FOR SANTA FE ARTIST CARLA MUTH THE OPPORTUNITY TO PAINT AND DRAW WAS LIMITED TO TIMES OF STRESS RELIEF, UNTIL LIFE BEGAN ANEW WHEN THE "BOYS" WERE GROWN AND THE 30 YEAR HEALTH CAREEER COULD BE REPLACED BY FULL TIME ART. "IT IS TRULY AN EXCITING BLESSING TO KNOW THAT EACH MORNING I CAN ACTUALLY GET UP TO DRAW, PAINT, AND GENERALLY INDULGE IN CREATIVE ACTIVITY."

ALTHOUGH CARLA STARTED WITH AN EARLY FASCINATION OF COLORED PENCIL SHE HAS BECOME PASSIONATE ABOUT PASTELS. "THE PASTEL COLOR PALETTE IS SO EXTRAORDINARY THAT YOU HAVE CONSTANT COLOR CHOICES THAT LITERALLY VIBRATE. THE CHALLENGE IS HOW TO CONTROL ALL THAT COLOR!" SHE BEGAN THE SEARCH BY STUDYING THE LIGHT BUT HAS FOUND THAT THE STUDY OF THE DARKNESS IDENTIFIES THE LIGHT. CARLA TRIES TO MAKE THE DARKNESS COME ALIVE SO THAT THE LIGHT GLOWS IN HER PAINTINGS.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR CARLA TO CONTINUE TO EXPERIMENT AND LEARN NEW TECHNIQUES SO SHE CONTINUES TO ADD DIMENSION TO HER WORK BY WORKSHOPS AND THE ADVENTURE OF NEW MEDIAS: IE ACRYLICS, WATER BASED OIL PAINT, NEW PAPERS INCLUDING HER OWN HANDMADE PAPERS. "THE CREATING OF ART IS A DAILY ADVENTURE. IT'S FINDING THE TIME THAT REMAINS A CONSTANT CHALLENGE"

"IN SANTA FE, WE ARE SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE SUCH AMAZING LIGHT TO LIVE AND WORK IN AND THEN TRANSLATE TO THE VIEWER EVEN OVERCAST DAYS SHOWER US WITH LIGHT. THERE ARE SO MANY WONDERFUL THINGS TO "SEE" AND I HOPE THAT THE VIEWER ENJOYS MY VIEW AS MUCH AS I DO IN THE OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE IT!"

CARLA IS A JURIED MEMBER OF THE SANTA FE SOCITY OF ARTISTS AND THE PASTEL SOCITY OF NEW MEXICO. SHE HAS BEEN JURIED INTO AND RECEIVED AWARDS FROM NATIONAL SHOWS. SHE CAN BE CONTACTED FOR A STUDIO APPOINTMENT @ 505-9897279. YOU CAN ALSO REACH HER @ McMuth@aol.com.
