Betty has recently been selected as a master painter in the” American Impressionist Society”(AISM). She is also a signature member of “APAP”, Arizona Plein Air Painters Association.
Following years of instructing art in Colorado and California and developing her distinctive painting style, Betty and artist husband decided to follow the sun to the southwest where color and light are ever present. Betty, in discussing her painting style; impressionism, enthusiastic brushwork and the use of light and dark, shows the enthusiasm and spontaneity of getting the scene in her hands.
“What catches my eye is the effect light has on form in unique situations whether fleeting, spilling over, striking, etc. I challenge myself in capturing its dramatic and/or subtle effects. I strive for confident enthusiastic brushwork, the maximizing of color’s value and intensity range and a fresh painterly approach, the result appearing effortless” -Betty Carr
