I am an impressionistic temperature oil painter. A beautiful use of color and tonal interplay and great abstract shapes and brushwork are important to my work. I want viewers to experience feelings of happiness and to be left with an appreciation of the beauty and awe that surrounds us every day on this earth. I expect my work to be appealing, sensitive and to have an inherent gorgeousness about it, perhaps even a touch of spice!

Caroline Goldsmith was born in the city of Sydney Australia 1964. Goldsmith was busy creating since the age of three. Teachers reported on her love of color and line. 

At 18 she started her professional art career with an art apprenticeship with Miadna publishing company.Goldsmith studied fine art at East Sydney Technical College, now called The National Art School, at night while working as a finished artist during the day. 
Completing two years of drawing and color and design with honors.1997 Goldsmith emerged onto the professional Sydney art scene and exhibited in juried shows winning several awards and enjoyed recognition when she was recommended to apply for membership to the Royal Art Society. Goldsmith applied in 1998 and was accepted by the North Sydney Council. 

Subsequently, Goldsmith displayed and sold her work at Lavender Bay Art Gallery North Sydney as an exhibiting member of the Royal Art Society.Goldsmiths art world was uprooted when she moved to USA in May 2000 with her husband and daughter. Another decade later Goldsmith joined the Monticello Arts Council and re-emerged with a successful solo exhibition of landscapes at Red House Gallery, Monticello Illinois.
She rallied with other plein air painters and found a community of artists in her own hometown. She has encouraged plein air practices and gatherings of professional artists to support each other and grow as artists together through her local arts council. 
An important part of Caroline's development as a painter has been her continuing education, studying and applying the teachings of master plein air and studio oil painters. 
She is committed to painting full-time.
On frequency of plein air painting.I have been painting plein air regularly since 2012. I was also painting plein air in the early 90s with my mentor. I have attended plein air events regularly since 2017, and the events are typically 5 consecutive days although there is one in Missouri that runs 12 days and I attend that each year. I do at least one a month and sometimes the entire month is a string of events back to back. 
When not traveling I get out to paint 3 days a week. So about 70% of my painting is outdoors including commission work. In colder months it is a bit less however I do get out and paint through the coldest midwest winters for shorter time frames or from the comfort of my car. 

I started a plein air painters group in 2019 and have maintained a calendar for weekly paintouts for them to encourage and share the ups and downs of outdoor painting. The group flourished in 2020 with the need for a sense of purpose and it helped many get out and see other artists in a safe environment. I had up to 10 people painting and about 6 regulars. I did this voluntary after being asked to put something together by other artists that were wanting to go out in a group. Its success and the enthusiasm has surprised me.
