Carlene Rentschler About

I have been painting for more than twenty years, oils, watercolors and pastels. I am self taught by attending several workshops of my favorite artists. Teaching has been my favorite thing to do for several years now. It is a reward in iself to share my knoweldge with those who want to develop their talents. 2 comments


I have been a member of several art associations from New Mexico and Florida. While in New Mexico, I was pleased to have two of my paintings accepted into the annual Fine Arts Show at the New Mexico State Fair. I also won 1st in pastel at the Albuquerque Art League juried show.

Teaching has become my favorite thing to do for several years. My goal as a teacher is to inspire my students to develop their own very best quality.

Pastels are my very favorite medium. My workshop teacher, Albert Handell says, "I found pastels to be much more alive, unpredictable and fresh". This is why I like them for my landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes, a medium that is alive, fresh, and unpreditably fun!
