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”.

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!

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.

“Rollin on Rollins” by Manon Sander

 

 

Manon Sander was born in Bavaria, Germany and grew up in in Berlin. She was always wandering around drawing and painting whatever she saw and her talent came to fruition as an adult. She studied oil painting in colorist impressionist style at Marin School in California and other well known artists in California, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Mexico and Florida. She spent many years painting murals in Chicago and over time developed her own distinct style which has won her acclaim and honors all across the country.

 

“Don’t Let Go” by Manon Sander

 

In 2010 Manon moved to, as she puts it “sunny, buggy, wonderful Florida”. She loves living in this area as it provides her with an unending stream of inspiration from the ocean and the many things you find on the shore: the sunlight and shadows on surfers, sea creatures, birds and people walking by the water’s edge. In addition to plein air painting she works in her studio, painting ordinary things of daily life which fascinate her with the effect of light and shadow.

 

“The River Cafe Under The Brooklyn Bridge” by Manon Sander

 

 

She has shown her work all over the country and won countless awards for her paintings. Manon is a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, North County Art Association and Palm Beach Plein Air.

“Painting in oil….I aim to share my love of life through paintings that reflect the color, light and joy I am surrounded by and am ever so grateful for”.

“Third Day” by Tanya Witzel

 

 

 

After receiving a B.S. degree from the University of Illinois, Tanya pursued additional training at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Illinois Institute of Technology. The emphasis on color and design studies at I.I.T has had a marked impact on the direction of her work. It led to the use of multiple gradations of value which cause geometrical forms to take on depth and dimension. The result conveys the sensation of going beyond the canvas, drawing the viewer into the painting, down corridors, through archways and between columns.  Thus, they stimulate both the eye and the intellect.

 

“Phantasia” by Tanya Witzel

 

 

 

Tanya  taught high school in Chicago, Washington DC and Maryland while continuing to paint and exhibit. She also exhibited in the New York area and Los Angeles before moving to Florida.  She is an award winning artist who has also had her artwork published in American Home Magazine, The Designer (Cover), Interiors Magazine, Arts Magazine, Galleries Magazine (Washington DC) and Potomac Magazine (Washington Post).

 

“Archways” by Tanya Witzel

 

Inspired by travel, the “Illusion” theme was nurtured resulting in paintings of columns and pillars as abstractions of Greco-Roman architecture. The application of the subtle color gradation, light and shadow, plus the use of perspective, allows an infinite number of variations on the basic architectural fantasy theme. This variation is clearly demonstrated by a series combining architectural structure and form with the broadening dimension of textural surfaces, patterns and nature’s vistas. The result for the viewer is a contemporary glimpse of illusionary forms that hover between past, present and future, drawing the viewer into a fantastic voyage

 

“Ornamentasia” by Tanya Witzel

 

 

 

Tanya is a member of the Boca Raton Artist Guild, Lighthouse ArtCenter, North County Art Association, Artists of Palm Beach County, Women in the Arts and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.

“Same But Different” by Pamela J. Ayres

 

 

“By using vivid color, interesting forms and animated brushwork, I hope to involve and entertain others.  For me, painting is a way of reaching out to people.  I love capturing a fleeting glimpse that perhaps other haven’t seen…I feel it just shouldn’t be missed!  I want to share the underlying message that might be humorous in nature or important to our humanity”.

ManonSanderRight Turn

“Right Turn” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

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 to the outdoors of beautiful Bavaria with its lakes, mountains and quaint little villages. Her childhood days were mostly spent either drawing and painting or roaming around outside. Parents who would frequently point out the importance of never to lose one’s sense of wonder in regards to nature’s beauty planted the seed in Manon to pay attention to details of her surroundings, making it easy for her to find inspiration where ever she goes. Creating art to this day never feels like a pastime but like a necessity.

 

 

Aiming for Birdie

“Aiming for Birdie” by Manon Sander

 

 

After moving with her husband to Chicago, Manon pursued her love of painting by painting murals which are represented in numerous private homes and stores in Illinois, Michigan, Florida and California. Getting introduced to the work of well- known Californian impressionist painters as well as moving to the San Francisco area in 2006 were the igniting sparks to plunge herself into plein air and studio painting in oil. Living in Marin County provided a unique opportunity to study with the best and to finally combine Manon’s love of the outdoors with the portability of oil paints to create on the spot. Oils became quickly her favorite medium, allowing her to have an ongoing conversation with her subject. Under the watch of distinguished and renowned artists, 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.

 

 

Squawk Squad

“Squawk Squad” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

In 2010 painting Marin’s vast variety of water, hills, incredible flora and fauna, unique structures and last but not least that almost palpable golden Californian light was replaced by all that sunny, buggy, and wonderful Florida has to offer. Manon and her family moved to Palm Beach County, 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.

In addition to painting en plein air, Manon often picks random objects like items found in a tool box or Oreo cookies and a glass of milk for a still life set-up. To Manon it doesn’t matter so much what she paints, since she is mostly interested in the effect the light has on an object. Capturing the light is what drives Manon to make a painting.

 

 

 

 

Comfort Zone

“Comfort Zone” by Manon Sander

 

 

Manon puts down her impressions in thick juicy oil paint, applied with gusto and bold brushstrokes: 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 her so excited that she can’t wait to get out her paints and easel to capture them on canvas. It is happiness and love of life Manon aims to share with the viewer in paintings that reflect the color, light and joy that she is surrounded by and is ever so grateful for.

 

 

Lifesaver

“Lifesaver” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

 

 

Manon is very active in the “plein air scene” and has been juried into the 3rd annual Plein Air Festival at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta from March 9-13 which attracts top national talent and is not to be missed!  She will also participate in “Plein Fun”, a painting competition in Delray Beach February 20th, and the Winter Park “Paint Out” by the Albin Polasek Museum from April 24-30.

 

You can also see Manon’s Artwork at:

 

  • ArtPalmBeach2016 in the ArtSynergy booth from January 21-24, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach.

  • “Wild Florida” at the Cornell Museum in Delray Beach from January 14 – April 17.

  • “Nostalgic Delray” at the Delray Beach Historical Society

  • “Floral Fusion 2016” at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, January 15th to February 28 .

  • Manon has four paintings in Jim Snyder’s new book: “James D. Snyder: A Trip Down the Loxahatchee”, focusing on the river’s history and beauty in paintings and photographs. Pharos Books, 2015. p. 12, 16, 96, 97

 

Manon tells The Rickie Report,”Painting is my way to bring attention to the beauty found everywhere in our immediate surroundings, seen by those who are willing to slow down and look.  I find inspiration for my next painting not necessarily in an object considered beautiful in the conventional sense since my desire to paint is mostly ignited by watching the light hitting an object a certain way. Illuminating something in all its brilliance while creating wonderful colors and designs in the shadows, light has the power to elevate an object from the mundane to the exquisite. How light influences color has been a source of endless fascination for me. Expressing my joie de vivre through loose brushstrokes in combination with a well thought-through design and a vibrant color choice translates into a painting that resonates not only with me as artist but also with the viewer, offering him a view of things that might otherwise have gone unnoticed”.
