"Beauty and soul inspire me. It's everywhere - a moment in time in a landscape or the fleeting look in a person's gaze. This is what I paint."
American Artist, Caron Staney is from Kingwood, Texas and has studied Political Science at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas.
"I study the Texas landscape and express my emotions about it through paint.
My paintings capture history. My husband and I were in Rockport, Texas two days before Hurricane Harvey struck. There was an eerie calm in the clouds hovering over the landscape. My painting, Rockport Before Hurricane Harvey, was a finalist in the 3rd Annual Conroe Art League Invitational juried competition February 2018. It was also selected as one of 23 finalists in a nationwide competition co-sponsored by the Witte Museum in San Antonio, Texas and the San Antonio Art League in honor of The Art of Texas: 250 Years.
I am inspired by my garden. Two flowers were growing so closely together that their petals turned in a spectacular show of beauty. My painting, "Red Gazanias," was selected as one of 15 international artists to be part of a New York-based gallery's online exhibit, "Flowers and Gardens."
In a visit to Midland, Texas, I met three Texas oilmen swapping stories about their younger days in the west Texas oilfield. The Midland Reporter-Telegram wrote a feature article about my painting, 'Good Oil Days'."
