Artist: Caryn Reihling
18"w x 24"h
I am a mostly self-taught artist and have been making art of one kind or another for as long as I can remember. Originally from Ohio, I moved to the St. Petersburg area in 1990. I retired from nursing in 2017 and decided to devote my time to my painting. My favorite medium is acrylic paint but I also dabble in watercolor, and have started to experiment with multimedia. Bright bold colors are my passion. Trying to capture the lights and shadows in a subject fascinates me. I enjoy exploring different styles as I continue my art journey, but I lean toward expressionism and impressionism. I am inspired by the world around me, and I find I am looking at everyday things differently now. Everything is an opportunity to paint!
