Carly Hardy Fine Art

Stories from my childhood of a native American great-grandmother played thru my mind as a child. I often tied a headband with a feather around my head and riding my stick pony would pretend to be a young native girl out on an adventure. A couple of years ago when invited to present my artwork with several other contemporary painters, I thought about what concept would be more original then my usual landscapes. The images in my mind took me back to that childhood and the stories I had heard. Thus the series for Ancestry was conceived. The paintings for that show were sold in the first week and a later piece sold before it was completed! At the time, I thought the series was finished.

 

But that was not to be the case. The series has taken on a life of its own and the paintings come from a place deep within me. Some call it intuition....some say it's the spirits of my ancestors speaking....I just know it's a passion that's within that cannot be silenced. The new works are called the Ancient Series and who know where it will lead me.
