ARTIST STATEMENT
Lori D. Wendling 
I paint to escape into a place, a scene....an emotional space. It may take me
through memories or into a relaxing state of retreat.
I paint in both oil and pastels but have recently focused on pastels.
I am intrigued by the availability of intense colors and how they can altered by blending or layering.
Generally I use an acid-free sanded paper of medium grit.
I start with shapes of value in complementary colors to my vision of the final layers.
I set this block-in with an alcohol wash. From there,
l’ll start applying harder pastels and build up to using softer pastels, making larger, bolder strokes....
often as many as 15 layers in total.
My goal is that the value design draws you in from across the room
and that you are equally captured by the abstracted, close-up details.

For award-winning Cincinnati oil painter Carol MacConnell, art evolves through years of passionate learning.
Six days a week, she enters her Over-the-Rhine studio, MacConnell begins to envision the next piece.
Carol’s work has appeared in private and corporate collections throughout the world.
Originally known for her landscapes, MacConnell’s style was later brought to life
when she began painting ballerinas. MacConnell explains, “When I was a young girl growing up in rural Ohio,
I knew I wanted to be an artist. My school had a non-existent art program.
I saw an ad for a commercial art school giving out scholarships and all you had to do was "Draw Binky",
I was ecstatic! That might have been the beginning.
Since then I have received my BFA from Miami University and have continued to study
with some of the greatest living artists in this country.
In the community, for many years, MacConnell has worked with Artists Reaching Classrooms,
an inspirational program developed by the Taft Museum of Art.
Speaking to high school students, she steadily reaches out to inspire the next generation of local artists.
In addition, she has donated numerous paintings to local and national charities.
