Eric Fischl
Eric Fischl has become the painter laureate of American anxiety in the eighties. From the moment that he exhibited "Sleepwalker", 1979, his image of a teenage boy resentfully jerking off in a suburban wading pool, Fischl has zeroed in on the discontents of the White Tribe whose territory stretches from Scarsdale to Anaheim: unreachable kids, grotesque parents, small convulsions of voyeurism and barely concealed incestuous longing.

Hector Leonardi

Essay by Jonathan Goodman

Hector Leonardi's works are filled with a passionate love of painting. His unusual skill as an abstract painter owes its evocative force to his command of color.

His palette can range from pastels to the somber; no matter what the hue is, however, he communicates a joy in the act of painting. In this sense he is close to the tradition of the New York School, both the color field artists and the gestural abstractionists. Color is a primary element in Leonardi's art—who would have thought that it might be used as a structural device, its application alone the basis of the artist's strong efforts? In the case of Leonardi, we see an artist in love with the application of paint, specifically acrylic paint, as an act of belief and beauty. The student of theorist and painter Joseph Albers at Yale, Leonardi comes across as a brilliant employer of color, in both its physical and metaphysical properties. He expresses his primarily abstract themes with a distinct methodology, applying acrylic on glass and then cutting It into strips or small rectangles or triangles of pure paint, collaging them onto the surface of the canvas; the artist's use of close-to-pure abstraction enables him to treat color as a dedicated exploration—it's what gives his art the energy it has.

L. Marie Jones

ImageA 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.

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 paints
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.
