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.

Carole Foret Fine Art Gallery

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 […]

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 […]

  I had the honor of shooting this family last week. I knew it would be so much fun since I know Angela well and have photographed her and her sisters a few years ago. To say that this family loves each other is an understatement. The joy, fun and cutting up they do transcends […]

  I hope you’re having a fabulous summer! Traveling is the cornerstone of most people’s summer plans, as we all love to see new parts of the nation or world. This time of year gets me thinking of Italy, a place where I’ve been many times. Cortona. This is a sunset shot about 5 years […]
