    ROSES! Have you done a rose print(s) that would blend with the color theme of “Old Country Roses” china pattern? (Burgundy, Pink & Yellow combination) Had lamps made from two of their large vases for my guest bedroom night tables. Picture(s) would make a great accessory in that room!

    Have your BIRD collection; mostly the pinks and blues, i.e., 50+ from ceiling to floor on two walls!

    Hello, Ellen…

    Sorry to be so long in responding…I’m answering for mom, since she seldom uses the Internet….she does tell me that she doesn’t have an original or print that would blend with the “Old Country Roses” china pattern…mom loves to paint flowers, but doesn’t paint roses very much at all.

    We’re not sure what you mean by mom’s “BIRD collection”??? But it sounds like you have a lot of her work and she always like to hear from people who enjoy her work!

    I just acquired one of your paintings of a single bluebird on a branch with orange berries. it is dated 84 and is number 80/500. Does it have a title? or story behind it? thank you so much.

      Hello, Linda Keffer,

      Thanks for your message. Birds are a favorite subject of mom’s, and she often paints birds that are blue but seldom bluebirds. She likes the bluejay and titmouse and will sometimes paint warblers blue instead of gray if that fits what else she is doing in the painting. As she says, she paints birds as she sees them, not always as they are in nature.

      This 1984 print you have acquired is an early one of mom’s, and she doesn’t remember it specifically. Would you be able to email us a photo at and that might helps us identify it. Mom has been very prolific over the years and numerous prints have been licensed from her work as well.

      Thanks again for contacting us, and we hope to hear from you again!

    I have an original acrylic Owl with Young that has Carolyn Shores Wright written on the back. Did Ms Wright do this type work?

    • Jay Wright September 25, 2013 at 2:02 pm #

      Hello, and thank you for your interest in mom’s work. Very early in her career mom used acrylics, and she has painted various owls over the years, so this is probably her work. She tells me that in those early years she usually signed her work CS Wright; does that signature appear on the painting? Perhaps someone else wrote the artist’s full name on the back. We would love to see a photo of this early work if you would care to send it to Thanks again for contacting us and all the best to you.–Jay Wright

      Hello, Deborah Drum, and thanks for contacting us about the artwork of Carolyn Shores Wright. Mom has always signed her original work, and the copyright symbol and last two numbers of the year are included. That information will be included when prints are run. If there are two signatures, that indicates a print that mom has individually signed–thus a signed, numbered print. Numbering might be something like “50/800” which would indicate the 50th print of a run of 800. Mom’s work has been licensed for many products over the years, including many prints; we are unable to give any current value information.Thanks again for contacting us; mom always likes to hear from people who enjoy her work! –Jay Wright

    Hi There, I recently purchased a beautiful framed and matted print with the word Celebration above two signatures of Carolyn Shores Wright; the first followed by “81” and second followed by what looks like “Ap”. It is a picture of two pink and blue colored birds with draping ribbons above them. The picture is primarily in light blues and pinks. Can you tell me anything about this….I think it is a print, but insure. I have seen other artwork but the artist on EBAY for $150. Do you know anything about the picture I have or it’s value? My niece was recently married and the artwork I have reminds me of two lovebirds and thought she would like it. I appreciate any information you may be able to tell me. I could not find another similar on this site. Thanks for your advice. Sincerely, Tracey

      My comment has many typos above. Sorry for not proofreading

    • Jay Wright April 30, 2014 at 4:23 pm #

      Hello and thank you for contacting us. I’m responding for mom. “Celebration” is a fairly early painting of mom’s; the “81” should be preceded by a “c” in a circle, indicating a copyright date of 1981. What you have is indeed a print. One of the signatures is included in the print run; the second signature means mom actually signed the print you have. “AP” indicates “artist print”; typically, the artist receives a certain number of copies from a print run from their work. Over the years mom has painted thousands of works, many of which have been licensed for hundreds of products, including many prints. I’m afraid we can’t offer any information on current price of any of those items.

      Thanks again for contacting us. Mom always likes to hear from people who appreciate her work!

    I received two prints. One is number 383/500 done in 86 with two birds with straw hats and bandanas on fencing wire and the other is number 823/100 done in 83 of a baby bird on a limb with a ladybug. Can you tell me about these pictures. They are so adorable. I love
    your work.

    • Jay Wright July 24, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

      Thank you for contacting us. The items you have are “Pardners” and “Look Mom, a Bug!’ These two pieces are in mom’s series “Bird Life” which includes a number of humorous bird pictures she has painted over the years. You can see many others at her Etsy and ArtFire shops as well as this site.

    I have a print with your signature in both the copy and pencil dated 87.
    It is named “Pecking Order” but it is NOT “Pecking Order ll” it does not have the birds sitting on the basket but rather all on top of the other . Can u give me any info on this print? I have not been able to find anything in my search about this print . My assumption is it is an earlier print than the “Pecking Order ll”
    Thanks so much !

    • Jay Wright December 14, 2014 at 4:09 pm #

      Thank you for contacting us. Yes, “Pecking Order” was the first one, and because of its success mom’s licensing company at the time asked for something similar. She did not want to just more or less repeat the first one, so she added the latticework and different expressions for the second one. Both versions are still available in different form on a note pad and a greeting card from Leanin’ Tree Thanks again for your interest in mom’s work.

    I have a rose panel, but haven’t been able to locate it online. Wondering what it might be worth. It’s signed by carolyn shores wright.

    • Jay Wright May 20, 2017 at 1:26 pm #

      Hello and thank you for your inquiry. This item sounds like one of mom’s, but without seeing an image we can’t say for sure. Over the years mom’s work has been licensed for hundreds of items, including many prints. Whether your item is an original or a print, we have no information about its current value.–Jay Wright
