Caroline Larsen’s woven gardens

Larsen1Caroline Larsen continues to advance the technique of making her oil paintings look like tapestries. In a previous post (March, 2013 here), she focused on fire. Now, her woven paint subject is a Desert Garden (above).  Below: Garden Mound.

    • Absolutely agree. When I saw her previous work for the first time, that was my impression also. It’s a niche she’s currently occupying solo, and doing so well with.


    • Yes, absolutely amazing, especially as she continues to perfect it. She uses a bag with a serrated tip to extrude the paint, which she weaves over itself as she paints.
