Caryl Pomales Reminds Us To Stay In Touch With Our Imagination And Curiosity! See Her Newest Artworks, Take An On-Line Workshop, Sign Up For Palette Knife Workshop In March

Caryl Pomales understands that an artist’s journey is equal parts studying technique and reawakening our childlike wonder and imagination. She reminds us to strip away the bricks of self-judgment, self-censorship, and “practicality” that build walls preventing us from coloring outside of the lines and seeing the world in a different light.  Caryl offers on-line workshops and will offer a palette knife painting workshop at the New Studio of the Visual Arts March 26/27.   The Rickie Report shares her newest abstract paintings and reminds you to sign up for her artsy newsletter! A portion of the proceeds from the sale of her original paintings are donated to carefully selected charities that care and support our environment and animals in need.

“Everyone starts off as an artist. The trick is remaining that way.” – Pablo Picasso

 

 

“An Ocean Of Mighty Mystery” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

Do you remember playing pretend as a child? The entire world was an adventure. Any backyard could become a magical realm, with each dewy blade of grass a possible home for a fairy; each towering oak tree a hideout for elves and dwarves; every last gust of wind the breath of a dragon. Our younger selves embraced the imaginative, without self-censoring and bringing ourselves “back to earth.” Somewhere in the process of growing older, we trade in this spirit of creative curiosity for strict practicality, and all too often, the infinite colors and dimensions seen by young eyes dim and fade.

An artist’s journey is equal parts studying technique and reawakening this childlike wonder and imagination. We have to strip away the bricks of self-judgment, self-censorship, and “practicality” that build walls preventing us from coloring outside of the lines and seeing the world in a different light.

 

 

“The Tropical Garden Parfait” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

Imagination is a beautiful thing, and I try to exercise mine every day! Though I often paint subjects that are based on my natural tropical surroundings, I use my imagination to capture the essence and feeling of these items in a dynamic and vibrant way that is more abstract than “realistic” in the standard sense of the word. I give myself permission to see the world around me in different colors that spark a feeling. Does a child coloring question every crayon he or she picks up, wondering if that’s the most realistic shade? Most often, no! He or she picks the color that gets the mind and heart going, whirring with creativity and the feeling the drawing ignites.

 

 

 

 

“No Sun Outlasts It’s Sunset” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

We spend too much time stifling our own imaginations. Today, I ask you to let yours soar. Give yourself the opportunity to see the world through a child’s eyes, and return to that magic. Remember: you were born with imagination and creativity, and as Picasso says, you started off as an artist. Today, try your hardest to hold on to that. You may enjoy seeing your backyard return to that magical realm once again!
