The Art Store
artist Carol May

This is my Art Store of the artist Carol May. My art paintings are usually nature related. My goal is to share the beauty and wonder of the awesome gifts of God. I have beautiful paintings and prints available.

I originally learned how to paint with oils. Then one year my sister gave me a calendar of watercolor paintings. It intrigued me. I gave watercolors a try and loved them.

Now I switch back and forth between painting with oil colors and watercolors. I love them both. I like the rich classic beauty of oil paintings and the freedom of watercolor paintings.

You may choose a print size from 6" - 48", depending on the size of the original painting.

Original Paintings
For Sale

My beautiful oil paintings are on stretched archival canvas. I use high quality pigments bound with alkyd resin. They look exactly like oil paintings.

Alkyd paintings are referred to as oil paintings and that is what I call them in the art store. I am very pleased with this media. I have been using alkyd paints for more than 20 years. 

When I started doing artistic watercolor paintings, I used paper. The paintings were framed under glass. If the paper gets moisture on it, it possibly could be ruined.

Ampersand came up with a solution. They applied archival clay to a hardboard and called it Aquabord. When the painting is dry, I apply a protective spray. Then it may be framed without glass.

Original Paintings available in the Art Store of Carol May

"Paddlin' Pelican"

I love wildlife and pelicans have always amazed me from the first time I saw one.

They aren't afraid to come up close and paddle around looking at you.

Beautiful Hummingbird Nature Painting

"Ruby-throat Hummingbird"

The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is the hummingbird of the eastern United States.

Landscape painting of barns, original artist Carol May

I did “Country Barns” on a trip to New England when the trees were in fall color. I was intrigued by the shadows and sunlight on the front barn. The barns are different styles as happens when they are built years apart.

This painting was privileged to win a "Best of Show" at a local show.

24x30 oil on canvas - 1000.00

Beautiful nature painting of Monarch Butterfly

"Monarch on Daisies"

The Monarch Butterfly is the most well known butterfly in the United States. I had the privilege of seeing large numbers of them in Mexico on their migration route. 

Daisies have been my favorite ever since I was a child. I enjoyed painting this favorite of mine.

Daisy Flowers are favorite flowers for the butterflies.

I recently moved across country. And when I found out that I was moving I did this painting. 

I knew where I was going had Road Runners. What fun!
