PAINTING
"Each one of my paintings is a liberating experience, of impulse and judgement, an energetic expression of my spiritual essence that intersects and mixes with the colors of my life, the past and the world around us..."

Adriana L. Adam "Xuun"

Local artist living and working in Pinellas County, FL. Her inspiration is drawn from the allure and engird of the natural world.  An Expressionist, her paintings are representations of her subject, interpreted into pared down elements of color, shape , and lights. "I love the steady rhythmic tumbling of waves. It gives me a feeling of well being."

Ellen Dargin-Knapp

Laurie Themm Walker

Art is a means to create and share a contemplative and spiritual vision of the world around us.   Growing up in rural Florida instilled a deep and abiding reverence and awe for nature.    Working in acrylic on canvas, this sensibility enlightens an expressive depiction of the environment and its natural forces.

Light, color and mood are the central elements of the work.   The art is a synthesis of personal feelings, compositional themes, and an atmosphere of place.    The process is an exploration of the interplay between colors and forms to capture the memory of a fleeting moment in time.    The goal is to manifest a unique interpretation and celebration of our spiritual connection to the natural world and its beauty.

My name is Makaila Renee residing right here in beautiful St Pete Beach. I am an oil painter from Ohio specializing in landscape paintings. I graduated from Kent State University with a bachelors degree in Studio arts with a concentration in painting. I am currently a graduate student at cedar crest college seeking a masters degree in art therapy with a certification in substance abuse and addiction treatment. When I was little, I fell in love with the ocean and the sunsets. I loved the colors in the sky and the reflection on the water. The very first image I ever attempted to paint was a beach landscape. I thought that maybe someday I would be able to move to the beach and see those sceneries in person and create the beautiful images onto a canvas, sharing that with others. I did exactly that and I am very thankful.

I've Always loved art and painted for most of my life. As most artists know that doesn't necessarily pay the bills.  Thus, I became a lawyer and spent 27 years practicing law in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  Upon retirement I was able to pursue my passion again.  I am a snowbird and spend my winters in Florida.  There, I find I'm influenced by the ocean, the beach and the native sea life which abounds both above and below the water.  In the summer, while in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, I love to paint the scenery, the lake and the native flora and fauna.  I predominately paint in the water colour and alcohol ink, however, I have done a few pieces in oil and acrylic.  You can find my work on display in the suntan Art Center.

mixed media pieces (primarily acrylic). Usually "knock your socks off" abstracts, or women with "attitude."

Sara Mallory Harned

Painting in Florida is so therapeutic for me.  Gazing into the colors of the lush seascapes here in St. Petersburg gives me energy and the light here is so intense that there is always a great source of color-play with shadows.  The clouds, waves and water provide a never ending source of inspiration through color, shape and line.  Every evening sunset provides a new combination that I can't wait to get on canvas.
