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.

Library Avenue, ink, 12 x 16, 2007 © Bernadette E. Kazmarski

This New Member print is a signed digital print of my ink sketch “Library Avenue”. Prints are made in archival inks on Epson Velvet Art Paper. This print is 8″ x 11″ and matted with a pure white black core mat to fit an 11″ x 14″ frame.



ABOUT THE ARTWORK

I carry with me a little pouch of art materials including pencils, gel pens, fountain pens, markers, charcoal and Conte crayons so I’m always ready to capture an image. As a contrast to working in pastel, I love drawing in ink because of the patterns I can make with lines to create shadows and textures, and it’s just right for capturing that beautiful stark winter sunlight on a cloudless day that shines nearly horizontally in early December, highlighting distinct edges and shadows.

This is larger than the usual 5″ x 8″ sketchbook, however, as I had started carrying a larger sketchbook when I was on my bicycle. This one was intended to be done on site, but to be honest the angle of the houses nearly defeated me. I had to start the drawing three times before I finally captured the acute angle and could start working on details. By then the sun had moved so far that shadows were very deep and I’d lost much of the fine detail in the facades of the houses. I had taken photos and ended up finishing it up at home.

This sketch is also part of My Home Town.

The studio wrestling champions, brothers Giuseppe Basil Verdi and Sir Jelly of Bean, engage in the kitchen but it’s all in fun. It started out when Giuseppe said his brother was a dirty mess and needed to be cleaned up and wavered between a bath and a rock ’em sock ’em boxing tournament, then flat out, literally flat out, wrestling, on the cabinet in the middle of the kitchen. I had such fun watching them wrestle and did a quick light sketch in vine charcoal then later enhanced it with more vine charcoal to blend their movements.

I outlined it in compressed charcoal and then conté when that wasn’t dark enough, and used both white charcoal and then white conté for the highlights I remembered seeing as they threatened each other and acted fierce with they ears pinned back. I needed a mid-range tone of paper to make both the black and white show up, but my pad of this paper has limited darker colors and I wasn’t fond of most of them for this. Then I decided this sanguine tone worked well with the tones in their fur.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

I regularly walk around my little town for my errands, always taking my camera with me. This February day in 2005 was no exception, and the bright sun and clear blue sky brought out all the colors masked by winter overcast. These were film photos, not digital, and captured the reflection on the water so beautifully that I knew I’d want to paint it as soon as I could.

I was ready for the challenge of painting reflections on water. I wish I could have painted it en plein air, but the moment was fleeting and I was on an errand. I painted this later in my studio.

From 2000 to 2010 a gallery in our town hosted an annual exhibit titled “Carnegie Painted”. I participated in the exhibit with two or three paintings each year, and was always on the lookout for new subjects. I entered this in the 2005 exhibit. The little painting sold a year or two later at one of my poetry readings. You can find other paintings I entered in these exhibits in my gallery titled “My Home Town”.

“Sunday Morning”, pastel and charcoal on Canson paper, 19″ x 26″, 1989

About the artwork

A Formerly Feral Kitty Finds Her Place: Sunday Morning

Moses made it back upstairs after breakfast before I had a chance to make the bed, and I didn’t have the heart to move her. So I got a sheet of drawing paper and my pastels and did a quick sketch of the scene, finishing it later from a photograph.

It was a pleasure to work in a looser style and just to catch the mood and all that wonderful winter light filling the ruffled batiste curtains through the east and south facing windows, sweet Moses being bold out in the open on the bed. I painted this on a Sunday morning very like today, early January, overcast with cool, diffuse snow light filling the upstairs rooms.

Look at the date: 1989, very early on in my career. I knew of one kind of pastel drawing paper and had cheap pastels and colored chalk, not sure whether I should make the investment in “real” pastels, and I had my cats. I guess that was all I needed. Now, years later, it’s a marvel to look at what I did with so little experience—if I did this as a daily sketch today I’d be glowing with pride and thrilled to share it.

Birches 1, Autumn Showers, oil pastel, 24.5 x 18, 1998 © Bernadette E. Kazmarski

This New Member print is a signed digital print of my oil pastel “Birches 1: Autumn Showers”. This print is 8″ x 11″ and matted with a pure white mat to fit a 11″ x 14″ frame.

Birches 1, Autumn Showers, oil pastel, 24.5 x 18, 1998 © Bernadette E. Kazmarski

From the time I met the paper birch in our front yard I have always been attracted to the delicately detailed white bark of birch trees which seemed to emit its own faint light in any season. Here, in the darkness of the woods, the grouping of white trunks looks like a crowd clustered for discussion, decorated by a maple branch.

The technique was an experiment borne of an off-hand remark from a fellow artist. I had just been experimenting with oil pastels, which at first felt like slippery crayons but soon grew to have their own life as I understood the best ways to achieve the colors and textures I wanted. The artist friend mentioned that you could also work with them using turpentine, either softening the crayons in it or drawing on the paper, then painting turpentine over the oil pastel to blend or spread. I chose to use a combination of these as well as wetting the paper with the turpentine and drawing on that area with the oil pastel. The resulting painting actually looks dimensional, and I know it’s only because of the different textures in the work.

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.
