Carolyn Schlam, traditional & stylized portraits


I explore Portraiture in its many aspects – Traditional, in which appearance and character are foremost; Expressionistic, in which the inner life is heightened, and Stylized, in which the image becomes iconic.  I work in oil on canvas and build layers of paint, often sanding previous layers. I am always concerned that the paint feel beautiful and lovingly, tenderly applied, but without hesitation, and with spirit and positive energy.
