The Art of It: Cora's Garden
Artist Carole Southall Telyan
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.”
