1st floor community room:

These paintings are imagined/remembered landscapes, done in acrylic on canvas or panel.  I paint with oils on location (plein air) in the warmer months.

 Four things:

 -I’ve been painting since childhood. 

-For over 25 years, I have sold my artwork at galleries and at juried outdoor art festivals.

-You may view more work at www.carolboucher.com and at Shore Acres in North Hero, VT, in addition to other BCA venues.
