Nancy Tilles

 

 

Local artist Nancy Tilles is known for her oils and portraits, which hang in public and private collections throughout the country. She exhibits her work in nationally recognized art shows across Florida. Nancy recently completed a commissioned portrait of beloved cardiac surgeon, Dr. Malcolm Dorman, which is installed at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, FL. 

 

 

“Adam and Eve” by Nancy Tilles

 

Along with her portrait work, Nancy has created bodies of work representing flowers, underwater scenes, and tropical art in mural-sized triptychs. Nancy’s newest series is called “Figures in the Ficus”. She says, “I am fascinated with Banyan and Ficus trees…. I usually begin these paintings with a unique tree and weave the figures into its structure.” At first glance, the viewer sees a lovely tree, but after a while, the whimsical human figures within the tree are realized, giving these paintings a truly magical quality.

 

 

 

“Sea Folk” by Nancy Tilles

 

 

 

Nancy is presently teaching painting to adults at Easel Art Supply and at the City of Palm Beach Gardens. She is passionate about sharing her love of painting with her students. Nancy is also an active member of the Wellington Art Society, whose members consist of dedicated professional artists, up and coming artists, art lovers and supporters. Learn more about her work at her website: https://www.nancytilles.com/.

Alan Halpern Brings His Iconic Art To Fashion As He Unveils New Wearable Art Line! What’s Next? Stay Tuned!

Alan Halpern has taken his iconic artworks to a new level!  In addition to having his artwork on your walls, you can WEAR IT!  Teaming up with an exclusive apparel manufacturer in Canada, Alan is now making his images as wearable art pieces at reasonable prices.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks. Now, YOU can be the canvas of an art icon! What’s next?  Stay tuned!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alan Halpern tells The Rickie Report,” I have taken my paintings to another dimension! I have partnered with an exclusive fashion company in Canada to manufacture and distribute a clothing line from three of my original paintings. To see the current collection ( there is more to come!)

 

When The Rickie Report last spoke with Alan, he had made T-Shirts for himself with a selection of his paintings imprinted on it.  He explains, “People asked me where can they get one! This led me to research other possibilities of wearable art.  I wanted to work with a quality company that offers online presence, a selection of clothing styles, ease of ordering, money collection, inventory control, S&H”.  At this point, Alan hints at future possibilities of handbags, pillow, and other decorative options.

Miles Laventhall, renown artist and teacher says,” The subjects Alan chooses and personal aesthetic are as colorful as he is.  The paintings he creates are visual reminders of life, full of potential and goodwill.  Al, we are blessed and inspired by you, and look forward to many more years of creativity together”.

 

 

 

From Betsy Ross to Blondie or Bruno Mars, Alan digs into the personality and reveals the inner essence of people.  Visual Artist, Ana Tamayo tells us, “Alan Halpern is a painter with a very positive view of life and a caring personality. Alan’s connection with people is reflected in his expressive portraits of celebrities where the composition and use of color flow naturally and seemingly, without any effort on the canvas. His sense of design and his experience as a graphic designer are unquestionable.  His works of art are a cheerful reminder to smile!”

Alan Halpern was born in the Bronx, NY and grew up in LIC. He tells The Rickie Report, “My interest in art germinated when I landed a job at Columbia Motion Pictures working in the print/mailroom. There I spent hours visiting the art department making friends and watching the artists create movie posters and 3D displays. I was then accepted by Pratt Institute, a prestigious Art School. Four years later, I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. Upon graduation, my first professional  job was a graphic designer at Dell Publishing designing sales and promotional materials for future books to be published. I went on to establish my own marketing/sales promotional design firm in Manhattan until retiring to Southern Florida”.

Alan’s artworks have been exhibited in a number of juried art shows, including: Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Artists Guild Gallery, Living Room Gallery at FAU University, ArtServe Gallery, Fort Lauderdale, FL., Sugar Sands Park & Community Center, Boca Raton Museum Art School, and Polo Club Boca Raton Arts & Craft Show.

Kathleen Denis at her easel

 

 

 

Kathleen Denis’ contemporary impressionistic style begins with a process in either plein air (outside) or in her studio, using mostly oils, reviewing and creating sketches and studies with many layers of paint.  She starts with realism and ends in creativity, with colorful brushstrokes and energetic movement, inviting the viewer to imagine being there.  

 

 

 

“Holding Onto Hope” by Kathleen Denis

 

 

She tells The Rickie Report, “My favorite piece in this Exhibit is  “Holding On To Hope”. It represents the isolation caused by society and our current pandemic during these times of unrest, yet the young lady is holding on to hope, depicted by a bright red flower.  Her face is unknown and hidden in darkness so that anyone can put themselves in her shoes.  

 

 

 

 

“Resting Place” by Kathleen Denis

 

 

 

Kathleen was born in Miami, grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, and spent much time in the Florida Keys and Bahamas, which greatly influenced her use of subject matter and colorful style.  Her love of art began at the age of four when taking art lessons from a fashion illustrator.  After graduating from University of Miami, with a BFA degree in Graphic Design, she continued her painting skills by studying from noted master artists.

 

 

 

“On The Bright Side” by Kathleen Denis

 

 

She began a lucrative career and has become one of the country’s top licensed artists!  Kathleen’s art appears on hundreds of home décor and gift products including wallpaper, kitchenware, bathroom collections and much more, sold through stores such as Bed, Bath and Beyond, HomeGoods, and Marshals.  Her art has been featured in articles in professional artist magazines and has a number of artworks have appeared in movies and tv series like Hawaii 5-O and Bloodline.  Her collectors include the producers of Titanic and Avatar, as well as known political figures.  Her original paintings can be found in Galleries, Exhibits, Plein Air Events and her website at www.kathleendenis.com.

 

 

 

 

 

“Three Dinghies” by Kathleen Denis

 

 

“Depicting sentiment through my paintings is of great importance”, Kathleen shares.  “Whether the subject matter is a timeworn cottage, a day at the beach or a sun-drenched garden, capturing the effect of light attracts me to every scene I paint. My current series of island life has been greatly influenced by growing up in South Florida, with visits to the Bahamas and Caribbean islands. with brightly painted buildings, colorful landscapes and turquoise waters. Painting chairs in many of my scenes suggests the need to take time out to rest, as I often hear, “I want to be there”.  

 

 

 

“Above and Beyond” by Kathleen Denis

 

 

 

As a faculty member at Lighthouse ArtCenter, Kathleen teaches classes and workshops there and at other art centers, in person and online.  She is a member of American Impressionist Society, National Oil and Acrylic Society, Oil Painters of America and an Official United States Coast Guard Artist.  In addition, Kathleen created a series called “A Scream For Silence” which uses elements in her paintings to reflect God’s Word bringing hope, restoration, and instruction to those in need.

Focus on Hands and Feet!

Anita Lovitt

Saturday, October 16,   10:00 AM—3:30 PM

 

 

This is a Virtual Workshop A Zoom link will be sent to you the day before

 

Hands and feet are some of the most expressive parts of the human body, yet many life drawing attendees are stumped by them. Spend a few hours looking closely at these parts and learn strategies to indicate and to draw them with confidence. In the morning session, we’ll study examples from master artists and then look at ways to simplify the forms and gestures of hands. We’ll do the same for feet in the afternoon. My teaching segments will alternate with students’ time drawing from photographs in 2, 5, and 20 minute sessions, much as in a life drawing class. After focusing on hands and feet for an afternoon, you will approach drawing them with more curiosity and enjoyment.

10:00 AM—1:00 PM Hands     1:00 PM— 1:30 PM {break)    1:30 PM— 3:30 PM Feet

Cost: $110 member, $125 non-member

Materials list will be sent out to students upon registration. Basically, it is whatever materials you prefer for figure drawing. You will be drawing some figures, not just hands. I like to use the following: 2 or 3 soft pencils (3B—6B ) pencils or line and wash pencils White or kneaded eraser Smooth white drawing paper in a pad or sketchbook, whatever size you feel you would use for figure drawing. If a sketch book, at least 9” x 12″. You may use newsprint if you prefer

What Ted’s students have told The Rickie Report:

“I just wanted to let you know that you are one of the people I am thankful for. You are a very patient, perspicacious and encouraging teacher and a critic and you have really changed painting for me in the last few months.  Not only have I reached the point where I can be more satisfied with my results, but the whole process has become more enjoyable for me.  Thank you for being such a generous teacher!”   JB

“Ted has taught me invaluable life lessons painting together. His supportive approach and teaching style allows me to learn completely as my authentic self. He provides safety in vulnerability and constructive feedback to hone my skills. Ted has supported me to live and flourish in my art, leading to my acceptance into the art program of my choice.  Learning with Ted has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and our time together goes well beyond our lessons. He’s taught me to believe in myself and to never give up – to love how I feel when I create art and to live up to what make me, me.”  BB

 

 

I have studied Watercolor Painting with Ted several ways –  in a plein air class in Maine , and both online and in person elsewhere. He is a wonderful, thorough, comprehensive teacher, who has taken me to new levels of understanding in color theory, reflection, depth and shadows, paint handling/technique. In addition, he is generous with his vast knowledge, extremely patient and supportive of his student, and has an awesome sense of humor that puts one at ease”. BMO

Introduction to Drawing and Art History

Introduction to Drawing and Art History is a monthly 3-hour workshop, where students learn how to create compelling still-life images with charcoal or graphite inspired by the composition, technique and observation of specific periods in Art History. Each session focuses on short fragments of the history of art, creating a quick and dynamic timeline that reviews the most relevant elements and influences in art, while enriching the mind and providing inspiration for still-life compositions. While it is recommended to take various workshops to enhance the art history and technique aspects of each lesson, students have the option to take workshops independently, for each session is designed to work autonomously reviewing basic elements of drawing, perspective and composition.
