"Carol Santora: The Color of Cows" is the first Santora Fine Art publication, written with 'An Appreciation' and biographical notes by George A. Douglas.
Illustrated with forty full color images 'Carol Santora: The Color of Cows' presents an impressive body of Santora’s pastel art work created between December 2006 and February 2009.
“When I saw Carol’s extensive collection of Holsteins, Herefords, Guernseys, Scottish Highlanders, and Black Angus, I honestly thought her pictorial observations—facial expressions and stances—simply brilliant and delightful… Her love of animals—even their humor—is unmistakably apparent on each page of 'Carol Santora: The Color of Cows'.”
~ George A. Douglas, former editor of the Boston Post
Animals are my muse and the inspiration for my paintings. I feel a special connection to animals that is difficult for me to put into words. It is a connection on a higher plane – on a spiritual level. I consider myself a link between animals and humans; creating art of animals is what I was chosen to do. My expressionistic style reveals my passion for painting their spirit, and my life-long love for them.
