Paintings by Carol Ann Schrader

something to me. The best can make me forget everything else except for the piece
A beautiful rock or dove's feather is equally important in the production of Carol Ann Schrader's paintings as the actual material used. Although she paints a broad range of subject matter, her work focuses primarily on people, places and things that are particularly meaningful to her. She often works with still life because it allows her to exercise a great degree of control over shape, color and placement.
Schrader's approach to watercolor is influenced by her background in oil painting. Her work, with its rich depth and tonality, shows that watercolor is capable of being used in non-traditional ways, and for now, she would not choose to paint with anything else.
