inspires me. Shapes, light, shadows, and the magnificence of color are what move me to paint. I want to capture the beauty of history in an old farmhouse or barn, before the ever changing landscape changes again forever."
