APRIL FEATURED ARTIST
You never forget your first love. Mine was music. I have many years of musical training and performance in everything from chamber music to symphony orchestras. I loved being surrounded by a wall of music...beautiful music.
Somewhere along the line I decided that I wanted to create my own music, and became an improviser in groups from avant-garde music to jazz. That switch from left brained to right brained musician has served me well as I explore visual art.
I am once again seeking to bring beauty into the world and have chosen to do it on an IPad Pro. My work is generally vivid, often abstract and comprised of digital painting or photo manipulation.
This painting is a digital painting that I drew by hand (no IPad pencil). It colorfully depicts that music is not just one thing or one genre. (Instrumental) " music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." - Victor Hugo
"Flower and Face"
This picture is a photo manipulation....which is essentially a digital collage. I created and colored all the visual elements, cut and pasted them, layering them on top of a pre-existing photo. This woman represents an earlier era of glamour and beauty.
Currently I am challenging myself to explore how social media can build an audience
for my artwork, by adding a piece of art every day to my Instagram (IG) account :
#cookygoldblatt.art. Along with having become a Creative Arts Society member, I have found that IG is a great medium for displaying art and being part of an arts community.
My work is available in a variety of sizes and mediums, including canvas, wood, metal, fabric, etc. at cooky-goldblatt.pixels.com.

As we approach the Spring equinox, the budding new life and beautiful weather offers us a breath of revival and the idea of a fresh start. Of course this rejuvenation wouldn’t be as sweet without the contrast of the winter season, and we certainly paid our dues with this past winter. I am expecting many rewards, including the prediction of a stunning wildflower season. I hope your expectations are fulfilled, your inspiration is as strong as the march winds, and your artistic expression reaches full bloom.
CAS volunteers are working to implement projects and create more opportunities for all of our members. Now is the time to encourage your friends to join us!
