“King of Kings” is a small piece in the gallery that helps celebrate this very season of Lent. That my spirituality is woven through all that I do–and paint is an understatement. I credit God almighty for giving me the gift of seeing life through the magnificent lens of an artist. More than some people, […]

Carole painting

This year has been a challenge for us all–understatement, right? And that includes Carole Foret Fine Art.

With the […]

Carole Foret in studio in France

What is it when an artist records a sense of place with her brush? I spent the better part of the summer in the countryside of France doing nothing but being spoiled living in a stunning old chateau, being cooked for and provided with a gorgeous, spacious bedroom and private studio. The estate was full […]

Gearing Up For 2019! As I arrive at 2019, I squeal a little bit inside, excited about my upcoming artist-in-residence traveling I’ll be doing this year. I’ve known for a few weeks that I have been awarded a most amazing opportunity, and I’m sharing it now. This coming June I take my brushes and paints for […]

An Impressionist? A Realist? A Modern artist? Who am I? I have been an artist much of my life–about 45 years or so since I knew I loved to draw and craved the smell of my Crayolas beyond what was normal.  My creative journey has had lots of time and experience to evolve. Having started […]

With all of the publicity I have graciously been given surrounding my current show at the Huntsville Botanical Garden, it has been interesting to get to know new clientele who don’t know my history in my art career in regard to art education. To help people get to know me more, about 6 years ago, […]

  The Huntsville Botanical Garden was so kind to host an art opening for me February 1 in their beautiful mezzanine gallery. And so many special people gathered for the opening night despite the less-than-desirable weather. Thanks to all of them, especially those who drove hours and hours to be there.  Yes, two friends did […]

  A question I am asked a lot in my life is “Do you paint everyday?” I always find that question fascinating as it is usually a 9 to 5-er asking it. It seems part of the answer would be that I am creative pretty much 24/7. But when it comes to having a career […]
