The Art of It: Cora's Garden
Artist Carole Southall Telyan painted Cora’s Garden at Weir Farm
Inspired by the love letters between Julian and Anna Weir, artist Carole Southall Telyan painted “Cora’s Garden at Weir Farm,” as a tribute to the Weirs’ daughter, Cora.
“It was an absolutely gorgeous sunny spring day. The joy I felt caused all the happy colors to go onto the canvas,” says Telyan with a smile.
She uses acrylic for her base and concept painting and then finishes them off with oil paint. Her love of nature and a strong background in printmaking inspires her work, which was described by a critic as “Fauve Regionalism.”
