“Waiting For Mom” by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

 

 

Deborah grew up on a farm in Connecticut, surrounded by nature and began drawing as a child, copying her mother’s paintings of Bambi, Flower and Thumper on her bedroom wall. Since they were painted on the hall wall, her parents quickly provided her with coloring books, paints and crayons to encourage her creativity. She began drawing birds in grade school, winning awards at the school and painted and drew every summer and during the school year, often forgoing homework! She earned her college degree with a dual major in Illustration and Commercial Art. She graduated with honors and moved to South Florida where she has worked for many years as a graphic artist for The Sun Sentinel. She is currently a Special Sections Designer for the paper and in her “spare time” teaches at Old School Square in Delray Beach, does local workshops and demos.

Mediums used by Deborah include pastel, oils and acrylics and may involve an under painting for added luminosity and atmosphere. Each medium requires different procedures. With pastels it involves washes of color and turpentine. In oils she blocks out colors. With acrylics she builds on layers going from light to dark.

“Party Papers, Ribbons and Confetti IV” by Carol Z. Brody

CAROL Z. BRODY NWS

czbrody@carolzbrody.com

 

Carol tells The Rickie Report, “My paintings reflect my love of color and my fascination with texture, and are often tied to some aspect of the real world. They begin as a flow of feelings, intuition and spirit. Rather than carefully controlling my paintings, I allow them to grow and emerge, suggesting their forms, which I develop by means of many layers of glazes.  Through my work, I try to delight the viewers’ senses and bring them joy. Many remark about the beautiful colors, telling me they love the softness and emotional quality in my work. It pleases me to know I have reached them.”

Deb’s paintings come to life in pastels, acrylics and oils.
