Watercolor Abstracts

Although I have enjoyed making art as long as I can remember, I didn’t have time for it until my children were grown and I was able to retire.  I started by taking classes at the Visual Art Center and at Red Hat Studio.  I now spend most of my free time painting and teaching abstract art. I am a member of Sea Grape Gallery, the Visual Art Center of Punta Gorda, Art Center Sarasota, the Florida Watercolor Society, and the Southern Watercolor Society. I am a Signature member of the National Watercolor Society, the International Society of Experimental Artists and the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society. I am a past president of the Board of Directors for the Arts and Humanities Council of Charlotte County and am currently on the Board of Directors for the Visual Art Center of Punta Gorda and President of the Florida Watercolor Society. My art has been accepted into many prestigious juried shows including the National Art Show at the Visual Art Center, the International Society of Experimental Artists’, the Florida Watercolor Society annual exhibitions, the Southern Watercolor Society annual exhibition, National Watercolor Society annual exhibition and Art Basal in Miami. I have won many awards for my work including an award in the Florida Watercolor Society Exhibit, the Southern Watercolor Society Exhibition and an Honorable Mention at the Suncoast Watercolor juried show.  

I work in acrylics and mixed media.  I do representational pieces but my real love is abstract art.  I believe it is the most unique, original expression an artist can render.

You can see my work at Sea Grape Gallery in Punta Gorda and follow me on Instagram and FaceBook.

MARCH 10, 2023
Meeting and Demonstration by Darla Goldberg

“Using Brusho in Watercolors”

Darla Goldberg -Bright Tiger

Darla is originally from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. There she had a private practice as an Ocularist. Making and fitting artificial eyes. As each eye, or prosthesis, is handmade and hand painted Ocularistry  takes a lot of artistic skill. This along with the required medical  knowledge makes this a challenging profession. Darla Retired to Florida in 2007. Retirement giving an opportunity  to pursue other artistic interests. “When I moved to Florida I had no experience painting in watercolors. Friends invited me to try the Watercolor Club and I decided to check  it out. The diversity, vibrance and beauty of the paintings I saw  really surprised me. I joined that first meeting and never looked back.” Since then Darla has taken many, many classes and workshops. She  developed the habit of painting and drawing every day. As a result  she has won numerous local awards and best in shows, including our own Homosassa show. Darla has become a generous and enthusiastic teacher. Her students  benefit from her diverse background and serious dedication to  teaching skills that they can use to be successful.
