“The Mermaid’s Pearls” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

“Mistakes” and “Blunders” as Feedback!

 

 

How do YOU define a mistake, and why does that word have a negative connotation?

I believe in the power and beauty of mistakes. I believe that failures are feedback. I believe in the positivity of errors. I want you to as well, both as an artist and in your daily life!

 

Learning is nothing more than a series of decisions and actions that provide you with feedback. Infants take a few shaky steps and fall down a hundred time when learning to walk. When learning to ride a bike, children tumble over before finding their balance. Students misspell words and mix up letters before piecing together the alphabet and learning to read. Getting these things “wrong” early on in life rarely causes distress, discouragement, or anger. These “mistakes” are shaken off as the infant tries again, getting closer to walking with each attempt; as the kid gets back on the bike without the training wheels; till the students finally are able to get through an entire book. The “errors” are learned from and aren’t dwelled upon!

 

 

 

“The Charm of Luberon” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

At some point, whether from fear of what others are thinking, from societally or personally opposed pressure to meet arbitrary benchmarks, or from plain insecurity, so many of us find ourselves fearful of failure and dwelling on our mistakes. We’ve stopped looking at “mistakes” and “failure” as feedback and a learning experience. Lessons and opportunities to grow are true gifts! Any time you attempt something that doesn’t go the way you wanted it to, you are provided with the chance to learn. This is not a bad thing, it is beautiful!

 

As an artist, I value these opportunities for many reasons. First and foremost, the only true mistake you can make on a work of art is quitting. How many paintings were caused by “mistakes?”Julia Margaret Cameron, a famous Victorian-Era photographer, developed her signature “style”accidentally. Her hallmark of fame was her out-of-focus photographs and smeared images! So many other artists develop their taste and style after things went off-course and unplanned. Lean into these “imperfections;” see the beauty in the stray brushstroke, the color that turned out differently than you’d hoped, or the splattered paint!

 

 

“With Joy” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

Second, there are no true mistakes in art. The sooner you embrace this, the more you’ll see your practice flourish! Letting go of the pressure to be “perfect” and avoid “failure” makes painting more joyful, fun, and inspiring. Do not be afraid of things turning out differently than you’d intended!

 

Third, embrace and learn from the things you’ve tried and don’t like. If you aren’t happy with the way a painting turned out, identify the things you’d like to work on. Learn from this feedback. Do you need to work on your values? Great! Now you know! Do you want to work on your brushstrokes? The painting you’re unhappy with is a benchmark for you, and now you know which direction to go! Each “mistake” and “failure” is an opportunity to check in, learn, and grow.

Try letting go of being a perfectionist, and start believing in the power and beauty of making “mistakes”.

 

“Perfectionism is not the same thing has striving to be your best. Perfectionism is the belief that if we live perfect, look perfect, and act perfect, we can minimize or avoid the pain of blame, judgement, and shame. It’s a shield. It’s a twenty-ton shield that we lug around thinking it will protect us when, in fact, it’s the thing that’s really preventing us from flight.” ― Brené Brown

Painting as Life’s Great Companion

 

“Painting is a companion with whom one may hope to walk a great part of life’s journey.” -Winston Churchill

 

Caryl Pomales tells The Rickie Report, “Art has been a treasured companion in my life since early childhood, when I discovered my love for creating vibrant and colorful pieces on any paper or canvas I could get my hands on. Painting has stuck by my side as a close friend during my diversified career paths, in which I explored different fields but couldn’t devote all my time and energy to my true passion. Finally, art has been a long-time friend I’ve been able to reconnect with, greeting me with open arms and welcoming me back, as I’ve made it my career”.

 

 

“Rose” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

“I personally love thinking of painting as a companion in life. This has felt remarkably applicable in my journey, as it has been a comfort, a joy, and a judgment-free pleasure that I’ve been able to return to time and time again every step of the way. Like a trusted and true companion, my relationship with painting has evolved as my life experience has grown and expanded. Our “conversation topics” and “dialogues” have broadened as I’ve explored more of the world and broadened my horizons. As I have gone on journeys across the globe, I am constantly thinking of my tried-and-true companion. I collect images with this in mind, snapping pictures that inspire me, keeping an eye out for potential subjects, and noticing and appreciating the colors, shapes, people, and animals that surround me. No matter where in the world I have been, I always return home ready to paint”.

 

“Picasso’s Virtue of Curiosity” by Caryl Pomales

 

A true passion sticks with you loyally, and is not easy to shake. My personal story serves as evidence of that. Despite my diversified careers, each fulfilling and successful in its own way, I have always found my way back to painting as my companion and true passion. This love, present from my days on the playground, sketching animals in colorful crayons and markers, never dwindled across the years, and has been present throughout a huge portion of my life’s journey.

 

Untitled by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

Winston Churchill profoundly noted how painting can accompany you throughout your journey, and I have found this to be an absolute truth in my life. I hope that, whatever your passion may be, you’re able to bring it along with you on your path!

 

 

“Cheerful Blush” by Caryl Pomales

Caryl Pomales Shares The Beauty And Tranquility Of Autumn With Paintings, Musings, And A New 2019 Calendar Of Artistic Images

Caryl Pomales brings us autumn with beauty, stillness and a sense of gratitude with her vibrant acrylic paintings. Read her “Artsy Tips & Insights” (free by email) AND order her new 2019 Calendar with 12 images and inspirational quotes.  When you sign up for one of Caryl’s classes, workshops, or make a purchase, she donates a percentage to carefully selected charities that care and find loving homes for less fortunate pets.  Let’s talk about gratitude!  Let’s talk about giving back and supporting original art created locally!  The Rickie Report shares the details and some photos here.

Caryl   Pomales   Fine   Art

 

 

Fine artist, Caryl Pomales

Caryl Pomales tells The Rickie Report, “There is so much beauty, stillness, and gratitude to be found in the moments of serenity at my easel. When life is hectic, I find my peace while painting. Creating a work of art and sharing it with my friends and followers fills my life and my soul with calm and joy”.

 

 

“River Birch” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

She goes on, “Spreading these positive feelings with others is incredibly rewarding, as I’m able to share the serenity I find with others. Whether teaching online or in person, I find immense fulfillment in getting to know fellow artists and creatives as they embark on a journey to improve their skills and contribute to their daily joy”.

 

” Inspired by Wells” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

 

Caryl explains, “Painting is a form of meditation for me. Like the water in a lake, when your mind is calm, you can see the depths below; however, when your mind is disturbed, it is easy to get caught up in the waves. Brushstroke by brushstroke, I calm the waters in the lake of my mind to find peace and serenity”.

 

 

 

“Anticipating November” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

 

We hope you’ll join Caryl on a journey of joy through painting, whether by subscribing to her “Artsy Tips & Insights,” brightening your home with her 2019 calendar (complete with vibrant paintings and inspirational quotes), signing up for a workshop, or by commissioning an expressively painted animal portrait of one of your favorite pets.  She says, “I hope my recent paintings inspired by Autumn provide you peace as well”!

New Images Of Caryl Pomales’ Artistry And Some Helpful Hints About Hanging Artwork In Your Home Or Office

You can feel Caryl Pomales’s passion for painting in her oil, watercolor and acrylic paintings! Her modern day impressionist work takes us from flowers, to sheep, to cats, and every-day sights, but brings them to our attention in a new, vibrant way.  Caryl takes the time to educate us so we may better appreciate that there is more to a painting than brush and pigment.  The Rickie Report shares some of Caryl’s helpful hints about how to hang your artwork in this article and some new images of her work.

 

 

 

Caryl   Pomales   Fine   Art

 

 

Fine artist, Caryl Pomales

 

Caryl’s creative journey began as a child with oil painting lessons, and continued through her college years with an emphasis on graphic design. She enjoyed a career in graphic design, marketing and printing sales as a young adult. Within the past few years, she had the opportunity to retire and without hesitation she reengaged her creative self by taking various painting classes and workshops to include Acrylic, Oil and Watercolor classes with many accomplished artists. She tells The Rickie Report, “I have rekindled my passion to paint”!

 

 

 

 

“Flower Garden Memories” by Caryl Pomales, Recently painted in honor of Mothers Day

 

 

Caryl shares some tips on hanging your artwork:

 

Whether you just started purchasing original art or you are adding more original paintings or art prints to your collection, there is one simple guideline to making hanging your art easy and captivating to you and others as the viewer.

 

 

 

“Picasso – Le Chat” by Caryl Pomales

 

Place the center of your artwork at eye level. It ensures the art can be admired by the viewer comfortably. Measure 57″ from the floor and mark a small pencil mark on the wall. Next find the center point of the artwork by measuring its height and dividing it by 2.

 

 

Measure the top of the painting to the tightened hanging wire it will hang from. Subtract this distance number from the center point number. Using this new number, measure the distance above the 57″ mark. This is where the hanger should be placed. Mark this spot accordingly. 

 

 

“Tete-Rouge” by Caryl Pomales

When hanging artwork above furniture or mantles this formula may not always apply, the bottom of the frame should be between 6 – 8″ above the top of the furniture or obstruction. The artwork should relate space-wise to the furniture, meaning a small work of art hanging 6″ above a long sofa will not look right, however a large piece of artwork or multiple small pieces ideally spaced 3″ to 6″ apart will look great. Happy decorating with your new artwork!


“Adventures in Paradise” by Caryl Pomales

Caryl has studied with many accomplished artists including, Alessandra Gieffers, Julia Kelly, Peggy Kirkwood, Nancy Medina, Dennis Perrin, Dreama Toll Perry, & Mary Bentz-Gilkerson.  Recent recognitions include an award for her impressionistic style, bold brush stroke and vivid color painting, “Picasso-Le Chat” from the 39th Annual Members’ Show at the Lighthouse ArtCenter/Gallery. Her paintings were exhibited at the Members 6th Art of Association collaborative-juried exhibit featuring artists from sixteen Art Associations located throughout Palm Beach and Martin Counties in Florida and one of 27 artists featured in “Size Matters”, at The Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL.  In addition, she was honored to be invited as a SOLO artist to exhibit at the Sewall’s Point Town Hall in Sewall’s Point/Stuart, FL.  Caryl is an active member of Artists of Florida-LLC, North County Art Association, Benefactor and Artists’ Guild Member of the Lighthouse Art Center, The Arts Council of Martin County FL, Elliott Museum/ Stuart, FL, The Lake Worth Art League, Wellington Art Society, Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park and The Audubon Society, Martin County FL Chapter.
