Dawn Evans’ Art Literally Can Fill A Room! You’re invited To A Special Reception At Cafe Toscano

Dawn Evans has transformed Cafe Toscano with five murals to make you feel like you are dining in Tuscany while enjoying a glass of wine and dinner!  As you enter, the “Wine Cellar” beckons you to sit and relax. The middle dining room is given special attention by a large golden mirror accented by two floral and vase murals. “The Vineyard” creates an ambiance, as you look out from a balcony onto an expansive vineyard, villa, then to the distant mountains and sky. These Impressionistic landscapes bring Italy to Cafe Toscano – and to you!  Cafe Toscano invites you to a Free Opening Reception to celebrate Dawn’s achievements.  The Rickie Report shares the details and urges you to RSVP.

Wine Cellar” 23′ x10′, mural

In this wine, dessert and coffee cafe area it feels as if you are looking into a wine cellar in the next room. From viewing the wall straight on, in the center you will see the exact location of the wine barrels. The illusion created is that from entering from either side, the angle turns towards you …and you can walk right in!






An Impressionistic landscape artist, Dawn Evans has painted exteriors of buildings, interior walls, niches, ceilings and entire rooms for businesses and residences. Her passion to paint is to capture the crisp, bright colors and light of nature: from tropical beaches and oceans, to vineyards in Tuscany, to a field of flowers or to a mountain peak.

“Toscano Vineyard”, 28′ x 10′ mural


The concept is to create an atmosphere that you are on a balcony overlooking a villa and vineyard. The distant mountains, the rolling hills, a villa, the contrast of the white balusters and red poppy fields are typical of Tuscany.



Dawn has brought everything from convincing faux finishing to whimsical murals for children’s rooms to trompe l’oeil murals nation-wide. Travel for on-site work or shipping art is always available . Many clients along the way have become great friends and the artist feels it is truly a blessing to share her gift.

"All Together" by Patricia Maguire

“All Together” by Patricia Maguire




Patricia Maguire’s view is that,” Art is nature as seen through the filter of emotions.”  She explains to The Rickie Report, ” I have been drawing and painting all my life. Sometimes, even when my hands are still, I am painting in my mind. I see the world through the prism of light and shapes.  I have not chosen to paint, rather it has chosen me, and I feel it is something I must do.”


"View from Ponte Vecchio Three" by Patricia Maguire

“View from Ponte Vecchio”  by Patricia Maguire



“My formative years were spent in big cities, with lots of access to museums, galleries and schools, but I have chosen to be closer to nature in the last decades. I live on the water, and escape to the mountains. I hope this love of our natural world communicates itself to you in my work. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and spent years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Caracas, Venezuela. I have now lived in Florida, USA, for the past decades. Each country has left footprints,” she shares.

"Maui Waves"

“Maui Waves”


Much of Heydlauff’s art is either spiritual or impressionistic.  It is art with a message. Her spiritual works are thought-provoking, evocative and inspiring. She uses these elements to incorporate inspirations, balance and harmony into everyday lives. Most viewers see something new each time they view her work. And many people have purchased her art for the express purpose of bringing balance and harmony to their homes.



Pat Heydlauff’s spiritual art is meant to take the viewer on a visual journey that ends up as a personal journey, as well, holding up a world of possibilities that the viewer may have never considered before. With lush color and tranquil movement, it’s designed to evoke a sense of peace and joy in the viewer. Her spiritual artwork and verse are featured in her new book, The Way We Go, Your Roadmap to a Better Future





Pat Heydlauff was asked by the prestigious Saatchi Gallery of London to exhibit her artwork in their online gallery. And her spiritual piece called “Ascension” was chosen for publication in the “Best of Florida Artists and Artisans”, 2006.



Heydlauff has exhibited at a variety of galleries and shows, among them the Juanita K. Hammons Performing Arts Center, (Juried Show), Springfield, MO; the Jupiter Town Hall Gallery of Art, the Friends of the Arts, Juno Beach, FL and the Eissey Theater Gallery at PBCC, Palm Beach Gardens. Her paintings are also displayed in such diverse places as the City Hall of Branson, MO, and the home of actress Barbara Billingsley.


"Purple Velvet Iris"

“Purple Velvet Iris”

Pat Heydlauff, a Florida resident, is much more than just an artist. She’s a widely-published writer, author of two books, Feng Shui So Easy a Child Can Do It and Selling Your Home with a Competitive Edge. She’s a noted leadership and productivity speaker and consults with businesses, organizations and individuals on how to create engaging workplace environments to unleash the flow of focus and personal environments to increase prosperity.



Pat tells The Rickie Report, “Painting is the physical expression of my spiritual being. It is the positive “flow” that starts in my heart and travels to my hands…and continues onto a two-dimensional canvas projecting three-dimensional energy… Painting is the physical manifestation of my spiritual being. It is the flow of energy through paint onto a two dimensional canvas projecting three dimensional energy. I endeavor to convey a vital energy through sight with color and design. My inspirational and mainstream artwork can be placed in areas of the home and office to create an environment with balance, harmony and a flow of energy which enriches the viewer. “


"Balanced Love"

“Balanced Love”


Pat discovered her love for painting in 1993 as she was transitioning out of a stress filled career and exploring her creative side. As a colorist, she painted lively, vibrant mainstream artwork consisting of landscapes, florals and still-lifes.  Through painting she noticed that her life was becoming balanced, and filled with harmony instead of stress.   She  shares, “Painting allowed me to discover my spiritual nature and peace within and lead me to paint in a stream of consciousness flowing with energy. This flow of consciousness energy is visible in my recent “art with a message” canvas work where you can always find hope, peace and joy in the subject matter and every brush stroke.”


"Sunset's Afterglow"

“Sunset’s Afterglow”



Pat believes that in our world today with cement cities, sound pollution and isolated environments, it is difficult to find a place of peace and harmony.  She says, “The colors and design of my art allow the viewer to escape into a peaceful place and find a glimpse of harmony within or inspiration leading to a better tomorrow.”

Manon Sander Shares Inspired Impressions of Florida With Passion

Manon Sander paints everyday scenes with brush strokes that impress the viewer. Her wonder of nature has inspired her work since her childhood.  The Rickie Report hopes you will see Manon’s work and meet her on December 14th at the Juno Beach Town Center sponsored by the Friends of the Arts of Juno Beach.  You will have another opportunity to see her work and meet her when she does a two-woman show at the Palm Beach Cultural Council in the Spring, 2013.

 Show runs from December 12, 2012 – February 5, 2012

Artist reception – December 14th


   light refreshments


The Circle of Life

Born in West Berlin, Germany, Manon grew up in Berlin and Bavaria. Being exposed to the best of both worlds led to Manon’s appreciation for a metropolitan city’s cultural riches but also to her intimate connection with the outdoors of  Bavaria’s beautiful lakes, mountains and quaint little villages. Her childhood days were mostly spent either drawing and painting or roaming around outside. Manon’s parents instilled the importance of never losing one’s sense of wonder to nature’s beauty.  It is easy for us to see how this translates into Manon’s attention to details.  She truly finds inspiration where ever she goes!



She tells The Rickie Report, “Creating art to this day never feels like a pastime but like a necessity”.  After moving to Chicago in her late twenties as a newly wed, Manon pursued her love of painting with a successful business painting murals which are represented in numerous private homes and stores in Illinois, Michigan, Florida and California.


In 2006, being introduced to the work of well known California impressionist painters while living near San Francisco, Manon plunged herself into plein air oil painting, supplemented by studio work.   She says, “Living in Marin County provided a unique opportunity to study with the best and to finally combine my love of the outdoors with the portability of oil paints to create on the spot. Oils quickly became my favorite medium, allowing me to have an ongoing communication with my subject”.

“Catching Up”


Manon studied how to make a painting that combines rich texture and vivid color while capturing the expression of her subject and the impression it left on her. Over the course of several years she learned to simplify and to paint the big shapes before going into detail. Manon learned about her new medium and the importance of value, temperature, and design. She learned how to use technique while conveying what drew her to her subject in the first place.

In 2010  Manon and her family moved to North Palm Beach where she dipped right into painting the trademarks of a tropical setting which proves to provide her with a never-ending stream of inspiration and “an almost magnetic attraction to the ocean and its surroundings”, she says.

“Surf Camp”

Manon puts down her impressions in thick succulent oil paint,  applied with verve and a palette knife.  She describes her paintings as if we are reading a colorful novel,”…the sunlight that creates lavender shadows on the white clothing of people walking by the water’s edge deep in conversation; surfers and paddle boarders catching an aquamarine wave; boats at rest and on a journey; sea creatures and birds that call Florida their home, are among the countless things that get me so excited  that I can’t wait to get out my paints, easel, and big umbrella to capture them on canvas”!


“Morning After at the Square Grouper”

It is that happiness and love of life  Manon hopes to share with the viewer in paintings that reflect the color, light and joy that she is surrounded by and is always grateful for.  Manon’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous exhibitions in California and Florida, have won awards and are in private collections in the US and abroad.  


Locally she has exhibited at the Lighthouse ArtCenter.  We look forward to seeing Manon Sander’s work and our spirits are buoyed by her enthusiasm!  To reach Manon call: 415-606-7685, visit www.ManonDesigns.com or go to: www.facebook.com/ManonSanderArt
