Hally DeCarion's Paintingswww.ArtPal.com/hsdecarion
Painting is something which I've done most of my life. I have worked in various
media such as ceramics and sculpture. Currently, I live in beautiful Sonoma County in
California. During my 40's, I received a BFA when I studied sculpture at the
University of NE at Omaha. Welding found metal pieces was a fun and unusual
experience which I enjoyed. Now, I take classes through the local college, enter
various art shows and festivals. I was also a member of Plaza Arts Center in
Healdsburg for a few years.
Even though I am considered 'retired', I am now learning collage. I am
inspired by the places I have been fortunate to travel to, the people I have met
and the basic ordinary scenery of every day life. I don't feel I fall into a particular
category, though my work has become more realistic lately. I am fond of the
Impressionists, Monet, Degas, Matisse, Bernard, Gaugain and especially Cezanne.
Abstract Expressionism appeals to me as well.
Part of the pleasure of painting pictures is sharing them
with others. I hope you find as much enjoyment in viewing my work as I have
had in creating it. Thirty per cent of the sale of my art goes to groups
which support the enironment.
