Artist Spotlight

Trident is excited to display the work of Carol Reynolds.

From Carol: “Once upon a time…. I was a child with charcoal colored hair and a sad face. I was never sad when I was creating beautiful things and having adventures. I would walk barefoot in creeks, catch fireflies and tree frogs.

“My heart ached for being loved and recognized for who I was…a curious creative child. I continued to climb trees, create beautiful things and ride a Flexible Flyer down the street at dangerous speeds.

“I went to schools that did not have art classes. I continued to create, but never experienced formal art training.

“I was a sensitive child, and felt the pain of others, as I experienced it myself. I tried to do what I could to help others help themselves. As the saying goes “Love is the answer”.

“A few of the things I needed to learn were to trust more, live in the moment, forgive, and be thankful for all that I have . I know that the only reality is “now” ….not yesterday or tomorrow. I try to live that way, creating in the moment and sharing what I love.

“I am so grateful for the journey that I have been given.”
