NEBADOR Books One - Eight: Rachael Hedges, 1946-2015

Rachael looks at the world with keen eyes

Residing in Roseburg, Oregon during the last phase of her life, Rachael continued a lifelong vocation of fine arts with the creation of pastel and oil color artworks covering a range of subjects. She referred to her particular style of painting as Subjective Realism because the work encompasses not only the visual nature of the subject, but also how viewing it makes us think and feel.

Her technique in using pastels, presented here, was developed after a long and careful study of the works by Edgar Degas and others. As a long-time student of Rosicrucian philosophy, she enjoys exploring the language of symbols and often uses them in her work. While the primary image tells of how something looks, the symbols speak to our emotions about a feeling. Viewers may not realize these symbols are present, but respond to them and experience the emotional nature of the art. Although the symbols used on the cover of NEBADOR Book One are subtle, as Rachael says,

"Unburdened by ponderous beliefs, young eyes are quick to see and understand what can be said in no other way."

Rachael passed away on 27 June 2015. Her teachings and art are being compiled into a book, with excerpts and samples on The Blue Lamp page.


NEBADOR Book Ten: Sidney Oster

Sidney Oster is a junior in high school where she takes several art classes in both two- and three-dimensional art. She has always done art in some capacity. For the past several years, she has enjoyed reading and critiquing the Nebador series, and so it was an honor to do the cover art for Book Ten. Outside of school, she really enjoys dancing, mostly tap and lyrical dance. She is also part of her high school robotics team, as she is really interested in the mechanical aspect of building and machining different robot pieces. In addition to dance and robotics, she also shows dogs in AKC conformation shows. In her scarce free time, she likes to cook, read, swim, and spend time with her family.
