Brush Strokes of Cara Erskine

Cara Erskine is a local artist and professor that does some very nice, on-the-verge-of-abstract work...some may say impressionist. Erskine is currently an Adjunct Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University where she teaches Painting and Concept Studio II: Time and Space. She also teaches Printmaking, Color Theory, and Drawing at Robert Morris University. Her works, both still-life and life, exemplifies the thought of each brush stroke and deep layers, although hard to tell without seeing in person. These paintings are really meant to be viewed from a few feet away because if you stand up close the work becomes an abstraction of brush strokes. Very nice stuff all around!

Be sure to visit Cara's blog where you can stay updated on her shows and works! Her next show is at Allegheny College in Meadville in September.
