"Barn" by L. Marie Jones
A native of Cleveland, Ohio Lisa Jones experienced here first encounter with the arts in 1971, as a third grader during a trip to the Cleveland Museum of Art. The exhibit was Claude Monet’s Water Lilies. The series of canvases artistically presented Monet’s ability to capture a single subject in different light conditions. The play of light and the swirling colors intrigued Lisa and stirred her creative appetite toward photography.  

In 1979, at the age of 15, Lisa borrowed her father’s 35 mm Volghtlander camera to experiment with light, color and theme.  Known for its excellent lens design, its curvature of field delivered sharp and crisp photos.  As a novice photographer, her initial photos focused on the effect of light upon subjects and the variations found in black and white film.

Claudia Patino
Claudia was born in Colombia, South America where she lived all of her childhood. She grew up in a small town outside of Cali, Colombia and starting drawing when she was 5 years old with colors that her friends gave to her.  She came from a very poor family and even Crayons were a luxury. Everyone kept telling her mother how talented she was. When she was 8 years old Claudia won a painting competition through a famous painter in Colombia whose name is Raul Rayon. Unfortunately her family was too poor to be able to help her with painting supplies so art was a silent passion for many years and doodling on notebooks in school was where she developed a lot of her fluid skills.

Ewa Alvarez
As a painter I am most interested in crafting images that articulate the precise and abstract qualities of the natural world. My earliest influences were the works of Stanislaw Wyspianski, Gustav Klimt, Hundertwasser, and Hiroshige, all of which taught me the importance of composition and color use.  As I buried my nose in astronomy books, and illustrated atlases of plants and animals, my appreciation of nature deepened.

Daria Deshuk

ImageIntensity, interaction, passion and meditation, the individual references, the collective and art is created. The artist as voyeur steals selectively from the public environment of Hampton beaches and New York City streets the images that define the American experience.  Far beyond the standardized interpretation of reality provided by photography, painting allows me to capture the essence of human experience. Condensed into the stolen moment, my choices as an artist extend reality by leading the eye in the re-orchestration of light, space and the pure beauty of paint itself.

Janice Robinson
From an early age I loved color, using whatever materials I could get my hands on (ask my mother). I had a camera with me from the time I was 8 years old. After 5 years of art school I spent 20 years doing photography as well as drawing and painting still life and interiors. But painting with oils, I can mix the colors I want—they offer flexibility and spontaneity. If I am doing a drawing, I use many different pencils to create texture and depth.

Making Encaustic Medium
I fell in love with encaustic paintings the first time I saw one hanging. There was just something about the work... The luminosity, the transparency, the brilliance. It was unlike anything that I had ever seen before. I knew I had to try it and once I did, I was hooked.

Introduction to Color Theory
Color is a very broad topic. Entire books have been written on color and it would be quite difficult to cover every aspect of it within the confines of this article. My hopes with this introduction to color theory is to peek your interest and hopefully cause you to study this topic further on your own. Understanding color theory is perhaps one of the most important aspects of becoming a good painter. When you understand the elements of color and how colors interact with one another, you have unlocked one of the biggest puzzles of painting

How to make your own oil paintsOil paints are made basically by mixing cold-pressed Linsed oil with pigment or color until a smooth buttery paint is produced. When the oil paint is used and applied to a surface the oil oxidizes or absorbs air and then forms a solid film that binds the pigment to the surface of the painting.
