Not For Sale
Montreal is known for its distinctive houses with their wrought-iron outdoor staircases. It is the distinct shadow of the staircase cast across the solid brick mass of the building that I find most captivating. I loved the strong play of the cool blue and grey shadows against the warm sun-kissed oranges and creams of the building.

Carol Loeb, SFCA
Collectively, Carol’s work is a contrast of the engineered or built environment to the wilderness. She works mainly in acrylics, usually blocking in dark and mid-tone areas first then adding thin layers of saturated colour to create luminosity and depth. The resulting realism goes beyond photographic representation of place.
"To capture these emotive qualities of the subject and have the image go beyond the purely representational, I often use contrasting saturated, complimentary colours to create a vibrancy and emphasis that goes beyond the pretty picture."
