Abstract Expressionist painting by Caryl Pomales

 

 

“It’s no secret that the world is looking a little different right now. We’re living through unprecedented times, and we’re all in the same boat: our typical routines have been upended, and we’re all finding ourselves at home with far more time to ourselves. This time can feel a little bit isolating and scary – trust me, I know how you feel! – but there is plenty that we can all do to make the most out of our personal situations, and stay in a positive headspace. I’m sharing a few of my suggestions to maintain productivity, a sense of routine, and make the most of this down time.

Caryl Pomales Reminds Us To Stay In Touch With Our Imagination And Curiosity! See Her Newest Artworks, Take An On-Line Workshop, Sign Up For Palette Knife Workshop In March

Caryl Pomales understands that an artist’s journey is equal parts studying technique and reawakening our childlike wonder and imagination. She reminds us to strip away the bricks of self-judgment, self-censorship, and “practicality” that build walls preventing us from coloring outside of the lines and seeing the world in a different light.  Caryl offers on-line workshops and will offer a palette knife painting workshop at the New Studio of the Visual Arts March 26/27.   The Rickie Report shares her newest abstract paintings and reminds you to sign up for her artsy newsletter! A portion of the proceeds from the sale of her original paintings are donated to carefully selected charities that care and support our environment and animals in need.

“Everyone starts off as an artist. The trick is remaining that way.” – Pablo Picasso

 

 

“An Ocean Of Mighty Mystery” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

Do you remember playing pretend as a child? The entire world was an adventure. Any backyard could become a magical realm, with each dewy blade of grass a possible home for a fairy; each towering oak tree a hideout for elves and dwarves; every last gust of wind the breath of a dragon. Our younger selves embraced the imaginative, without self-censoring and bringing ourselves “back to earth.” Somewhere in the process of growing older, we trade in this spirit of creative curiosity for strict practicality, and all too often, the infinite colors and dimensions seen by young eyes dim and fade.

 

 

“Celebrating Joy” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

An artist’s journey is equal parts studying technique and reawakening this childlike wonder and imagination. We have to strip away the bricks of self-judgment, self-censorship, and “practicality” that build walls preventing us from coloring outside of the lines and seeing the world in a different light.

 

 

“The Tropical Garden Parfait” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

Imagination is a beautiful thing, and I try to exercise mine every day! Though I often paint subjects that are based on my natural tropical surroundings, I use my imagination to capture the essence and feeling of these items in a dynamic and vibrant way that is more abstract than “realistic” in the standard sense of the word. I give myself permission to see the world around me in different colors that spark a feeling. Does a child coloring question every crayon he or she picks up, wondering if that’s the most realistic shade? Most often, no! He or she picks the color that gets the mind and heart going, whirring with creativity and the feeling the drawing ignites.

 

 

 

 

“No Sun Outlasts It’s Sunset” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

We spend too much time stifling our own imaginations. Today, I ask you to let yours soar. Give yourself the opportunity to see the world through a child’s eyes, and return to that magic. Remember: you were born with imagination and creativity, and as Picasso says, you started off as an artist. Today, try your hardest to hold on to that. You may enjoy seeing your backyard return to that magical realm once again!

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!

Caryl   Pomales   Fine   Art

 

 

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”!

“Drawing Basic Portraits, Simplified” By Bernard Hoffman, Is Revolutionary With Step-By-Step Instructions

Bernard Hoffman has taken his life long experience with drawing and painting to write a book to help people who claim they cannot draw, to actually create portraits!  A member of the Portrait Society of America, Hoffman has shown his work at every American Embassy in the world, plus the Whitney Museum of Art, Benjamin Franklin Institute, Metropolitan Museum, and too many to name in this introduction.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks of his book, “Drawing Basic Portraits, Simplified”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bernard Hoffman starts off by telling The Rickie Report, “Drawing portraits can be rewarding and fun”.  He has devised typical proportional guides, with a step-by-step tutorial that will make it easy for any beginner or landscape artist to follow. Plus, he clarifies details for artists who want to draw better portraits.

 

Various portraits by Bernard Hoffman

 

 

He goes on to say, “No two faces look alike, yet everyone has two eyes, ears, mouth, and nose. They will vary from face to face, so pick your pose and begin sketching!”  He urges us to follow each step carefully, working with light strokes and then moving to darker strokes, continually adjusting our drawing to the individual features of our model.   Bernard stresses the importance of good light and paying strict attention to each minute detail.  He shares, “Draw not only what you see, but incorporate what you learn.  Remember, this is only a starting guide”.  There are many comments from hobbyists to professional artists, who have honed their skills with Bernard’s assistance.  His workbook/textbook shows that learning the relationships of facial details is not only possible, but something you can become proficient in!

 

 

 

Bernard Hoffman has been drawing and painting since elementary school. At age 10, he was awarded a scholarship to The Little Red Schoolhouse art classes in Greenwich Village.  At age 12, he received a scholarship to the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the next year, he was accepted to the High School of Music & Art.  He received a scholarship to the School for Art Studies, followed by a scholarship to attend the Pratt Institute.  In addition, he attended classes at the Art Students League, winning many awards and exhibiting his paintings in galleries and museums.

 

Pastel Portraits by Bernard Hoffman

 

 

Within months of graduation, Bernard served in the US Navy Air Force during the Korean War, using his special skills for recruitment, training, and illustration of classified Navy Air Force projects.  After his service, Bernard founded Benaul Associates, an art studio in New York City. His company grew into a full strength advertising agency, where he did everything except the bookkeeping. He was also an Art Director & Production Manager for a magazine for 16 years before he retired.

 

 

 

In 1952, Bernard was commissioned to paint 16 original color illustrations to commemorate Benjamin Franklin’s 250th birthday.  They were produced as souvenir stamps for a historical and biographical album describing episodes of Franklin’s life. They found their way into US Embassies around the world as well as to international and national corporations. This achievement was recorded in the US Congressional Record and Mayor Wagner of New York unveiled mural enlargements of these paintings at the New York Art Director’s Club. While reproductions of Bernard’s artistry can be found in textbooks, one is also hanging next to Norman Rockwell’s  “Ben Franklin” picture.  The original paintings are part of a public collection of “The Free Library of Philadelphia”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since his retirement, Bernard has taught portrait painting in Pennsylvania and in Florida.  He is a member of the Portrait Society of America and has received numerous awards including the Department of Parks Art Contest, Society of Illustrators, and National AAA Poster Contest, to name a few.  Bernard’s paintings are part of private and corporate and international collections.

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. 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.

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 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”.

“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.
