Carol Rienecker


A lifetime of conscious and unconscious responses to the natural world come to the surface in my paintings.  In a very real sense my work is autobiographical.  Color has always fascinated me.  Making most of my paints in bowls usig ground pigments and linseed oil I obtain highly saturated and, sometines, unusual hues.  Exploration is called forth.  Bowls of leftover paints are a path to the next painting.  My early training and love of math has led me effortlessly into abstraction where I am currently exploring the many lives of the line.  I have found a way to adventure armed with bowls of paint and a bucket of brushes.  JOY!
