Carl Owen expresses the spirit and treasures of New Mexico through his vast number of paintings of New Mexico’s landscapes, deep canyons, deserts and crumbling historic architecture. Owen’s ability to capture light and form on canvas fascinates those who have watched him morph into the gifted artist he is today. He has done several pencil drawings, soft pastels and oil pastels on paper and on canvas. He prepares forms with conte and charcoal pencils to be color arranged with soft pastels on canvas as the preparation for the oil painting. He prefers oil painting to any other medium. While in college, he did drawings and paintings for every applied technique class but gave them all away. Owen earned his A.A. at Riverside City College now known as Riverside Community College in Riverside, California in 1970. Carl Owen paintings are snapshots of life’s endless patterns, to be appreciated by all who see them. He is a master of light and color, using strong colors and bold brushstrokes. Though he takes artistic license for compositional and other purely aesthetic ends, he is an honest depicter of portraits and New Mexico’s sensational landscape.
