Remember a spring day when you were small? Remember racing across the lawn to a silent friend who was always there and waiting just for you? Remember a swing?

Watch this little towhead arc through the picture. Take her place in the swing and feel the rush of wind as you fall backwards through the air, skirting the ground and soaring up until you are face to face with the earth. Hold for a breathless beat and then fly forward, up, up, up, leading with your toes, tilting your head back until all you see is blue. Hold again for that instant when sky and wind stop, before the grip of the earth pulls you back and forth and back and forth and you remember the freedom of a swing!

Carolyn Blish
Whether recognized as an artist, wife, mother, grandmother, pilot, evangelist or even the "sketching cowgirl" on local television, Blish’s deep personal relationship with God draws her out of her studio to share her faith. The method she has found includes her paintings—not just of the Lord, but of serene shorelines, restful landscapes and children at play. Her formal art education was limited to a single two-week course, but her enthusiasm and desire to learn was unbounded. Even so, she credits watercolorist Edgar A. Whitney as the catalyst of her interest in painting design and structure. Until then, she had studied such other subjects as psychology, philosophy and comparative religion at Bradford Junior College. It wasn’t until she married Stanley Blish and moved to Delaware that her fine art career was created. There, looking for something to spruce up the wall of their first apartment, the newlywed decided to paint it herself. Following that auspicious beginning, Blish became a member of the American Watercolor Society, the American Artists’ Professional League and the Allied Artists of America, while winning awards from The National Arts Club and enjoying sold-out exhibitions and shows. Through her art, writing and speaking, she continues to praise Him in line, color and word. Most recently, her inspirational images have been shared with others with the publication of Drawing Closer: The Paintings and Personal Reflections of Carolyn Blish (The Greenwich Workshop Press).
