Ekphrastic Free Verse ~ Snow
Bernard Gieske, US Poet and Carol O'Malia, US Painter
Contemplation: a painting by Carol O’Malia, US
was born in Boston and is a native New Englander. She earned a
BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from the
University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. She is an art
instructor at Framingham State College. When not in her studio,
she can often be found wandering in and around woods and lakes.
Thus her creations of stunning “snowscapes”. Carol paints
ordinary objects and scenes and succeeds in conveying a sense of
inner quietness. At first you will see the stark beauty of her
paintings and, while lingering, you will begin to drink from her
well of emotions somewhere beneath the surface.
She is a versatile painter and has other works, including her "pillow" series and figurative paintings. The common theme in all her work is the attention paid to details of light and shadow. White is the most meaningful color for her. For more, go to:
