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!

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”!

Before Caryl Pomales Offers 3 Day Workshop At New Studio For Visual Arts, She Reminds Us Why Artists Should Never Stop Taking Classes!

Caryl Pomales understands that creativity is not a quantifiable skill that can ever be officially mastered. It is a skill and a muscle that you must exercise to maintain, sharpen, and keep limber. Living a creative life is a marathon of continually cultivating curiosity and artistry. A runner does not quit stretching and training after completing a marathon; nor should the painter ever quit expanding his or her skill set. The Rickie Report shares her exciting announcement: Caryl will host a 3 Day workshop in October, PAWS- “Painting Animals with Spirit” at the New Studio For Visual Arts in Tequesta!  We give you all of the details, including a discount, how to receive her blog, and some sneak peeks!

“Lilac Breasted Roller” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

Caryl tells The Rickie Report,  “There is much to gain from being a perpetual student of the arts, continually participating in studies, reading, practicing, and taking classes. Amateurs and professional artists alike should continue their painting pursuits in a classroom, and here are just a few reasons why”.

 

  • Working on your craft. While you may have works displayed in galleries, sold dozens of paintings, or taught your own course, artistry is your athletic pursuit. You’ve completed your “marathon,” and it’s time to stretch and train for your next race!

 

  • Opening your mind to a different perspective and technique you may not have experienced, thought about, or mastered. There is always room to learn and adopt new styles, adding to your artistic toolbox. This will, without a doubt, help you create adventurous and dynamic work.

 

 

  • Renewed attentiveness. Sometimes, after being away from a class for a while, the artist can start to lose some of their creative curiosity. A learning environment constantly pushes the artist to grow, experiment, try new things, and look at the world a new way. Returning to a course is a great way to revive that crucial skill, reopening the eyes, heart, and mind.

 

 

  • Kindness among fellow artists. A workshop or class is an incredible opportunity to meet other painters at all stages in their lives and careers. Having a solid network of fellow artists is incredibly fulfilling, and one of the best places to meet this community is at a workshop!

 

 

  • Striving to further cultivate your artistry by never settling into complacency. Those who pursue the constant betterment of their craft have the most satisfying and inspiring careers.

 

 

  • Heal, relax, sooth, and relieve stress. Classes are, in addition to being productive, wonderfully enjoyable! They are a great place to set an artistic “reset” button and enjoy a creative and supportive learning environment.

 

 

  • Ownership of your talent and skill. Classes remind you both what you know and are remarkably skilled at as well as you can improve upon, and give you the opportunity to work on the latter.

 

 

  • Painting, and doing what you ultimately love, amongst others who feel the same way!

 

 

“Juicey Fruit” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

What does this spell?   W-O-R-K-S-H-O-P!  

Caryl says, “Let’s continue our pursuit of creative curiosity and commit to being perpetual students together”.

 

Just one example of perpetually studying Caryl’s art- One of her paintings-in-progress!

 

 

 

Caryl Pomales 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.

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.

The Behind-The-Scenes Story of “The Midwives” Painting By Carla Golembe

Imagine our delight and surprise when reading Hadassah Magazine and seeing a painting that looked familiar!  Rickie Leiter, publisher of The Rickie Report interviews Carla Golembe, to share the behind-the-scenes story of how her painting, “The Midwives” was published.  Carla teaches at Old School Square in Delray Beach and at the Boca Museum School of Art, focusing on nurturing her students to express what they feel.  Her acrylic paintings and limited editions are sold internationally. The Rickie Report shares the story and some sneak peeks of her other works of art here.

“The Midwives” by Carla Golembe

 

Carla Golembe tells The Rickie Report, “We live on an increasingly small planet in dangerous times. The state of our world is impossible to ignore. As humans we straddle the river of our potential with one foot on each bank. Our capacity for love and compassion is equaled by our ability to turn our backs on one another and by the biases and hatreds that people have harbored since the beginning of time”.  

 

She says, “And yet I continue to paint beauty, joy, connection and harmony. My paintings are human and universal, multicultural and cross cultural. My intention is to create a visual haven that encourages viewers to enter my domain, dwell in beauty, rejoice in color and breathe. The figures emanate wonder and mystery. The work is evocative rather than descriptive. My interest as an artist lies in expressing how something feels rather than what it looks like. As my subject matter expands to include both my inner vision and the outer world, I find myself painting about inclusiveness and caring for the earth. I am painting hope. This is my authentic personal expression and my purpose as a painter. The world of my paintings is not “realism” but perhaps it’s “magic realism”. It’s the reality of what makes my life worth living, what makes us human and what I want to bring into the world”.

 

 

“Mantras II” by Carla Golembe

 

 

Carla’s paintings are the product of her dreams and experiences. They speak of hope and love, of mystery and delight. Her work expresses the harmony between individuals, between people and animals, people and nature, within a person’s soul. They are colorful and sensual, reflecting the tropical beauty of her home and travels. “The full spectrum of positive emotion echoes through my work. Although the pieces express an optimistic attitude they are not naïve, rather they come from an understanding that pain and anxiety are part of life but joy is a more desirable place to dwell. Although my compositions are designed and defined sometimes there is no gravity in my visual world. The figures often inhabit ambiguous spaces, places where earth, sky and water flow into one another and where light and darkness merge. They are frequently caught in a moment of being or becoming, for it is in that moment that all dreams are possible”.

 

 

“For All ll” by Carla Golembe

 

 

Color brings life to Carla’s imagery, as she works in acrylic, building layer upon layer of color. With this layering technique she is able to achieve a simple but complex depth. The process is always unfolding, always revealing more. Strong color, shape and composition give impact to the imagery. Her influences come from both traditional Western art and folk art. The result is a blend and balance that is her own unique style.

 

TRR:  Tell us how “The midwives” painting came to be published in Hadassah Magazine

CG:

Back in the early 80’s I was showing my work at Kolbo Fine Judaica in Brookline, MA. I’d been showing there since 1979 and still exhibit paintings there now. In the 80’s I was primarily working in monotype. I had created a piece with a calligraphic border depicting Shifra and Puah, the midwives who saved the male Jewish babies who Pharoah had decreed must be put to death. It was hanging in Kolbo’s window.

 

 

 

 

MANA (Midwives Alliance of North America) was having a national conference in Brookline and one of the attendees saw the Midwives piece when she was walking by Kolbo. She contacted me about it, to ask if MANA could make a poster from it, but it had already sold. We came to an agreement; I would create a new piece that MANA could use for the poster, charge them a low fee for usage rights and, in return, once poster sales profit exceeded my fee they’d pay me a small percentage of the sales. I would keep the piece. The arrangement worked well.

 

A number of months later MANA asked me about the original that I’d created for the poster. They wanted to honor a midwife who was 85 or 90 years old and had delivered hundreds of babies in the Arizona Territory before Arizona was a state. They wanted to give her the piece but they didn’t have much money to spend. I felt privileged that they would want to honor her with my artwork and clearly, right thing to do was to donate the piece to give to this woman and that’s what I did. I think that was a good karmic moment. You give and you receive. Sales of the poster (and later the T- shirt) were strong for almost 30 years and every 6 months or a year I’d get a little royalty check as well as notes and emails about how much the poster meant to midwives all over the country.

 

The image had been taken from a slide and eventually the slide was lost and no one could find the image which had deteriorated over time anyway and so, as of a few years ago, there were no more posters or shirts available. But I’d still occasionally get inquiries about it because someone had seen a poster or a t shirt. My response was always to explain that as far as I knew they were not in circulation but that I would be happy to create an original based on that piece although, of course, it would be different. Every piece is an original and I was now working in acrylic rather than monotype.

 

Last summer I was contacted by Steve Calvin of the Minnesota Birth Center about the poster which he had seen while visiting the Breath of Life Birthing Center in Largo, FL. He commissioned a painting based on the poster. It was really enjoyable revisiting the theme over 30 years later in a different medium and a pleasure working with Steve. He was very happy with the painting which graces the walls of the Birth Center. Then, last winter, I was contacted by Hadassah Magazine about the old poster. They were planning to publish an article on midwives in their March issue and had seen the original poster image. Could they have permission to use it to illustrate the article? I explained that there were no images of the original poster (I had no files and the slide was gone) but that I’d created a new piece for the Minnesota Birth Center and I would contact them to see if it was ok for the magazine to use it.

 

The Birth Center was very gracious and said it was fine with them and that’s how the image came to be used in the magazine, though Hadassah chose not to include the border with the calligraphy.  I am selling prints, t shirts, coffee mugs etc with the image of the new painting through Fine Art America. The request made by the Minnesota Birth Center was that I donate a percentage of my profits from sales of the image to the Breath of Life Birthing Center in Largo, FL. I am happy to do so. So the good karma and love from this piece continues.

The beauty of her natural surroundings, fauna and flora inspire Caryl. “The vivid color and pronounced texture I see are key elements that are demonstrated within my paintings.  Travel and photography as my second passion has afforded me the opportunity to capture many exhilarating scenes throughout the United States, Europe and southern Africa. I often refer to my travel photographs as my inspiration”.

 

Cary Pomales “Bandoola of Botswana”

 

 

 

 

Excitedly, Caryl shares, “I am currently painting a series of small paintings in oils, which reflect my recent visit to the Tuscany and Umbria regions of Italy. My viewers recognize my paintings by my utilization of vibrant color choices and pronounced impasto texture or prominent brush stroke. A sense of joy and passion is implemented and identified within my body of work”.

 

 

Caryl Pomales “Cinque Picora”

 

 

Caryl resides in Stuart Florida with her husband and family of pets.  She says, “I am grateful as well as influenced by the remarkable aqua blue ocean, spectacular cloud formations, striking sunrise and sunsets as well as the unique fauna and flora of the Indian River Lagoon”.

 

Caryl Pomales  “Champ de coquelicots”

 

 

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.

Amy Reshefsky Gallery:

Reflects Artist’s Eclectic Styles and Techniques

 

 

Amy Reshefsky Gallery reflects eclectic styles and techniques.  Her career as a skilled and sought-after artist began on a whim.  After Amy moved to a town outside of Montreal with her husband, who was frequently away on business, she often found herself alone in a new country where she didn’t know many people but had an abundance of free time.  For reasons she can’t explain, Amy went out, bought a canvas, some acrylic paints and brushes, and brought them back to a room that was empty except for a few unpacked boxes.

Amy tells The Rickie Report, “I just started painting and I haven’t stopped,” she said.  Trying to define Amy as one kind of an artist or another is as challenging as trying to define her style of artwork.  Her work is diverse – to say the least – and about as eclectic as you’ll find anywhere.  “Some artists stick to a certain style because that’s what they’re comfortable with but I’m more comfortable being creative in all directions,” she says. “I love to try different things and different techniques. I can attack anything and enjoy the challenge.”

 

One of her pieces, commissioned for a local synagogue, tells the story of Passover on a large piece of glass in a whimsical and almost playful manner.  At the same time, most of the abstract paintings on her gallery’s walls are reflective of Amy’s mood in when she sits down to paint.  “If I’m in a good mood, the painting will be bright and cheery,” she says. “Whatever mood I’m in, I just go for it.”

 

 

“The Orange” by Amy Reshefsky

 

 

While what she’s feeling at the time drives the tone of her paintings, Amy says what the final piece of art will look like.  Always creative, Amy has never taken an art class or studied art formally. She has a fine arts degree, with her training in fashion design.

 

Her passion now is fully focused on her artwork – and on her gallery/studio , located in The Heart of Delray Gallery in Delray Beach,Florida.  “I wake up every morning wondering why I’m doing what I do,” she says. “But I have to do it. I’m driven.” Amy’s mission is to ” continually create and produce art in many mediums that reflects my inner self.  My art has a deep significance to channeling my emotions”.

"La Bel Canto" by Carla Golembe

“La Bel Canto” by Carla Golembe

 

 

Carla tells The Rickie Report, “Several months ago I began experimenting with Intuitive Painting, a process that involves putting down a lot of layers of color and mark making without planning or intention.  With the intuitive approach the artist basically goes on gut instinct, allowing colors, marks and, eventually, images to emerge.  Up until then my approach had been very planned out, creating several sketches until I got my composition exactly as I wanted it, planning the palette of each painting, though allowing the painting to change as it progressed.  I was beginning to feel stuck with my process and feeling low on ideas and intuitive painting seemed like a good way to move forward”.

 

"Celestial Bodies" by Carla Golembe

“At first I was disoriented and kind of shocked by the approach and what was emerging on my canvas.  To be sure, this kind of play with paint was a lot of fun, but was this ME?  How was I going to reconcile these random marks with my carefully constructed, though whimsical and stylized, paintings”?

 

 

" Devi" by Carla Golembe

“Then my inner muse took over.  By that I mean, the core of who I am as an artist.  The mark making became multilayered underpainting, a freer and more complex type of underpainting than what I had worked with before. Once I built up very rich complex layers of colors I sketched my figures on top of these backgrounds with chalk.  Some canvases suggested their ideas to me while other pieces came from images I wanted to explore”.

 

"Mari" by Carla Golembe

“Mari di Sogni” by Carla Golembe

 

 

“Once my figures were in place I began to work with the interplay of image and background, under layers and over layers, taking away and adding in.  In the paintings I’ve balanced the structure and figures that I love with the spontaneity of creating marks with tools other than brushes and allowing the backgrounds to evolve around the figures. Birds, plants and other forms from nature continue to play a large part in the imagery. I’ve started using more glazing technique to create depth and richness”.

 

 

"Skyward" by Carla Golembe

“Skyward” by Carla Golembe

She explains, “My new process is a blend of intention and intuition.  It’s not a radical change, just a way to move forward and have more fun.  I’ve fallen in love with painting all over again.  I continue to paint beauty, joy and harmony because that is what I want to put out to the world”.
