I strive to make memories from the ordinary and celebrate the commonplace, specializing in “making something from nothing.” As an artist, I inject vibrant color into everyday subjects in my paintings. As a graphic designer & product developer, I love the challenge of grasping a concept and creating something one can touch and feel. In employing an impressionistic, painterly style and a vibrant color palette, I am not afraid of color! In changing one’s viewpoint, life’s mundane “same olds” are expressed in dynamic color. My intention goes beyond creating pleasing pictures, and I look for connections in developing series of artworks. Art captures fleeting moments within day-to-day experiences. I seek to portray my sense of wonder in sensing Gods’ hand in creating images that evolve from seeing only darkness, then glowing light, and vivid color.
This inaugural showing of my F.R.O.G. series of paintings is also the unveiling my children’s book that I illustrated: Fredrick the Frog, a Life Cycle Story. From a squiggly slimy ball of jelly to a leaf-hopper, watch Fredrick the Frog grow up in a lush green pond. Along the way, he makes friends and discovers new things he can do as his body changes. An artfully illustrated book celebrating God’s perfect plan in nature’s life cycle.
Reg Stark was born in Beaumont, Texas and began to receive awards for his art as early as the third grade and continued to do so in local exhibits such as the Art League of Houston, the Jewish Community Center and the Hunting Prize Art show. He studied two years at the Texas Academy of Art before receiving his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Houston. He has exhibited in Chicago and Houston with several solo shows and lives just outside of Houston in Sugar Land. His creativity has been passed down to his son, Jeff, a graphic designer, and he dedicates all of his paintings to the memory of his late wife, Linda
Texas based landscape artist, Caroline Ratliff, has developed her painting skills under the instruction of many prominent American pastel and oil painters, including Albert Handel, Matt Smith, and Scott Christensen. She received a Fine Arts degree from the University of Alabama and taught school in the Birmingham area. Moving to Texas, she continued teaching to support her family. When she retired, she became a full time artist. Seeing a need for a pastel society, she organized the Pastel Society of Southeast Texas and is the former president.
Mike Lambert Life Photography finds his art as a camera is always in reach, whether he is driving around the country side, on vacation, walking down the street, or in a state park. Mike has an eye for the unique, for the beautiful and for what can capture your emotion.
To quote “Steven Tyler – “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing”
Thank You my family. Please look around and see what life has for you.
Mike – kinda old and gray with things hanging and stuff about like a gray old cypress tree.
Light, airy and turquoise – that’s Kathy Golden’s stunning seascapes. Her whimsical approach to oil painting sets the stage for painting beyond what the eye can see.
Kathy studied art at Trinity University and the University of Houston. She is an active member of the Art League of Fort Bend, where she has studied with Reg Stark for several years. His technique for painting rocks and water, emphasizing the contrast between light and dark, is one that she follows in her home studio. She has taken workshops with Susan Sheets, Nellie Kress, and Kiko and Duncan.
Kathy’s painting Decaf placed second at a convention of Lone Star Art Guild. Her work is in numerous collections, and can be seen at the Fifth Street Gallery in Rosenberg, Texas.
