Crampton is included in the Studio Gallery show for the month of June called "Make it Work" featuring workers and tools of the trade. Crampton is represented by a plein air landscape of the Longshoremen's Strike where the bay was full of unloaded ships. Please go by and support this gallery!

Crampton is now a member of Daylighted.com which shows art digitally and sells glicées of art.

Crampton's painting studio is open any time by appointment. Feel free to come by and see what is happening! Right now there's a giant tower of chairs being painted. The studio will be open to the public again in October. [Directions to the studio: Building 101, Studio 1223, behind the main flagpole.]

Crampton's most recent series of paintings includes her pet rabbits as subjects as well as other animals. This was inspired by 18th Century still lifes. Crampton starts direct with a brush and adds color glazes to build up the scene. The animals are painted from life, if possible. Carolyn is also adding toys and other items to the scenes.

Crampton illustrated a children's book, Dumbunny. The hardcover is available from the artist, in bookstores, Amazon, and in Apple iBooks store for iPad3, from Howell Park Press.
