Meet Aline Ordman

Oil | Pastel

I often say I am a painter rather than an artist.  I love to create pictures that reflect the beauty I see in anything from a lovely pose to a beautiful landscape.  I do not feel I am breaking new ground or creating something never before seen.  But I can get lost in the stroke of a paintbrush or the feel of a pastel on paper.

Art has become for me a synthesis of teaching and painting.  I learn more about painting as I teach and they are equal passions for me. I am drawn to light…that flickers on the shoulder as a figure enters a sunlit space or the way light enters between the trees and then diffuses its color to the surrounding leaves.  Creating a safe space for students to succeed or fail and learn to love the process of creating a painting is as important to me as creating a successful painting.

Meet Desmond O'Hagan

Oil | Pastel | Charcoals

All art is a form of story-telling, and mine tells the story of interpreting light – a constant element in my paintings. Whether it is the subtle colors of dusk or a simple stream of light in a dimly lit interior, all these effects motivate me to capture the image on canvas of paper.

Throughout the years, I’ve worked in watercolor, acrylics, charcoal, pen & ink, and monotypes, but my primary focus is oils and pastels.

With oils, I enjoy the expressive brush strokes and the way paint can be manipulated on canvas or paper. With pastels, I love the texture, the explosive color, and the bold strokes I can achieve.
