So yah, this is a stretch for publicity, but WHATEV! My friend and photographer Tony Bounsall emailed me to tell me I was mentioned in Chris Tyrell's latest book called Making It! Case studies of Successful Canadian Visual Artists. I thought this a bit premature, 'cause I've only been painting on the ground for about 18 [...]

Morning Glory, New painting by Carollyne Yardley, Pop Surrealism

By | March 12th, 2012|Art News, Art of Consumption, Paintings, Squirrel Series|

Fresh on the heels of  The Dovekeeper, comes this one called Morning Glory. I was going to call it something a bit more rude, but my good friend and photographer Jen Steele, came up with this moniker instead. Much more family friendly.
