About the Artist
Carole Cooke is determined to capture the landscape in its truest sense and to interpret the subtle tones nature presents by painting on location as much as possible. She hopes that sharing images of pristine natural vistas will not only help viewers experience a strong connection to nature, but will also encourage them to join in efforts to preserve these vanishing treasures. Her work has been in acclaimed museums and has won several distinguished awards. She has been featured in Art of the West, Southwest Art, and Western Art Collector magazines. She is represented by The Legacy Gallery in Wyoming and Arizona, as well as The Goodnight Trail Gallery and Broadmoor Gallery in Colorado.
What artist inspires you? Why?
The late, great master, James Reynolds. His landscape paintings take my breath away. He was a master at beautiful color, amazing values, and incredible brushwork. He also conveyed a mood of mystery that I love.
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
Ideas come to me from everywhere in nature. I am always observing and being inspired by what magic is happening from dawn until dusk.
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
Seeing all the amazing work in "The Masters of the American West" at the Autry National Center and also at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art in early February was definitely inspiring.
