"Painting nature, in the very act itself, is for me,
Jill Carver teaches her painting students to think of themselves as poets rather than journalists. She writes, "I want to say something 'specific' about my reaction to a place or a moment in time - to capture the essence but not the whole." Keen observation and immersion in the landscape around her gives Carver the ability to create paintings that express her own vision rather than simply rendering what is before her.
We asked her to tell us what the process of making art means to her:

The Artist's Road Store
Max the Easel Butler is an ultra-light tool that fits most easels, and creates a great platform for your palette. Replaces bulky, rigid shelves and attachments. Mounts in seconds. It can even mount on the side two legs rather than the front to allow more room to be closer to your painting. We like it so much we keep one in every painting kit! Also in our Store: Check out the tools and other products that we use in our own art and travels. We only offer things for sale in our Store that we enthusiastically believe in.
