"Children and beaches just go together. You could say it's my favorite subject. I love barns, landscapes, flowers and the abstract but I keep coming back again, answering the siren call, to paint children lost in wonder at their surroundings.

"This girl is pausing to look at something wondrous. You can't even see the sea beyond her. I was planning to put it in but I didn't want to draw the eye away from her. I guess they're called sea oats because the heads of the grass look like grains of oats. You'll find their jaunty little heads nodding in the breeze on southern beaches."

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).
