Updates on the Crowdfunding Campaign for CASCADE and C-ARTwheel Art Exhibit by ARTipolo

For today's blog, we give you updates as to CASCADE's crowdfunding performance.  We also featured Ms. CORAZON PATARATA, one of the ARTipolo artists who supports this project.  Also, we give you the list of participating artist in C-ARTwheel Exhibit at R-Gallery.

We are happy to share with you that we have received backings from friends for the CASCADE (Creative Art School for Children and Adults Deserving Excellence), and we have received a total of five thousand pesos.  We have three (3) backers who are interested to avail the bag rewards and one (1) to receive a personalised mug (with her name printed on it).  

Let me share with you the profiles of the artists who have painted the bags that backers will receive.  To start with we featured here Ms. Corazon Patarata.

Ms. Patarata painted this bag when I asked her to share her talent for the sake of helping people with needs.  She willingly and excitedly acted on my request and has produced this pretty hand-painted bag, designed with the birds of paradise flowers.

     60 years old, with an earlier 20-year experience as a diplomat, is a self-taught artist, who works with watercolors, oil pastels and acrylic paints, in a modern realist-impressionist style. Her subjects are flowers, landscapes, marine life, famous landmarks and monuments, heavenly bodies, and angels, and sometimes there are human figures included in her picture compositions.  Two articles about Cora’s painting career, penned by Babeth Lolarga, were published by Verafiles.Org and circulated in Yahoo News: “A Former Diplomat’s Sojourn Into Painting”, published on 30 May 2014; and “The Traveller As Painter”, published on 20 January 2017. Souce:

     Patarata is with the Antipolo-based artists’ group ARTipolo that has the Haemophilia Association of the Philippines for Love and Service as permanent beneficiary for all its exhibits. This self-taught vignette painter admires Amorsolo. “I aspire to someday learn his techniques with light and shadows.”Among the Renaissance artists, she singled out Rembrandt for the sensitivity of his human figures, Tintoretto for his lights and shadows, Paul Cezanne, Paul Gaugin and Vincent Van Gogh for their colors and brushstrokes.

     Of the moderns, she likes John Singer Sargent “for the emotional impact of his paintings,” Frida Kahlo “for her use of Nature as symbols for human emotions,” Miro “for his joyful and playful abstract renditions” and Norman Rockwell “for portraying scenes of everyday life that everyone can relate with.” 

     Now that she is doing what fulfils her, she calls painting “an essential part of me. Painting is something I owe to my Maker and to the people around me.Through the process, I enjoy many good feelings in heart and spirit.Painting is like praying. It is like a cleansing and uplifting process.”

We are privilege to have her support through her works.  The bag that she has painted is an original and does not have any reproductions.  The same goes with the other bags.  We hope you'll support our CASCADE campaign.  There are still 35 days remaining, as to date.

By supporting this campaign, you'll get the rewards of your choice (1st-come-1st-served).  We also invite you to join us on the opening day of C-ARTwheel Group Exhibit, which features the works of our well-known artists whose names are listed below:

The Joy of Plein Air Painting

What is Plein Air Painting?  Well, for me it is very similar to an On-the-Spot painting.  But the difference is there's no theme.  If you are a traveller and you are fond of seeing beautiful spots, you can start exploring the joy of doing Plein air painting.

Taking travel photos for me is easy now.  But I wanted to challenge myself by doing Plein air painting.  I would just need more time to spend doing it and more spaces on my luggage to bring my tools for it.

What are the joys of Plein Air painting?  For me, it's the challenges of capturing the light, the mood of the day, and the colors that constantly change.  When you look at the open fields, the golden colors of sunsets, light's reflection on rice paddies, and the changing hues of trees creates a romantic feeling within me.  I feel elated by just holding my brushes and dipping its hair on paints.  A dabble on the canvas erases worries and the joy is communicated through your works.

Plein Air painting does not require rules.  Sometimes, the boundaries of four-walls of our offices cause stress. But with painting on open-air, it gives you that feeling of freedom.  Your fear would slowly banish then you will realize that you can create beautiful things with your eyes and hands.

I am still learning and searching for my mark in painting.  We are lucky that the web is rich on references.  Let me share with you this free e-book I found in Amazon.  Let us study together about Plein air painting.  Click on it.  Don't worry, it's free.

The following video is from the YouTube Chanel of Create Content Connect and it features the Filipino Artist, who are expats in Saudi Arabia.  They are called the Hagod Visual Artists.
