Although she's done everything ranging from oils to acrylics to pastels, she's focused lately on watercol- ors, along with etchings and block prints. Most of her work is small, and some are miniatures. A series of beach scenes show open expanses of CARR uninterrupted sand and water. Some feature an occasional light- house or palm tree. Many of the beaches portrayed are local, near her summer studio in Dewey Beach; others are from St. Croix where Carr spends her winters enjoying the differences in the Caribbean waters and the various beaches of the Virgin Islands. Besides observing the sun and sand, Carr also gathers underwa- ter research on dive trips. "It's dif- ferent water, a different kind of beach [than in Delaware], but they're all soothing, calming." In addition to her seascapes and underwater scenes, Carr has a whimsical series of etchings - lit- tle fish with tiny beaded earrings, cats wearing small beaded neck- laces and her "Romeo and Juliet" fish. With names like "Ocean Princess" and "Queen of the Sea," Carr expresses her playful side. Her work can be seen locally at her family's restaurant, Two Seas, in Dewey Beach. Her next group shows are at the Rehoboth Art League, and the show at the Children's Beach House in Lewes in December. She'll also travel to Washington, Baltimore and Pennsylvania to participate in Jean Doran's painting of "Peaceful Vista" shows a coastal marsh scene. juried professional shows with her - miniatures during the next few months. Carr can be reached at 227-2610 or 644-9472, or at Doran attracted to wildlife Jean Doran works in her studio behind her home at 138 Kings Highway, where she displays a variety of her paintings. Doran's attraction to wildlife, especially birds, shows in her portraits of herons, egrets and geese. Working in oils and acrylics, she captures local landscapes and seascapes. "I like the fluidity of oils," Doran said, but lately she has begun to expand her work with acrylics due to developing an unfortunate allergy to the oils. Focusing mostly on fine art painted on canvas, Doran contin- ues to paint some furniture, typi- cally small occasional tables, cap- turing local scenes or wildlife. Much of her work is done on commis- sion. A mem- ber of the Lewes Historic DORAN Preservation Commission, Doran is especially fond of older buildings and architecture, and says, "I paint a lot of house com- missions." Her recent pet com- missions included a close-up of a boxer's face. She also does por- trait commissions, citing Grayson Heckert as being one of her favorites. "He has such a perky, mischievous looking face." Doran displays her work at the member's gallery of the Rehoboth Art League. She will participate in their upcoming shows as well as in the Children's Beach House show in Lewes in December and the Lewes Historical Society show in February. This is her fifth year on tour.
