Fran Mann Goodman’s New Exhibit, “Wander And Wonder” Opens February 6 At The Delray Beach Library, Sharing Eye-Catching Colored Paintings And A Lesson In Pivoting When Life Throws A Curve Ball

Award winning abstract expressionist artist Fran Mann Goodman reveals not only her eye-catching colorful artistry, but a life lesson as she prepares for her upcoming exhibit,“Wander and Wonder”. The Exhibit will be an eclectic assortment of landscapes, florals and free flowing lines and shapes at the Delray Beach Library from February 6th through mid-March.  The public is welcome to a free Meet The Artist Reception on Wednesday, March 8. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

“Fantasia” by Fran Mann Goodman









   6 – 8  PM



Library Hours:

Mon – Wed: 9AM – 8PM
Thu – Sat: 9AM – 5PM
Sun: 1PM – 5PM 



This exhibit runs February 6th through mid-March, 2023.





An award-winning abstract expressionist, Fran’s approach to the blank canvas is to fuse eye-catching color with pastes, gels, sands, paper towels, acrylic skins and other layering devices.  This adds dimension to the images, even the smallest ones. Giving little thought to their placement, she allows the application to evolve with each stroke. The effect creates a backdrop for stories and interpretations and a place for viewers to “wander and wonder”. 




Fran Mann Goodman



Although she was educated in fine art, Fran had never thought of herself as an abstract expressionist. She developed a successful career as an author, screenwriter and advocate for women’s beauty rights for which she drew the attention of the domestic and international media. She was featured in women’s magazines, on NPR and in The New York Times. 






“Beginning” by Fran Mann Goodman





In 2012, while working on a script for a second screenplay that had caught the attention of a Hollywood production company, she contracted Lyme disease. Severe pain in her fingers stopped her writing cold. She turned back to her art after realizing it was possible to hold a palette knife. That same year she studied under the legendary abstract expressionist Larry Poons at the Art Students League in New York while teaching abstract expressionism at the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey. When she moved to Boca Raton in 2016, she was warmly received by the Florida art community.  





“Pot of Gold” by Fran Mann Goodman


Fran tells The Rickie Report, “When I couldn’t write on the computer, not even manage the space bar, I became very frustrated and depressed. Then, when I reconnected with painting, lifting a palette knife for the first time since my days at art school, it was a godsend for me. I realized I was not going to let anything stop me. The most important thing to do was to do the things I wanted to do in my life. And I wanted to both paint and teach.”

“Stellar” by Fran Mann Goodman




Fran is the scholarship chair of the National Association of Women Artists, Florida branch and co-chair of the art program for the Boca Raton chapter of the National League of American Pen Women. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries in Manhattan, New Jersey, Toronto and Florida, and are in private collection in the US and Canada. Fran is a former instructor at Old School Square’a Creative Art School. She teaches an open level online class, blending art history with techniques in abstract expressionism. A keynote speaker and workshop leader, her collective projects have been featured in a variety of Florida media and on YouTube.  Fran is an alumnus of Chouinard Art Institute (Cal Arts).

“Waterways Blue and Orange” by Patricia Lappin



To Patricia Lappin, every painting is an adventure!  When you visit the Delray Beach Library to see her exhibit, you will understand what she means. I look at her paintings and wonder where that path in the painting may take me next! She says, ” Since moving to Florida my color palette has become brighter and more vibrant. My subject is still the natural world expressed in both abstracts and more recognizable images.  However, I am taking more license with the colors and simplifying the shapes to imply and intuit instead of record an actual scene as I have been doing for the last 20 years”.


Patricia goes on to explain, “Before Florida I lived in Arkansas for 20 years, exploring the hills and waterways with Plein Air and studio work in oil. That is the THEN.  NOW I am sketching and taking photos at Green Cay and the Loxahatchee Nature Preserve to inspire the new acrylic paintings.  The contrast is very interesting when placed side by side.  Our life circumstances and a new environment have great influence on how we see the world around us”.




“Winter Trail” by Patricia Lappin





Patricia tells The Rickie Report, ” Enjoy the beauty around you.  My desire to create was very strong and drawing was my refuge, my sanctuary.  It was an inner compulsion to be separate from the world sometimes.  I was content to spent hours drawing leaves, branches and bugs. A school field trip to the St. Louis Art Museum opened my eyes – adults took painting and drawing seriously, what a revelation”!



From age 10 to 14, she studied painting on Saturday mornings with a high school art teacher.  After high school, she attended SMS in Springfield, Mo. for 4 semesters, taking every available art course, intro to design, color, etc., but Patricia only wanted to learn to paint like the paintings she had seen at the St. Louis Art Museum and that was not happening.  She met her husband, married and became a mother. 



“Winter Trail” by Patricia Lappin



Patricia continues, “I was still painting, but unsure of the new “adult artist” me.  We moved to Fairfield, CT. near NYC.  Caesar Cirigliano became my teacher and mentor for 5 years.  Working with only black, white, yellow ocher and burnt sienna for the first 3 years, he taught me portrait, landscape and still life painting.  We spent many hours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC studying the masters. Working with Ceasar was the greatest education I could have.  From 1970 to 1975 he led me from an insecure young adult struggling to believe in my artist-future to a confident artist in multiple mediums.  As he was leaving for Florida to retire, I ask him “who would be my teacher now?”  His answer formed my future.  “Don’t you know?  You are the teacher now.  You have the foundation now.”  When I began teaching I used my notes from the 5 years of study with Caesar.  I still use them today”.








“Waterways in Yellow” by Patricia Lappin





Patricia opened her first studio in 1980 and began teaching and exhibiting in the tri-state area.  Her family moved to Ft. Smith AR in 1996.  “Since then I have been represented by galleries in Kansas City MO, Scottsdale AZ, and Van Buren AR.  I have shown my work at the Ft. Smith Art Center and the Center for Art and Education many times.  I teach private classes and workshops. My paintings are in many private and public collections”.



In 2016 the Lappins moved to Boca Raton FL, where Patricia joined the Plein Air Palm Beach group, exploring new scenes and making new friends, seeking out galleries and other venues for showing/selling her paintings and teaching.  She is on the faculty at The New Studio for the Visual Arts in Jupiter, FL. and a member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society. Patricia has won numerous awards for her artistry and her works can be found in private as well as public collections.

Don and Mary Anne Sarka’s joy of creativity exudes from their faces!  Their combined love of nature has taken them to places and environments where they are continually recharging their creative batteries. Don tells The Rickie Report, “My interest in art began many years ago, when I began sketching Disney characters as a boy and using watercolors to paint them.  Starting in 1988, I began getting Instruction in oil painting from a local artist and have studied and painted on and off to the present time.  I use oil paints because it allows me to mix and blend to produce strong colors with light and shadows”.



“Majestic Sky” by Don Sarka




He goes on to say, “My love of nature and its magnificent creations, causes a spiritual change in me.  The many photos taken give me inspiration to paint a particular picture. We have vacationed in many states and national parks and I have become a critical photographer, capturing the beauty and splendor of nature. I paint my version of what I see and interpret it on to canvas.  I use pictures as an idea of what I want to paint and then come up with my interpretation or theme.  I am a landscape architect and the principles of design have helped me in painting with form, texture and color”.






“Purple” by Don Sarka



Mary Anne tells The Rickie Report, ” My enthusiasm for painting started many years ago. Since then I have taken many classes with fantastic painting professionals and it has given me the opportunity to work on composition, perspective, colors, texture, lights and dark’s.  I paint in the traditional and representational format and my paintings can be hung practically anywhere.  I prefer acrylic. My paintings vary between landscapes, seascapes, animals, birds and flowers. I love it when I get lost in the painting process. When I stand back during this time to look at my painting, I am happily surprised and delighted”.





“Florida Wetlands” by Mary Anne Sarka



She continues, “I frequent art galleries and have a collection of wonderful painting books that give me fantastic information, guidance and inspiration. Painting opened up a whole new world for me, and has given me an awareness and ability to be creative and paint using my imagination and feelings. I have taken thousands of photographs that I use as a reference when painting”.



Award winning artists, Don and Mary Anne are members of the Delray Art League which is a juried league and exhibited in most of their events, including The Crest Theater, the Delray Affair, Delray Beach City Hall, Old School Square, Veterans Park, Coral Springs Museum of Art, Armory Art Center, Arts Garage. They have previously exhibited at the Lake Worth Art League Gallery and Arts Arena Garage (Delray Beach).









“Waves and Palm Trees” by Mary Anne Sarka



Generous with their time and artworks, they have donated to the local community through fundraisers, art auctions, and painted a 6’ x 20’ mural by their clubhouse pool.  They have four married children and nine grandchildren and one great child on the way. They both tell The Rickie Report, “During our family times, we are seldom without our cameras to capture family photos, scenery and nature that’s around us. Painting is one of our favorite things that we do together”.

Elfrida Schragen Shares “Potpourri” of Paintings At Delray Beach Public Library

Elfrida Schragen‘s original oil paintings are vibrant!  Her “en plein air” style shows us a glimpse of the actual moments, as she captures the atmosphere as well as the subject matter, in time. For inspiration for these particular landscapes, Elfrida draws from her two homes, one in Delray Beach in the USA, and the other in Victoria, BC in Canada – two oceans, different flora and fauna, and flat land verses mountainous terrain. Her portraits are inspired by models and friends and they catch an obvious likeness to her subjects.  You can see her artwork at the Delray Beach Public Library through January 22nd.  The Rickie Report shares the details about this Free Exhibit and some sneak peeks.

Bridge At Mounts Botanical Gardens” by Elfrida Schragen




These original oils painted by “Elfrida” are comprised of vibrant portraits, still life, and works created en ”Plein Air” (a style of painting in the outdoors that aims to catch the atmosphere and general tone of a location in a short work time over one or two sessions). For inspiration for these particular landscapes, Elfrida draws from her two homes, one in Delray Beach in the USA, and the other in Victoria, BC in Canada – two oceans, different flora and fauna, and flat land verses mountainous terrain. Her portraits are inspired by models and friends and they catch an obvious likeness to her subjects.

“Come Walk With Me” nay Elfrida Schragen




Elfrida was born in Canada into a family of artists where colour, and design were a constant dinner table subject of conversation. However she trained as a teacher and spent her professional life working with autistic, emotionally disturbed and handicapped children. Although she dabbled in art throughout her teaching career, taking the occasional course and participating in solo and group shows, it has been since her retirement that her art has really become defined. Her explorations include eight years of sculpture, five years working with pastels and finally settling into oil painting as her medium of choice.

“Marina On Salt Spring Island, BC” by Elfrida Schragen





Elfrida Schragen has presented many SOLO shows and participated in group shows in Canada and the USA. Her paintings hang in the Americas and Europe. She enjoys painting portraits from life and photographs and is available for commissioned work. She tells The Rickie Report,” When there is that spark of life in a face, an original peaceful or intriguing design, or a certain play of color or shadow, I feel very excited about the challenge of capturing it on the canvas.”
