Beauty from the Ashes

Beauty from the Ashes

Artist’s Statement I chose the name “Beauty from the Ashes” because it resonated with me as a poignant description of my life and my artistic journey. Before I rediscovered my creativity, I lived a very small and isolated life. When I began to make art again (after years of repressing it), the thought never crossed […]

Anita Parys on the Stairs

Anita Parys on the Stairs

In our current technologically pervasive world, it’s seldom that a quick Google search or ten minutes of digging will not unearth information about a desired subject. When we looked for details relating to Anita Parys, a Los Angeles artist whose work is on exhibit at Vroman’s, we came up empty. Fascinating. As such, we will […]

Plein Air in Cuba

Plein Air in Cuba

Plein Air Magazine was taking 100 folks to Cuba, so when a personal invitation was extended, who was Lynda Pyka to say no? Pyka: I said yes to the trip because Cuba is on the verge of changing dramatically—and I didn’t want to miss capturing it. So, along with fellow painter Frances Pampeyan of Arcadia, […]

Utility Box Art

Utility Box Art

South Pasadena has followed in the path of many cities that have decided to bring art to the streets. Actually, to the sidewalks and traffic light utility boxes. Ten artists submitted their ideas to the South Pasadena Arts Council in the summer of 2015 and now South Pasadena beams with ostriches, picnics in the park, […]

The Neighborhoods in Which We Live

The Neighborhoods in Which We Live

Near the north end of the Hahamongna Watershed Park, on the edge of the foothills, west of Lincoln Avenue and not far from West Alta Loma Drive, artist Ana Marini-Genzon lives, paints, and walks. We were first introduced to Ana’s art during the Open Studios tour in the spring of 2015. We’ve been an admirer […]

4 Friday Photos

4 Friday Photos

Kate Carvellas came to our attention once again when she posted “4 Friday Photos.” We then perused more of her “days” and found more images we wished to share, and we’re grateful for Kate’s permission to do so. And, if you enjoy the gift of giving art for the holidays, Kate’s having a sale of […]

Mainstreaming the Muse

Mainstreaming the Muse

Mainstreaming the Muse by Walter Askin To be an artist is to engage in the wonderfully fulfilling, dangerous, and intensively social act of creating images and propositions as we search for visual ideas resonant with emerging beliefs and values. It is a privilege, a joy, a delight, and quite often a dire necessity to be […]

Kate Tripping to Good Luck Gallery in Chinatown

Kate Tripping to Good Luck Gallery in Chinatown

Painter and assemblage artist Kate Carvellas took a day trip to Chinatown, visiting Good Luck Gallery to see the latest exhibit, mixed media works by Andrew Frieder. She snapped pics of her favorite pieces, continued to take pictures as she walked around Chinatown, and now is using those images as inspiration for her next paintings. […]

Conversing with Ana Marini-Genzon

Conversing with Ana Marini-Genzon

We parked at the end of the culs de sac, then walked up the driveway past the abstract Ana Marini-Genzon Studio sign, toward the little main house painted white with bright blue trim around the windows and along the roof line. It was our second to last stop during a tiring but magical and inspiring […]
