“Welcome to my world where abstract art speaks in colors and emotions, a journey that began in childhood with a simple box of Crayola crayons. Those early days under the sky, watching clouds shift and evolve, ignited my lifelong passion for color and hues”.   ~  Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

 

“Mystical Veils of Intrigue” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

Caryl tells The Rickie Report, “The use of pastel colors is deliberate, aiming to soften the space it inhabits with a gentle, uplifting ambiance. These hues reflect the subtle yet profound moments of joy we find in our daily lives, mirroring the way light illuminates and transforms. The fun shapes scattered throughout the painting serve as vessels of spontaneity and playfulness, reminding us to embrace the unexpected twists and turns of life with a light heart”.

 

 

Her recent painting, “Lights Me Up” is not just a visual experience; it’s an invitation to reconnect with the parts of ourselves that thrive on creativity, wonder, and delight. It encourages us to find the light within and let it guide us through the darkness.  In this piece, she hopes to offer a haven of inspiration and serenity, a reminder that even in our most abstract moments, there is beauty to be found and light that forever shines through.  “Lights Me Up” is an exploration into the realm of joy and vitality, captured through the fluidity of abstract art. This painting embodies the essence of what truly energizes and revitalizes the spirit, translated onto canvas through a symphony of fun shapes and soothing pastel colors.

 

 

Artist, Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

Caryl goes on to explain, “My art is deeply influenced by the ever-changing light playing amongst the clouds, transforming their edges into a kaleidoscope of golden hues, soft pinks, and brilliant whites. This dynamic interplay, coupled with the vibrant tropical blooms of my surroundings, continually fuels my inspiration.  Travel has further enriched my palette, painting my vision with experiences from America’s National Parks to African safaris, from Australia’s cultural diversity to New Zealand’s serene landscapes, and Europe’s historic elegance. Each destination, including the unique Galapagos ecosystems and the vivid Caribbean life, has woven its essence into my work”.

 

 

 

The most profound impact on my art came during my mother’s battle with Alzheimer’s. As words became scarce, our communication shifted to a silent language of images. This experience highlighted art’s power as a universal medium, transcending spoken words. My artwork became our bridge, connecting us through shared emotions and memories.

 

 

 

“Barcelona” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

In my studio, you’ll find pieces that are conversations, stories, and connections. Each embodies a journey, an emotion, a piece of the world seen through my eyes. These creations are testaments to our unspoken bonds. As you explore these pieces, I invite you to find one that resonates with your story, a work that speaks to you in the silent yet powerful language of color, shape, and texture. Let it be a part of your journey, connecting with you in ways words cannot.

 

 

 

A portion of the proceeds from original paintings and workshop sales are donated directly to carefully selected charities.  Together, we can change the world, one brush stroke at a time.

Growing up in South Florida, Mitch learned to appreciate all the natural beauty the state has to offer. Mitch  tells The Rickie Report “I have been interested in art since childhood and eventually combined the occupation of travel nursing with painting. The job experience allowed me to explore diverse cultures and art forms, as I was exposed to different environments, climates and wildlife. As a certified diver, I have been face to face with manatees, sea turtles, manta rays and spectacular creatures of the sea represented in my art.”
