Peggy Kirkwood tells The Rickie Report how she was able to arrange  partnering with the Georgia Watercolor Society for this premiere workshop with Pat Dews.  Peggy said,”During our COVID-19 reopening, while preparing for my Online LIVE! ZOOM watercolor classes, I’ve been admiring Pat Dews “Discoveries in Watermedia” book along with multiple images I’ve come across in past issues of Palette Magazine and Watermedia Focus by Skip Lawrence and Christopher Schink. I came across an article about Pat Dews and began reading. The article mentioned she lived in Hobe Sound at the time. I think the article was written back in 1995 or so. I emailed Pat to ask her if she might be interested in doing a workshop with The New Studio in 2021. The very next day Pat called me in tears. A new friendship was immediately formed”!

Peggy continues, “Pat said, in tears, “You have no idea of what you’ve just done!” I’m thinking, “She’s in tears ut oh…What have I just done?” Pat explained that she has never been involved with the South Florida Artist Community because she travels so much doing her workshops throughout the world. She and her husband just signed a contract on their home of over 45 years in the North East. Pat and her best friend have shared a studio in this Northeastern town and have painted during the summers together over this 45 year period. She cannot travel north to pack up her home and studio because of the COVID virus. All of her workshops have been cancelled through the end of the year due to the virus. She was so happy to hear about The New Studio. I explained to Pat that we were just down US1 in Jupiter and now open with social distancing and wearing masks. I invited Pat to come to the Studio on Friday of the week to see our space and how I am set up for my Online LIVE! Zoom classes. I suggested we could possibly partner with her and the other organizations to do her workshops from The New Studio via ZOOM Online LIVE!. Pat’s first cancelled workshop was to be in August”.

 

 

“Unnamed” by Pat Dews

 

It was organic, as Peggy describes, “Pat came to the Studio, loved the space, loved the light,  and enjoyed meeting our “Social Distancing with Masks” students. We scheduled a ZOOM meeting with Viviane Van Giesen, the new President of the Georgia Watercolor Society. Another friendship immediately formed”!

 

“Viviane saw our set up via ZOOM and suggested she meet with her Board of Directors to see if they would be interested in reinstating the workshop and offering it Online LIVE with Zoom from The New Studio. I’m pleased to let you know Pat is doing a LIVE! Opening Ceremony Awards Presentation on August 22nd for GWS’s Member Show Opening along with a 3 day “Abstracting Nature” workshop via ZOOM and NSVA on Aug. 27, 28, 29, 2020. Times for the workshop are 9 am to 12 pm. The cost is $200.00. Registration is through GWS”.

 

 

The excitement continues!  Peggy shares, “In addition, Pat will be doing another workshop via ZOOM and NSVA with an organization in Indiana sometime in Oct. 2020 along with another workshop to be announced soon!  Pat called me last week to tell me, “I just want you to know that you are never getting rid of me!” Such an amazing blessing and opportunity for future collaborations creating win/win situations for all!!! I truly believe this was not a coincidence but by the Grace of God”!

 

Pat Dews shares, “Rather than painting the realistic image before me, I paint the abstract essence of my subject. I am drawn to the abstract shapes and textures of flowers, rocks, water, bridges, old and rusted metal and crumbled walls.  In my three day online workshop, streamlined with Zoom through the New Studio for the Visual Arts, Inc. in Jupiter, FL we will cover much ground.  The main focus is design, which is everything. Through lectures, demos and design projects, students will learn how to compose paintings based on the Principles and Elements of Design. Critiques of my paintings in progress will significantly help you on your painting journey. 

 

I love to share what I know and help make better painters.  I give 150 % and students often tell me, that they never work the same again.  There will be an opportunity after the workshop to have private critiques with Pat from her home through FaceTime.
Hoping you join us for a dynamic journey”.

“Working With Scary Greens” by Ted Matz

 

 

Ted Matz has developed a series of weekly scheduled Virtual Painting Demonstrations that will concentrate on common problems that students have with their work, along with the concepts that can be applied to any medium. He tells The Rickie Report, ” Trailer videos are being planned and sent out 3 days prior to my demonstration videos. The trailers will be released on Mondays and the Demonstrations will occur on the following Thursdays. These are not live videos; the student can watch them at their own convenience”.

 

Once the viewer has completed the suggested exercises, they then may take a photo of their work, send the photo to Ted at tedmatz@comcast.net. Once that is received Ted will give a critique of the work that they completed.

 

To access the video demonstrations the student simply has to click on the link provided via email or on The New Studio website www.thenewstudiova.net

 

The trailers are designed to generate excitement about the demonstrations and also to inform people of what the subject matter will be for that week. The videos are tentatively planned to begin the week of March 23.

 

See tentative schedule below:

  • “Scary Greens”, March 23; In this video the world of greens will be demystified and the student will be shown how with a few simple color mixing techniques they can make rich, vibrant greens.

 

  • “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark”, April 2; Students have a tendency to paint with weak values and non-saturated colors, in this video they will learn how to challenge themselves to venture into the dark, enjoy it and make in the end make their lights sing.

 

  • “Being in the Red”, April 9; This video will illustrate how to keep the warm colors warm and avoid painting pink tomatoes. The student will learn how to layer color to make your reds more saturated in color and bring out the vibrancy of their color choices.

JANET  ROGERS

 

 

 

Portrait by Janet Rogers

February 17-18   SESSION I –   “WATERCOLOR IMPRESSIONS – FLOWERS TO LANDSCAPE”

9 am – 4 pm    $300​

Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this workshop.  Janet will demonstrate various “fun” exercises geared to interpret flowers in a loose and expressive manner.  Discovering the unique “nature” of individual flowers and “finding” new colors will be highlighted.  We will also explore how to interpret the landscape from photos in an impressionistic style.  Demonstrations and individual help will weave throughout the workshop, with an emphasis on letting the medium of watercolor lead the students to new adventures in watercolor.  (PLEIN AIR – in studio!)  Some goals include “keeping the whites”, avoiding “mud”, intuitive color and composition.  Besides working with students individually and class demos, Janet and attendees  will enjoy “Show and Tell” – and opportunity to see class work together and enjoy!

ALL LEVELS WELCOME     

February  19,20,21   SESSION II –  “WATERCOLOR IMPRESSIONS – THE HEAD & FIGURE”

 

9 am – 4 pm  $375

 

This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants to quickly gain confidence in approaching the portrait and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way.  Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, (which will include drawing, color and paint application) will weave into class painting time.  Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject.  Many “features” will be covered, including an approach to children’s portraits.  No fear in this workshop – drawing help is available – no matter what level. Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s and also the opportunity to paint in a gestural and intuitive manner from the live model for ½ of the last day.  Our goals will be to “see” in new ways — bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure, and to discover intuitive color and design.  

ALL LEVELS WELCOME

 

 

PAUL   JACKSON

February 24 -26

Paul’s focus for this workshop will be to guide you through a painting from beginning to end, as you paint together a stunning image of dramatic light and luminosity. You may choose to follow along and work on the same image, or find another subject entirely. Paul will happily work with you through whatever subject you choose.  Paint with Paul and he’ll help you reach the next level of artistic confidence and ability as he guides you through a painting, illustrating the principles of design, color, value, composition and the mechanics of watercolor.  Through informal lectures, discussions, demonstrations and critiques you refine your personal painting style. Come prepared to be entertained, make new artist friends and find logical and creative answers to your watercolor problems.

Paul will demonstrate the versatility of watercolor paint. You will learn… 

  • How to work in thin layers of washes to build up luminous colors.

  • How to plan the entire picture area

  • The importance of thinking through the composition, good division of shapes, value planning, 

  • What to communicate about your subject

  • How to correct mistakes.

 

 

“Perfect Curves” by Paul Jackson

 

Paul will lead you step-by-step with demonstrations of the painting process.   If watercolor is your passion, then this highly energized painting workshop is for you! Paul’s stress-free, positive approach toward the act of painting will inspire you to loosen up and have fun again. Expect an intense, concentrated and lively workshop where you will elevate your understanding of watercolor.

Beginners are always welcome!

RHEA LEWIS PHOTOGRAPHY

Warrior Goddess Movement: 

A Healing Photo Journey for Breast Cancer Survivors

Exhibit runs April 1 – 30, 2019

Benefits:


MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER
and
LIGHTHOUSE DRAGONS SOS

The purpose of Rhea’s charity project is being able to help breast cancer survivors see their beauty in a new way, to get comfortable in their own skin, and to redefine and re-connect who they are as woman after their diagnosis. It’s not about showing their scars and the ugly side of cancer, but about forgetting their scars, celebrating their beauty as women no matter what their new body looks like.  The imagery is truly a representation of the beautiful inner light that all women share and it reminds them that the scars don’t define them.

 

 

 

 

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer:

The American Cancer Society has a presence in more than 3,400 communities across the country and is the only organization available 24 hours a day, seven days aweek to help people touched by cancer. Breast cancer is the number one reason people call the Society. When you support Making Strides, you are helping the Society seek better ways to prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing the disease.

Lighthouse Dragons SOS:

Lighthouse Dragons is a dragon boat team composed of breast cancer survivors and their supporters. We promote a healthy and life affirming activity through the sport of dragon boating. Each of us is a powerful example that one can lead a full and active life after a diagnosis of breast cancer.

 

 

Rhea Lewis is a Certified Professional Photographer, Master Photographer, and is an internationally award winning photographer.  In 2018 and 2017 Rhea Lewis was named TOP 10 Photographer in the state of Florida and earned her Florida Degree of Photographic Excellence from Florida Professional Photographers.  She has been in business as a professional photographer for 14 years and owns and operates a highly successful boutique studio in Jupiter, FL.  She is a leader in her profession and has served as President of the local Professional Photographer’s Guild of the Palm Beaches and currently serves on the Board of the Florida Professional Photographers Association.  She has been a leader and a pioneer in the boudoir photography market and strongly believes in empowering women through boudoir photography. She has dedicated her studio to women’s portraiture over the past 5 years and since 2017 has been working with breast cancer survivors on a charity project.  She has donated over 30 sessions and over $25,000 to help these women feel and look beautiful as they progress on their journey of diagnosis and survival.   She has had her own scare with cancer and her mother and my aunt are survivors. She has photographed women at various stages in their diagnosis from those just diagnosed to 10-year survivors.

Why Painting And Art Make Great Life Companions For Caryl Pomales, And How You Can Learn New Techniques At Two Upcoming Workshops

Caryl Pomales has treasured her companionship with art since her childhood.  Her love of creating vibrant and colorful pieces has remained with her, no matter how diverse her career path took her.  Reconnecting with an old friend brings you back to a special reference point. If you have diverged and want to get back to your creative self, we can’t think of a better way, than to take a class with Caryl.  Her next two day workshops are “PAWS” Painting Animals With Spirit! February 14-15 and “Palette Knife Painting: Bold, Bright, Beautiful” March 14-15 both at the New Studio for the Visual Arts.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some photos of Caryl’s new paintings.  Be sure to check out her website, as Caryl offers original art, throw pillows, tote bags, notebooks, postcards, and mugs with her images!

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!

 

 

“Cheerful Blush” by Caryl Pomales

MEET      THE      ARTISTS:

 

 

 

 

 

JASON     MATHIAS

 

 

 

 

 

 

Native Floridian, Jason Mathias was born in Stuart, Florida where some of his earliest memories are of the ocean aboard his grandfather’s charter boat “Do Stay”.  As a child, Jason’s two favorite pastimes were drawing and fishing, and it wasn’t before long that he stated combining the two.  After graduating from Martin County High School as art student of the month, Jason was accepted into Ringling School of Art & Design where he majored in illustration.  He quickly became known to both fellow students and faculty as “the fish guy”.  While at Ringling, Jason began his practice of taking underwater footage to use as reference material for his growing portfolio of realistic marine life paintings.  While still a student, he launched his career creating murals, commissioned artwork and freelance illustrations for Mote Marine Laboratories – an experience that not only won him recognition for his unique talents as a marine life illustrator, but also concretized his chosen path as a marine and wildlife artist.

Within the first two years of graduating from Ringling School of Art and Design, Jason was the premier featured artist at (IGFA) International Game Fish Association Museum Hall of Fame. Jason had also been featured artist numerous times and made several print signing appearances with (CCA) Coastal Conservation Association, and has been featured in many Galleries and museums such as the Cornell Museum in Delray Beach.  Jason’s current fine art compositions in oils, acrylics and watercolors are drawn from the extensive experience and underwater digital video he takes while exploring the planet’s oceans.  You can now find Jason’s works in stores, museums and galleries throughout the world, including Europe, Egypt, Australia, Hawaii, South America, Canada and Central America.

Don Ray grew up in Ohio, where his interest in art extends as far back as he can remember.  Don learned about fresh water subjects as a boy, fishing and netting local streams and lakes.  A self-taught artist, who studied the work of masters from “The Golden Age of Illustration” such as  Wyeth and Frederick Remington, Don also learned from contemporaries like George Schelling and, in particular, Stanley Meltzoff, who personally shared his knowledge and time with Don as a mentor.  Don lives near Vero Beach.  His research methods include collecting wild specimens and diving with them in natural habitat,  including a three-quarter acre research pond on his own property.
