During the pandemic we are all looking for safe havens. The Cardiff by the Sea Library has two massive doors front and back with a wonderful clean air following in this high-ceilinged refuge of words. Quiet is just another day at a library, but getting an opportunity to breath is now much more appreciated than ever. That is why these Contemporary Zen brush painting by Rosemary KimBal give you a chance to slow down, take one deep breath in front of each one and discover something new about yourself.
That is basically what KimBal does when creating these works so in a way you are becoming one with her. We are lucky to have so many professional artists living in our very own community, so celebrate them and appreciate that they show their work freely in venues like the library.
Here is selection of comments from the artist Rosemary KimBal about her work in this exhibition.

A few strokes and voila “an image”. My favorite feeling is to get to the essence of the subject in just a few strokes!
