“I love those who yearn for the impossible.” J. Wolfgang von Goethe

Dreaming.  Envisioning.  Longing.  Moving Forward.  

Expressing. Creating. Releasing. Flying.

“To yearn is to envision the possible in the midst of the impossible. Every work of art, be it a watercolor, oil, carving, photograph, textile, jewelry and even the music (Shirley88), speaks to those who yearn to express what lies within. They do not allow the tentacles of the mundane to keep them from reaching for flight in freedom of creative expression.”— Shirley

Seaside First Saturday Art Walk Motto:

“THOSE THAT LIVE FOR THE ARTS, SUPPORT THE ARTS.”

Watercolor artist Carolyn Macpherson arrived to paint LIVE ™ on Feb. 4th  during the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk at Fairweather’s.

In addition, she offered an artist’s talk about her unique pouring technique, thanks to an accident created by her cat spilling premixed watercolors on her paper.

Since then, Carolyn has adopted a highly concentrated style of painting where the rich dark backgrounds of still life pop off the paper.

 

“It’s hard to imagine that you think about something you’d like to happen, an artist painting LIVE for visitors, and it happens beautifully. We are so very fortunate and grateful to  Carolyn Macpherson, who  shared her talent for guests, friends and art patrons.”–Denise Fairweather.
