| AT OVERLOOK FARM|
Through living and working at Heifer International's Overlook Farm in Rutland, MA, for several years, Carolyn has formed a deep connection with the beauty of farm animals that has spilled joyfully into her paintings. Heifer International is a developmental charity that donates farm animals to families living in poverty. The organization is currently teaching and aiding families in 29 U.S. states and 57 countries across the world.

About this series, Carolyn says, "Welcome to the dream world I have created since retiring 7/1/02, a world where there are no words: a world of flow, lovely colors, joy and thanksgiving. In this world, the creative force bursts forth beyond my thoughts and talents. I hope the joy and passion I found in painting water and sky these last months will be passed on to you as you view my work/play!"

In her paintings of children, we see her sensitivity to the smallest gestures and feel her love and understanding of the world of the young. To view more watercolors of children, click on the picture.
