CELTIC ART OF MICHAEL CARROLL
"In the exquisite eighth-century manuscripts of Kells and Lindisfarne I found a treasure trove which had largely been ignored by the art world. Was it not possible to revive the style, could anything new be done? The research of J. Romilly Allen, George Bain and others had revealed the methods of the ancients; armed with this knowledge I began work on my own designs, incorporating elements of the old Celtic manuscripts." -- Michael Carroll, artist's statement from his web site,www.mccelticdesign.com
PAINTINGS BY DON HOLZSCHUH
"When you're painting outdoors you're in what I like to call the world's largest studio. It's just you before this whole
creation, at this one place and time. I think every artist when they're in the studio, is actually trying to re-create how
beautiful nature is, with it's light, forms colors. But when painting outside it's all before, it's all around you at all times.
You just have to look to see it there before you."
-- Don Holzschuh, Selected Text
From an article that appeared in the magazine
In The March Issue, 1992
