SUMMER IN PARADISE

 This year has brought the lush, subliminal beauty of the tropics to my horizon along with the gulf waters always lapping the shores.  It is reflected in the rich hues and deep orange, red and yellow cadmiums juxtaposed with the cerulean and ultra-marine blues.  Here are the latest works by Vicky Tesmer:

ADULT ART CLASSES AVAILABLE VIA VIDEO FACETIME OR IN STUDIO

Many of my students from the Naples Art Center have requested private lessons.  Classes are offered in my art studio or via zoom/facetime.  Each session is 2 and 1/2 hours long and costs $100 a class or a session of 4 for $400.  Please contact Vicky at: tjartinc@gmail.com to schedule your session.  Concentrating on composition, form, color and color mixing - private lessons provide the continued development of these skills and enhance the artist's eye to see subject matter and its place in space. I have students who have taken classes for years and they are now professionals in their fields designing greeting cards, being hired for private commissions and celebrate their love of art and growing skills as an artist.

FLORA AND FAUNA - LIFE IN THE TROPICS

Living on the Gulf in Naples - the biggest shift from Chicago is the light and sun dancing amongst nature.  From my morning coffee on the porch observing and listening to the birds and the wind rustling in the palm trees to watching the sun set over the gulf at sundown -  there is a harmony from day to night....a lyrical dance of color filling the hours with the richness of life.  Inspired by an organic approach, the need to capture the beauty of the natural world of birds, frogs, geckos, orchids, botanicals, palms, fronds and lily ponds triggers the creative juices to flow.
