Family Painting Together

The Charles Pabst family recently spent a few days at the beach. On one of the days Charles joined his two painter children, Michael and Cara, for an  afternoon painting at the historic Capistrano Mission in San Juan Capistrano.

While each have different painting styles, their use of texture, mastery of lighting, unparalleled talent for color, and underlying sense of joyful optimism remains the same. “It was a delight to see the way we interpreted the same scene,” says Charles.

Watching-MichaelMost known for their textures, brilliant lighting, and gifts for using color, these three artists each possess their own distinct styles and flares, their artworks share the same quiet sense of peace and joy.

As children, Cara and Michael spent countless hours watching and learning from their father, honing their inherent talents and building their own unique styles. It looks like a few of the grandchildren might have inherited some of the artist genes.
