Carol Estes Works

Carol Estes

My images reflect an inner buoyancy and progressive optimism.  I love color and I feel energized when surrounded by a vast language of spectrums.

Abstract painting is not something I wanted to try is way beyond that. It is a part of who I am, a part of my personality, my nature.

My earlier works of art were developed at Stout-McCourt Gallery, located in the

avant-garde, bohemian music and arts district known as “ Deep Ellum “ in Dallas, Texas. 

My studio was located above the Stout-McCourt Gallery  from the late 1980’s until 1993, when I moved to New Mexico.

As New Mexico attracts artists due to the unique light.  Sometimes, its late in the afternoon - its a sienna, retro-filter casting a hue of shadow on the mountains...sometimes its a warm, highlighter of golden light dancing through the desert, sometimes its the sunrise, sometimes its the sunset.

Throughout my journeys, I love the freedom, mystery and expressions of abstract works 

of it comes from the soul, with its own language, its own way of life, individualistic and captured, archived upon its vessel.
