ABOUT THE ART

On a sweltering, sticky August evening I discovered an incredibly beautiful patch of native wildflowers intentionally seeded at Scott Conservancy Kane Woods. I forgot about sweaty hands and the pulse of the sun directly in my face because it was also touching each and every flower on that hillside, filling leaves and petals with brilliance. I photographed my fill.

Most of the photos I took that evening I love as photos, using all the lenses and filters in my little bag, but I knew I also wanted to paint a few, to capture that light, the randomness of the echinacea, wandering fleabane and distant wingstem fading off into the haze of the sun, thriving happily in the rock-hard soil.

Serenity-detail2

This New Member print is a signed digital print of my painting “Serenity”. Prints are made in archival inks on Epson Velvet Art Paper. This print is 8″ x 12″ and matted with a pure white mat to fit a 12″ x 16″ frame. Note that art is cropped from the original size to fit this dimension.



ABOUT THE ARTWORK

This sailboat drifted lazily for hours on the calm waters of Lake Arthur in Western Pennsylvania. As the August afternoon tended toward evening, the sky began to grow pink and the shadows darkened and lengthened, and the serene moment seemed to last for hours.

Painted en plein air as I sat on one of the beaches at the north end of the lake, watching this sailboat was one of my favorite afternoons; this painting always takes me back to that day.

Because of the odd size of this painting, the only reasonable reproduction is a giclee or a digital print, but I also offer custom framing.

“White Cat Reflecting”, pastel on Hahnemühle sanded watercolor paper, 6″ x 14″© Bernadette E. Kazmarski

This New Member print is a signed digital print of my watercolor “White Cat Reflecting” made in archival inks on Epson Velvet Art Paper. This print is 6″ x 14″, matted in white for a 10″ x 20″ frame.



ABOUT THE ARTWORK

“White Cat Reflecting”, pastel on Hahnemühle sanded watercolor paper, 6″ x 14″© Bernadette E. Kazmarski

My white cat was endlessly inspiring to me, and I would need two lifetimes to recreate all the images of her that I have photographed and saw every day. Sally was deaf and spent most of her days in her own little world in pursuit of her own happiness, which when possible included a rest, nap or long snooze in the sun. Here she alights briefly on the stool, reflecting the sunlight onto all that is around her while she reflects on the events of her day so far and just what is to be done next.

Sometimes a more finished, finely-detailed painting isn’t the best way to capture an animal’s personality, and especially not my capricious little Sally. I believe I painted this in June because that’s when the sun comes in the dining room window at this angle, but Sally in all her brilliant colors are full of summer.

I had been focusing completely on Sally’s beauty, but one of the elements I hadn’t anticipated when I went to work from the photos was Sally’s reflection of light back onto the surfaces around her. When I looked at the spot after she’d moved, it was all dark. The back of the rocker, the wall behind her, I hadn’t realized until I looked at the photos that those areas only had light because it was reflected from her, hence the double meaning in the title.

While this art appears impossibly tall, I’ve matted it to fit into a 10” x 20” frame which is commonly offered with a multiple-opening mat as a collage frame in many colors and styles at craft stores and department stores.

You can also find White Cat Reflecting in my gallery of feline artwork.

What Is the Goal?

What Is the Goal?

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Possibly just as much a question of my activities as my aesthetic intentions with my photographs of this one lone tree, at the top of a path at the top of a hill, clouds scudding across the sky on a dark winter afternoon, dark enough to dim the colors in the winter field. Something we should ask ourselves on a regular basis.

One conclusion was that I should get lost on country roads more often. I saw this from a distance, a ribbon of winding road before me and many hills and curves between me and the tree, and drove until I found it.

About the artwork

Well, this wasn’t at all what I’d set out to do, but then I’d set out with kind of a loose idea to begin with, “sketch Mr. Sunshine on my desk”. I started out with the toned paper and charcoal seeing Sunshine with his glossy black fur, but suddenly discarded that in favor of my pastels and a half-formed idea of blended color areas on paper with a black outline sketch on top to give them definition. He is so graceful, especially when he turned to wash his side with his tail curling around to the front. So, here it is. It’s a little darker than I’d have liked it had I planned it, but overall I like it. Below, I cropped it so that it didn’t have the white edges. Often the white edge dilutes the colors, which is why I sometimes crop the colorful ones to eliminate that influence. The colors look a little more intense this way.

Dusk After the Storm, 9 x 12, pastel © Bernadette E. Kazmarski

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Dusk After the Storm, 9 x 12, pastel © Bernadette E. Kazmarski

Dusk After the Storm, 9 x 12, pastel © Bernadette E. Kazmarski

A storm overtook us as we paddled canoes and kayaks down Chartiers Creek one evening. We took out and watched it from among trees on the bank as the world turned black then fogged with rain, lightning struck just over the hills around us and the creek ran faster and faster and rose foot by foot. It passed just as quickly as it had started and a sunny evening had turned to a violet dusk while shreds of mist rose and wafted around us like misty sails on unseen ships.

As always I took photos with my trusty little 2MP digital camera which I wore around my neck on a cord. This photo finally captured the mist and the dusk with just a little bit of blur and I’ve remembered it from that moment. Thirteen years have passed since that evening and this misty memory was one of the images I’d wanted to paint from all those canoe trips. The scene hardly looks like the little creek that runs behind a dozen small towns, once a dumping ground for mining and manufacturing and so polluted it was virtually dead, now alive and constantly in use, and often unbelievably beautiful.

Some paintings wait decades to be painted, and when they have their chance they press on until they are fully realized. This was one of those paintings

I probably took the reference photos of Allegro napping on my piano bench in winter 1988 and intended to paint it right away, as I had painted Fawn in “Waiting for Mom” and Moses in “Sunday Morning” in 1988 from recent photos. Once I’d started painting cats, I wanted to paint cats all the time, and thought I should always have a sketch or painting in the works to keep myself learning and progressing in my skills. In fact, I know I’d planned some sort of painting of each of the cats in my life at that time, and from that concept I’ve built my own personal collection of portraits of my cats, mostly large, usually detailed and scenic, capturing a moment, including “Are You Looking At Me?”, “Peaches and Peonies” and “Sleeping Beauty”, and smaller paintings like “After Dinner Nap”, “Darling Clementine” and “A Warm Bath”.

I created a composite from the photos, and determined that I would paint this painting, but moving and other events, and every October passed by without painting this painting. This year I put everything aside to finally let it come to reality.

This was painted from a photo I took in August 2015 and many people commented on it when I posted it. I’ve always wanted to do a simple little painting of it: my colorful dresses and skirts moving gently in the breeze, the bricks in the patio outside my basement door, the bright sun and shadows, Mimi relaxing on the concrete step in the shade of the laundry. Just a nice memory of a simple summer morning. Since others seemed to like it as much as me it was even more of an incentive.

I painted this in watercolors on my 6 x 9 pad of 140 lb. watercolor paper. I enjoy painting on that little watercolor pad, the perfect weight, texture and size, and I’m so glad I found it. just working with it makes me more confident.

I participated in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days painting challenge for the month of September 2017. I didn’t expect to create something each day, even every other day would still be great. Most paintings were small, and I went down the list of ones I’ve been wanting to do.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Sophie was always in one of the windows when I left and when I returned, and she always managed to use the curtains to dramatic advantage. This is one of my fondest memories of her, nestled in the creamy lace with the spring-blooming forget-me-nots in the windowbox.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK
I visit many farmer’s markets through the summer now that every community seems to have one at least once a week, to purchase what my garden is not producing. All the farmers are local and are small family farms and I enjoy meeting the people who grow my food, and who took the time to pick it and sort it and wash it and pack it the day of the market. This particular farmer had buckets and buckets of flowers and in the light from the sky all the flowers were so vibrant I couldn’t pass them up.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

This is the guy who started it all–and nearly the last one to have his portrait done! He fostered every stray kitten and cat I ever brought into my home, and shepherded me through the ups and downs of the fifteen years he was with me. More intelligent than many people I’ve met, friends of mine will remember him as the cat who opened the refrigerator door, took out a container, opened it, and helped himself to the contents. I’ve used his image in other works, but I’ve finally decided that the best depiction of his personality is of him being silly, rolling around in the sun and making sure I noticed how handsome he was.
