“Horse of a Different Color” by Judith Harris

 

Judith Harris began her passion for painting approximately ten years ago when she studied oil painting with South Florida artist and instructor, John D’Auria, who recognized and encouraged her creative talents. Since then, Judith has become a full-time artist and has created fine art pieces in an array genres and subjects from Florida landscapes to playful ponies and pups and bold beach babes.

 

“Puppy Love” by Judith Harris

 

 

A dedicated artist, she paints most days, enjoys the interaction of studio time with fellow artists, and is active in both the Lake Worth and Delray Art Leagues. Artistic talent is a family-thing as her son, Yale Gurney, is a successful South Florida commercial photographer and her two grandchildren will no doubt be soon playing in the paint. Judith and her husband, Bill, live Lake Worth.

“Electric Bamboo” by Michael Raiman

 

 

Michael Raiman has lived in Palm Beach County for 62 years inspiring him to capture the beauty of South Florida’s natural landscapes. Starting with a 35mm camera loaned to him by his father, Michael learned the art of photography and composition through workshops, seminars, and from other photographers. It was studying under Jack Wild of the Delray Beach Center for the Arts that pulled him out of his comfort zone and into new environments. Michael entered his first photography competition at Arthur R Marshall Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge taking home the blue ribbon in one category and the Honorable Mention in another.

 

“Delicate Arch, Utah” by Michael Raiman

 

 

Since then, Michael, has won many awards and accolades for his ability to capture whatever excites him and using his lens to make the commonplace unusual. His goal is to have the viewer see the familiar in an unfamiliar way, lines leading around an image and forcing a momentary pause. Michael says this is what photography does for him, ‘It makes me slow down and really look within an environment; forcing me to be wholly present – like a meditation.’

 

“Step One” by Michael Raiman Worth Avenue Series

 

Michael chairs the Lake Worth Art League’s Photography Group and was selected to be a leader in this year’s Scott Kelby’s Worldwide PhotoWalk. He and his wife, Lynne Ottimer, recently celebrated 30 years in their Delray Beach home with their three feline friends. They are active members in the South Florida arts community and in the Palm Beach Bromeliad Society. More about Michael and his photos and to inquire about commission work can be found at www.MichaelRaimanPhotography.com.

Paula currently works as an Insurance Placement Specialist.  Photography has been her avocation for years.  “It became the way that I healed after a painful period in my life.  Going out into gardens and seeing how nature consistently reminds us of the full circle of life (life, death, rebirth) was helpful,” she says.

Paula generally plans a trip go to a garden because of an exhibit.  “I really enjoy gardens when there is a specific exhibit such as the Chihuly exhibit at Fairchild and the Zimbabwe Sculpture at Naples Botanical garden.  This Spring I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC.  The tulip was part of the Tulip Library Exhibit in front of the Tidal Basin”.

Paula tells The Rickie Report, “I shot digital with a point and shoot camera (a Sony DSCHX10).  I get so excited when I see a shot that appeals because of the way the light hits it or the shadows that I want to shoot it right then!”

Paula has been selling matted copies of her pictures to friends and co-workers for several years.  She recently started having them put on canvas.

Paula shares, “Hopefully my pictures bring some of that to life.  My inspirations for my work are Georgia O’Keefe and Ansel Adams.”  She is grateful for the support of her Lake Worth Art League colleagues, who encouraged her to participate in this exhibit.

Harold Silvers moved to Southern Florida three years ago and has gone back to his roots as an artist.   He graduated from NYC Community College for Commercial Art and Parsons School of Design for Graphic Design.  Harold has used ink with a rapidograph pen, magic marker, stencils and air brush techniques as well as computer aided design.
"Carnival"

Harold describes these pointillism designs as “having to do with Nature, Time, Space and Infinity.”  Previous to his move to Florida, he produced window displays for Cartier Jewelers & Bonwit Teller.
"Space"

“Space”

The Lake Worth Art League is showing an exhibit of Harold’s artwork.   He tells The Rickie Report, “I started pointillism in my college days, and decided that I should get back to doing it again, being retired.”
"Wave"

“Wave”

Harold explains that he makes each design one dot at a time.  He says, ” One has to have a certain mind set to do this kind of stuff.  I usually have a concept of how I want the design to look before I start… Sometimes I let the dots take me for the ride.”
"Green Onion"

“Green Onion”

Harold offers prints on paper from 6 x 9, and Giclees on canvas up to 30 x 45.  He can also make color variations of the design.  Harold makes the highest quality Giclee’s.  At times, he might show one of his designs completed on transparent film with a light behind it.

Bonnie’s imagination is driven by her passion for self-expression through art.  And her inspiration lives all around her!  The flowers and plantings in her yard provide her with the images, while her paintings are noted for their unique style, elegance and technique.    

 

 
"From Our Garden" by Bonnie Wilburn

“From Our Garden” by Bonnie Wilburn

 

Bonnie often uses a palette knife to create these vibrant pieces of art.  Having lived in the Palm Beaches most of her life and when her health forced an early retirement, Bonnie was able to focus on what comes most naturally … expressing her enthusiasm for living her life through bright & expressive artwork. Bonnie’s positive attitude is infectious!

“Bird’s Nest” by Bonnie Wilburn

 

 

Bonnie can create the perfect piece for any purpose.  She has the ability to bring your vision to life. Her skills allow her to create a wide range of artistic expressions which can be used to decorate your home, office, or place of business.

 
George Taylor is a retired Respiratory Therapist.  He enjoys good music and has always dabbled in art, even as a child.   George tells us, “I love action, people and musicians”.   He is inclined to capture people in action and musicians while playing their instruments, using a variety of artistic mediums.

 

Mixed Media by George

“Play Me  A Tune” by George Taylor

 

While George works in watercolor, pastel, acrylic and oil, he confesses that watercolor and pastel are his favorite mediums to use.  George also favors mixing these media as he creates.  His use of particular materials helps the viewer relate to the action happening in the painting.
