“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.

Noelle McCarthy’s Endless Curiosity With Nature Can Be Seen At New Solo Exhibit At Eissey Campus Theatre Lobby Gallery In Palm Beach Gardens

Noelle McCarthy‘s “A Tribute to Nature” a Solo Art Exhibit brings the viewer up close with some stunning images. The Eissey Campus Theatre Lobby Gallery  exhibit opens April 2 and runs through May 1, 2022.  From her colorations to her innate understanding of her subjects, this Free Exhibit is not to be missed!  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Noelle McCarthy, based in Delray Beach, FL. was born and raised in Clifden, Ireland, a small rural town on Ireland’s remote and rugged west coast known as “The Wild Atlantic Way”.  As a child she was surrounded by nature, many pets, seaside trips, mushroom picking in the fields with her Dad, and Sunday drives in the countryside with her Mom.  “I was captivated by art and any type of creativity at school, although art classes were few and far between.  In my teens, I was immersed in the horse culture going to shows and enjoying rides in the woods and open fields in Graiguenamanagh.  I later moved to Dublin to work as a Secretary and attend the College of Marketing and Design at night.  Wanderlust struck and then I just had to travel and did so for years, starting by working in Paris, London, Asia, Thailand and Australia and eventually ended up settling in the US”.

 

 

 

 

 

“Cactus Sunburst” by Noelle McCarthy

 

 

 

Her interest in art blossomed during classes with Talin Lyman.  With a curiosity and deep connection with nature, her mission is to bring awareness to the need to protect and preserve wildlife and their habitats. Noelle’s first commission was to paint 100 Hibiscus Blooms for the remodel of The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, FL. A regular in Juried Group Art Exhibits, this is Noelle’s first Solo Exhibition – “A Tribute to Nature”.

 

 

 

 

Noelle tells The Rickie Report, ” With each painting there is always something that catches my eye, whether it is a pose or stance, striking color, or composition. My paintings are very personal and related to a meaningful worthy cause. The emotion can be empathy towards an animal and my desire to help, or it can be just a peaceful scene that I don’t want to leave behind.  As I explore the natural world I anticipate what my next creation will be.   Each painting is like an extension of me and there’s no better honor than for others to see or feel what I am trying to convey while appreciating nature’s beauty.  I want viewers to be touched by an inner connection that translates to their own lives.”

 

 

 

“Flamingo Stand Tall” by Noelle McCarthy

 

 

 

Working and traveling throughout Europe, Asia and Australia provided her with influences of diverse landscapes. Noelle loves the adventure of exploring and trips to the Everglades, Wildlife Refuges and Sanctuaries provide endless inspiration. She paints en plein air on Everglades Day annually at Arthur R. Marshall National Wildlife Refuge and takes part in Endangered Exhibitions supporting wildlife organizations.  She shares, “I participate annually in the Center for Great Apes Endangered Art Contest, to promote and support their efforts to save animals”.

 

 

 

Painting in acrylic works well for her as it allows Noelle to paint boldly and vibrantly (and she likes that it dries quickly, so that colors can be layered with less wait time and with more control of the texture and consistency). Noelle’s painting compositions vary from up close and personal, to wide open landscapes leading you in. She is drawn to color, flow and movement and her style is Interpretative Realism sharing highly detailed subjects, but her work remains Expressive.  Attending an Artist Residency at Desert Mountain Retreat in New Mexico provided peace, solitude and much inspiration while experiencing the landscape of Georgia O’Keefe who she admires, along with South African wildlife artist, James Stroud.

 

 

 

“New Year’s Sunrise” by Noelle McCarthy

 

 

Noelle was featured in New Times “10 Best Visual Artists in Palm Beach County” and most recently featured in “Art Adventures of the Palm Beaches ‐ The Art of Making Place” TV show and currently LIVE “Creativity Takes Flight” show on PBC TV Channel 20. She is a member of  Artists of Palm Beach County, Plein Air Palm Beach Meet Ups, Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, and Friends of Arthur R. Marshall National Wildlife Refuge.

 

 

 

“Home Sweet Osprey” by Noelle McCarthy

 

 

 

Noelle’s artwork can be seen at the The FLOW Exhibition at Palm Beach International Airport Art Gallery through June 13, 2022 – celebrating the beauty, mystery, joy and life-sustaining benefits there are to experience throughout Palm Beach County’s diverse aquatic ecosystems. She is also in the Member’s Exhibit, Artists of Palm Beach County at Artworks, Northwood, now through April 11, 2022.

 

 

Awards:

 

  • 2019 at Arthur R. Marshall National Wildlife Refuge Annual “Loxahatchee Visions” Art Contest (Judge’s Honorable Mention for “New Year’s Sunset”).
  • 2019 at Artists of Palm Beach County “Members Exhibit” (Judge’s Honorable Mention for “Great Falls Reflections” and Featured Artist in  “Members Choice” Exhibit – for “Elephants in the Wild” & “Malayan Tiger”)

The collage can be seen “In Person” for the first time at Hatch 1121, LULA Art Gallery April 29 – June 13, 2022.
