Caren Hackman, artist

 

Caren Hackman tells The Rickie Report, “My deep spiritual connection to the yoga practice set me on the course for creating the YogaPainter works. A painful injury sidelined me for several years during which I felt angry and depressed. Yoga saved my life! As I learned more about the physical aspects of yoga, a personal evolution, a catharsis, began. Yoga practice help me recover and re-engage with life. As the spiritual essence of the practice became clear, I was drawn to share that passion through my art”.

 

 

 

 

This spiritually motivated series resists the confines of framed canvas and is hung like a classic Asian scroll. The yoga pieces are all on canvas.  Caren’s personal yoga practice helps her feel more connected to the natural world. “Creation of art work that combines challenging poses with images of the nature’s leafy growth or the eclipse comes almost instinctively to me. I hope you find inspiration from this and spread the joy of inner peace”.

“Roses” by Patricia Schwimmer

 

 

 

 

Patricia is a Toronto native, and her childhood vacations were always spent at the beach. A recent move to Palm Beach Gardens, FL fulfilled her desire to live and work near the water. The natural beauty of the ocean and its surroundings have had a major impact on Schwimmer’s color palette and expressive brushwork.

Patricia Schwimmer tells The Rickie Report, “I began my journey into abstraction a few years ago, after painting realism for many years. My work is very much about process. and somehow I am not satisfied unless the work has a history of layers. I am aware that it is the spontaneous and accidental marks that are the most exciting, whether they lend themselves to furthering the composition or create tension in the work. I long for a little disturbance in the overall calm of the composition…an area where the eye wanders that may not go with the rest of the painting and begs me to wonder why”.

 

 

 

 

Small work by Patricia Schwimmer

 

 

 

 

 

She understands that it is important that the piece be visually appealing as well as interesting enough to linger over, taking cues from her internal experience to sense when a painting is complete. She says, “Lately, with all the noise in the World, I am enjoying quiet shifts and soft colors in a painting; getting transported by nuances and the grace of being present to what comes. Painting has become a metaphor for living because if I am only willing to scratch the surface and do what is easy, the work will reflect that. An openness to tap into the deep waters of my creative stream will yield something much richer and way more interesting”.

 

 

“Lazy Circles in the Sky” by Patricia Schwimmer

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patricia Schwimmer has lead workshops in creative painting at various venues including The Georgian Bay School of Arts and the Chautauqua Institute. The natural beauty of the ocean and its surroundings have had a major impact on her color palette and expressive brushwork. Her work has been featured in numerous publications worldwide including Michelle Cassou and Stewart Cubley’s book “Life, Paint, and Passion.” She was featured at Art Palm Beach International, the 2016 Designers’ Show House in WPB, and in Nantucket Island through JF Art Gallery. Patricia is a featured artist at The MAE Gallery in Delray Beach, FL.
