Fish Art Inspired by Missing My Fishermen

Nourished by the Mystery of the Sea
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt.

Koi Painting for Sale online
When I was a little girl-- and also not such a little girl-- my grandfather would take my sister and I fishing in the gray waters of Sandy Hook in New Jersey. We rented a motor boat and cast our lines out into impossibly deep water. As our sun burned under the August sun, and we munched on our chicken and mayonnaise sandwiches that my grandmother made as well as the corn chips that my grandfather smuggled. I was pacified by the rocking of the boat and my reverie was interrupted only by the surprise of the tug on the line and the trophy of a fish.

Detail of Mixed Media Collage
My father was a fisherman too- oh neither was the professional kind-- this was our hobby. However, my father had never took me fishing. He passed away when I was only five, but he loved the sea and his ashes had been scattered out on the water. So I thought fishing with my grandfather was like visiting him. Then later, we would cook the catch of the day.  When I eat fish, the fish is part of me and the sea is inside of me and together we are one and I have bits and pieces of my past together again.

Decorating Inspiration using Koi Art
So this is what I thought about as I created this complicated mosaic of fish. Maybe they are koi, and perhaps they are just salmon. Either way they swim in the glistening water. I take my passion and rip pieces of paper to recreate something new from something deep inside of me.


Bedroom Decorating Scheme using Koi Art
This mixed media collage painting depicts one of my favorite subjects, the bright golden and orange fish against a joyous cockatoo turquoise blue background. This artwork will add a bit of the energetic Tangerine Tango! There are bits of watercolor paper. acrylic paint, art papers and even piano sheet music to make the water and mosaic fish.

This watercolor art is executed on archival gallery wrapped canvas. This technique will allow you to display my watercolors without a frame or glass. The canvas is specially prepared for watercolors and the surface has been finished with protective layers of UV coating.The sides are painted with glossy black paint. The colors are vibrant. You will be thrilled with this unique artwork.

Artistic Cape Cod Painting Adventures

Wellfleet Watercolor
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt
Hatch's Fish Market in Wellfleet, Cape Cod~ Original Watercolor Painting
This original watercolor painting depicts the charming beach town of Wellfleet in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Hatch's Fish Market is in the center of Wellfleet and a must stop for any beach goer to pick up fresh fish and produce to cook up at the end of a sun burnt day enjoying the beaches of Cape Cod. Landscape paintings in the home offer a window to the world. This Cape Cod painting is original and signed by the artist. A mother and son are walking from the market in their casual beach clothes, the little boy topless in a bathing suit and flip flops as he enjoys a juicy peach with the nectar juice running down his fingers. This painting of Cape Cod also includes the parking lot filled with tourist cars that have their bikes on the back-- I am sure you remember going on vacation and taking long lazy bike rides and then ending the day with an ice cream or fish fry. A special artistic element of this original painting are the abstract depiction of the trees and foliage in the background of the watercolor landscape.
________________________________________________________________

Size: 11x15" Original Watercolor Painting
Media: Archival Watercolor on French Made Arches Paper
Optional Matting Available:  Recommend that you mat this with 16x20" which is a 2.5" mat border all the way around, 16x20" is a standard size frame available at many craft and framing stores and would save you considerable money on custom framing.

Interview with Megan Aroon Duncanson of MADART

Colorful Spring Palette Defines New Series of Art
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt.

Original Paintings for sale on etsy!
SchulmanArt: How long have you been an artist?
MADART: I’ve been a professional artist since 1997 when I first started doing murals in Orlando, FL, but I really became a full-time artist in 2005 and starting selling on the internet through eBay and haven’t looked back since!!  I have actually never taken any art classes, other than a half semester in high school.  I actually went to college, and have a Master’s degree, in Political Science.  I know, the two really don’t seem to have anything in common!  At the time I got out of High school selling on the internet didn’t even exist and I had to plan a future that would provide an income, so I chose to study Political Science because I love the analytical side of it.  I am very happy I did because my education has helped me to handle the business side of my art career in a way I probably couldn’t if I didn’t have the education.

"Lily" painting available on artistrising.com
SchulmanArt: How did the move from Alaska to Florida change your artwork? What gave you the idea to create the current Lily series? currently you have done the pink green colors. Are you planning any other paintings in "her" other palettes ( blue/turquoise?
MADART: I’ve been back and forth so many times between Alaska and Florida I don’t even know if I’m coming or going!  I grew up in Alaska and then moved to Florida and lived here for 13 years and then moved back to Alaska for three years and now I’m in Florida for the winters and Alaska for the summer, whew!!  Both places are so uniquely different and yet both are beautiful and full of nature.  I created the Lilly Series because a fan on Facebook wanted to commission me to create some inspired by the Lilly Pulitzer colors of pink and green.  I’m not currently taking on any new commissions but I’ve always wanted to use this color combination and so I decided to give it a go!  Before I could even post it for sale my Facebook fan bought the first and second one I painted!!  I think I would like to try some of the coral and turquoise combinations as well, I think those are just so complimentary and spring like, perfect for the current season.

Find more of Megan's art on her website!
SchulmanArt: How do you maintain structure and a schedule when there are so many competing demands?
MADART: It’s very hard to balance everything at times, but I’ve gotten to a point where I try not to stress out if I’m not able to paint every single day.  With licensing my art now, and having royalty checks come in on a regular basis, it has allowed me to have more free time than a year ago when I pretty much had to list new art on a daily basis.  I still need to learn how to stay off Facebook, Pinterest, and all the competing websites when I don’t really need to be on them, that’s the struggle.

Romance of Renoir

Renoir at the Frick
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt

Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Dance at Bougival, 1883
 If you are in New York and looking for a romantic date night or outing, the Frick has a marvelous exhibition of Renoir's full length paintings. If the impressionist palette weren't romantic enough with its affected pastel colors and soft brushwork, Renoir's subject matter of these fantastically dressed Parisians takes the art over the top. His fanatical attention to the fashions of the day from hats, gloves to the seductive gestures, you will melt while looking at these paintings. In addition to the trio of full length dancers that are borrowed from the Musee d'Orsay and Museum of Fina Arts in Boston, there are other full length paintings of ballerinas, socialites and women enjoying modern daily life.  after your visit to the Frick, round the corner on Madison Avenue and wait in line for authentic French macarons at LADURÉE.

From the Frick's website: Probably the last of these three Dance pictures to be completed, Dance at Bougival is the most romantic of the trilogy. Eyes masked by his boatman's straw hat, the male partner expresses his intentions through body language that is as legible today as it would have been a century and a quarter ago. His female companion's willing compliance completes the harmony, both visual and sensual, that is at the heart of this painting. The touching of ungloved hands and the proximity of the dancers' faces would have appeared audacious to a late nineteenth-century audience. Like the companion Dance pictures, Dance at Bougival achieves the luminosity of Renoir's Impressionist work while maintaining the solidity of modeling that characterized his most recent portraits and figure paintings. The participants are shown enjoying a Sunday afternoon ball at Bougival, a village ten miles west of Paris with a somewhat dubious reputation.

Top Four Painting Rituals

Getting in the Mood
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt

For my artist interviews I always ask other artisans what kind of rituals they have for staying calm and focused. I always find that a challenge. I have a complex set of rituals I need to follow in order to get my mind calm, focused and ready for creative outpourings.

Here are my top Four painting rituals:

Light A Candle
Scented Candles in the happiest Spring Shades by madycandles
Nothing grounds me to the studio better than lighting a scented candle. The constant scent calms me down, keeps me in the studio, and if nothing else, I stay there to keep the house from burning down. I love the happy colors of these candle lanterns by madycandles


Drink Tea
Blue Lotus Tea by HarmonyHerbals 
Whether I am painting by myself or teaching an art class, I always brew a pot of tea. My students love sharing tea and cookies which is so important to create a community of artists. I have a glass tea pot with a tea strainer inside that is perfect for exploring a variety of loose teas. Tea helps you relax, connect with the sacred in every day life, and are also great in helping you cut down on other addictive habits. The Blue Lotus was a  sacred flower of the ancient Egyptians and used in parties and rituals for it’s gently euphoric and aphrodisiac effects. Considered a sensual tonic and mood booster, the Lotus was traditionally soaked in wine and then enjoyed as a beverage, as well as smoked in a pipe by itself or with other sacred herbs. Blue Lotus Tea by HarmonyHerbals  also makes a beautiful and relaxing tea.

Play Music
Music Garland by RidingTriumph
Music is another way to keep my mind focused and grouned. I have found that even while doing my online marketing I am less likely to get bored and distracted by facebook if I play some music. My favorite radio station here in New York's backyard is The Peak which streams on the internet. I also have a bucket of cd's and lots of songs loaded on my ipod.

Slip into something more comfortable 
Overalls made to order by BowandArrowApparel
I have several pairs of overalls. A well fitted pair that is both stylish and functional serves as my daily painting uniform. I own a few in a mixture of vintage and new styles, short and long. When searching on etsy, I was looking for someone who makes them herself and my heart did a leap when I found the designer Anna Toth of BowandArrowApparel. Her shop offers several sexy options. The overalls pictured left are made to order in her sweet little studio in North Carolina. She goes to great lengths to ensure their quality and ruggedness, while maintaining their classic style.

What rituals do you have?

Dance with the Color Cabaret!

Pantone's Cabaret Spring Forecast.
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt

Pantone' Cabaret Pink for spring 2012
Pantone's forecast for spring 2012 includes cabaret, a reddish pink that is a little more exuberant than it's predecessor honeysuckle pink. The color looks spirited in your spring wardrobe or as an accent color in a modern home decorating scheme. While most will want to try it in small doses on decorative pillows or incorporate it into artwork, the fearless can upholster your chairs in a cotton by Glant textiles or use magenta and white toile deJouy curtains designed by Andrew Fisher as pictured in the room view. The artwork in the original decorating scheme has been replaced by original artwork that is for sale in my etsy shop, mimistudio.

Tree Art complements the exuberant decor, but tree art would also look great in any setting

So many ways to love this color!

Add a piece of art to your home for instant style and lift your spirits everyday!

Artistic Symbols of Easter and Spring

Iconic Art
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt

Cat Art in an Easter Basket
Although the basket has come to be regarded as a symbol of Easter, it is also a symbol of spring. The meaning or symbolism of the Easter basket extends far beyond a simple array of goodies and treats that fill a basket. Since spring is the traditional symbol for new life, rebirth and renewal, the basket has taken on the symbolism of spring as well.

framing idea for Easter Art
Easter eggs & baby chicks- Eggs and chicks symbolize new life. Eggs have been a symbol of spring since ancient times. An egg also is a symbol of the rock tomb out of which Christ emerged when he arose again. The chick, hatching out of the egg, symbolizes new life or re-birth. 

Original Lamb Paintings on Canvas
Apart from being a traditional delicacy in the Easter dinner, Easter lamb is also a part of religious symbolism. It is a prominent Easter symbol in central and eastern European countries. Easter lamb represents Jesus and relates his death to that of the lamb, sacrificed on the first Passover. Lamb has been mentioned in the seventh-century holy book of the Benedictine Monastery. Christians traditionally refer to Jesus as "the Lamb of God". The Easter lamb, draped with the flag of victory, may be seen in pictures and images in the homes of every central and eastern European family, during the holiday season.

Bunny Art available as prints
Rabbits are often used as a symbol of fertility or rebirth, and have long been associated with spring and Easter as the Easter Bunny. The species' role as a prey animal also lends itself as a symbol of innocence, another Easter connotation. Additionally, rabbits are often used as symbols of playful sexuality, which also relates to the human perception of innocence, as well as its reputation as a prolific breeder.

Pantone Spring Color Trends Inspire New Dragonfly Paintings

Juicy colors of Bellflower Purple, Cabaret Pink and Tangerine Tango

by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt

A Lilac bedroom is the soft backdrop for Dragonfly Art
A friend just told me that out of all my paintings she loves my dragonflies the best. I had also recently sold out of all my original dragonfly paintings so I figured it was time to create some more. The dragonfly image is pretty much the same on all of them. I chose a soaring dragonfly with golden gossamer wings. After carefully rendering the image of the dragonfly on canvas, I add swirls and dips using my masque pen. Then I apply washes of gorgeous transparent watercolor paint. you can see a Watercolor Demonstration video on youtube about how I create these paintings.

Color Story


For this series I decided to paint a trio using spring 2012 colors. For the three I chose provocative, juicy tangerine tango, ornamental purple bellflower, and a feminine pink cabaret. I love painting dragonflies because of the spiritual symbolism that dragonflies represent to me. I like to think of dragonflies as symbolizing the soul after death,
not in a depressing way, but in a happy uplifting spiritual soulful way. That these insects, like humans, go through metamorphisis in life and death is just one more part of that life cycle.



What is your most favorite spring color??

Poetry Prompts Painting

by Miriam Schulman, @SchulmanArt

This poem was written on request for some poetry to help inspire my new series of dragonfly paintings.
 

The Darner
Dragonfly Painting, ©Schulman
Dragonfly Decor, ©Schulman
Dragonfly Art, ©Schulman
by Micah Faulkner

Static darting shimmer,
to destinations hum on, urgent and pausing.
Eternal and momentary
your path is direct and unstarted, unseen,
and if they would only slow down

 




a moment

an instant


 






your flickering gossamer blades
would shine infinity for any looker to see,
null and void,
from his local shore to watch their paused
dynamic flitting flicker.

Artistic and Autistic

Aid for Abby
by @schulmanArt.

Abby and her therapy dog Buster
SchulmanArt: I was very touched to learn that all the creations in your shop are to raise money for therapies for your autistic daughter and many of the creations are made by her as well. What gave you the idea to start selling your crafts on etsy?

Bonnie Blair:I was looking for a way in which to keep Abby in therapies. The majority of my disability check goes to pay for Abby's care and treatment. I had already given up a house, car and possessions to decrease as much as possible the outgoing funds towards those items to be able to manage the majority of Abby's care. Abby has private insurance but because of her diagnosis, they would not pay for a lot of her care and treatment. My sister thought I should try selling online. It probably took me a good year before I finally decided to open up a shop. We have been selling for one year this March 2012.

SchulmanArt: Did you study art?  
Buy Art in etsy shop Aid for Abby
Bonnie: Abby and I have had no formal training in art. Abby has been painting since she was three years old so it only seemed natural that we would offer her original paintings for sale. I come from a family of textile artists (i.e. crochet, cross-stitch, sewing, quilting) so I do not have any formal training in paper crafting.

SchulmanArt: How does she get her ideas for designs?
Bonnie: Abby is not completely verbal so I can't really say where she gets her inspiration for her designs from. What I can say is that Abby has a unique method of getting ready to paint. She will rub the back of her hand against the paper or canvas and sit for about 10 minutes before ever touching the paint. Once she does start to paint, she paints fairly quickly. I am inspired in paper crafting by the many websites out there featuring tutorials and designers works.

The most popular item for sale in our shop is the paintings. Each painting is different and unique and I believe we have a wide range of art in which everyone could fall in love with something in our store.

You can like their Facebook Fan Page Abby and Buster
SchulmanArt: How do you find time to market the art on the internet while caring for a special needs child and also finding time to be creative? Are you able to make time for yourself?
Bonnie:  I have plenty of time to market and promote handmade items while Abby is either at school, at her therapies or in the evening after she has gone to bed. The creative aspect is always there for both of us. I believe it comes natural to us. As far as making time for myself, on those rare occasions, I like to read.

SchulmanArt: I understand that you are living with friends, how to create a place to make your creations?
Bonnie: Creating a place to be creative is a challenge at times. The kitchen table is the only area that provides adequate lighting and a firm surface. Our supplies are kept in plastic bins and these are brought in from the garage to unload on the table and then placed back for storage after the creative process. It's not an ideal situation but one that works for the time being.

SchulmanArt: How do you use treasury making to teach Abby language and communication skills?
Bonnie: I use what is called the "sabotage method" when we sit together and create treasuries. For instance, we can be looking at different earrings online and trying to decide which ones to put into a treasury. I will ask Abby "which one, this one or that one?" This forces Abby to communicate by either saying "this one" or "that one". The same questions can be asked regarding color (what color should we use in a treasury, green or blue?), days of the week (which day should we do earrings? Tuesday or Wednesday?), etc. I have built upon this method over the years and am proud to say that Abby has a growing vocabulary. I also believe that our time together has demonstrated to Abby that she can express her own preferences for items instead of just having someone pick them for her. It's been a great learning experience for both of us.

Abby and her mother Bonnie Blair
SchulmanArt: What would you want to say to other parents who have children with special needs?
Bonnie: Never give up! Look at the ability of your child rather than the disability. This isn't a situation where once you see a child with a disability, then you have seen all children who have disabilities. Each child is unique. See your child for the individual that they are. Go with your gut instinct. If you feel that a particular program or therapy doesn't work for your child, go on to the next one that you would like to try. Special needs children are not a one size fits all. You are the biggest advocate for your child. Join a local support group. Getting together with those who know what you are going thru and have been there is very comforting. You gain experience and knowledge by sharing with one another. Love your child!


Bonnie and Abby are dependent on donations of craft supplies.
