What is Carolee's creative process?
Carolee paints in a large corner window in her studio, with a lot of natural light on the second floor of her home overlooking the woods. Her dog Teddi will sleep sometimes next to her as she paints. Carolee works from photos, she lightly sketches out the design then paints from a palette of about sixteen colors. She just starts painting never planning out the colors the colors and textures just flow. She calls this BEING IN THE FLOW when you are in a state of total focus, painting just comes natural after so many years of painting. When she paints early in the morning she cracks a window and listens to the birds chirping then will either listen to inspirational podcasts, Christmas music or other music that she loves.
