Crystal Kedziora Goodman
Crystal, a self-professed military brat, grew up studying art and visiting art museums while her father, also an artist, was stationed in England and Europe. "I grew up smelling paint and turpentine," she says. She moved back to San Angelo from Austin, where she painted numerous murals in homes and outdoor art in the Austin area. Her artistic talents as well as her interest in researching history and teaching art to children have added a special dimension to her outdoor art in San Angelo.
Goodman continues to work on ..., 10 Mar 2011 [cached]
Goodman continues to work on the painting. The San Angelo Art Club president has painted several large-scale murals in downtown San Angelo.
Goodman has been painting all her life, she said, following in the footsteps of her father, who was an oil painter.
Crystal Goodman believes artists are a little eccentric, and she's no different.
"I'm actually Polish, and I was going to take my maiden name Kedziora," Goodman said.
The loophole worked, Goodman said, and now "I take a shower every day in the baptismal. My friends say, 'You're saved every day.' "
SAN ANGELO, Texas - Mural artist Crystal Goodman approaches her duties as San Angelo Art Club president much like she does the task of painting old buildings: first by seeing the potential.
Since taking on her new post at the art club in September, Goodman has encouraged membership from a variety of artists, not just painters, and has lined up colleagues to teach workshops to the community, better using the gallery's available space.
"It wasn't being utilized to its full potential," Goodman said of the gallery.
Goodman became an art club member, she said, because she likes socializing with other artists.
"Artists sometimes can be complicated people," she said. "It's hard for folks that have a 9 to 5 job (to understand) that artists are constantly creating in their head 24/7. Nobody understands that better than another artist or creative person."
Goodman has been painting all her life, she said, following in the footsteps of her father, who was an oil painter.
"I watched him paint, and every once in a while he'd give me a canvas and some paints and I'd paint alongside him," she said. "We were Air Force, so we moved every year of my life growing up, and he retired here in San Angelo.
"When I got married, I started painting my children's rooms in themes. Then friends started calling and saying, 'Hey, would you paint my child's room?' I would charge a small fee."
Goodman said she didn't call herself a mural artist until she was dubbed so by a school official in Rogers, near Austin.
"This woman said, 'We want a theme in the hall for the kids showing a transition from sports to music to book study. I gave her a price, and she laughed and said, 'I thought a mural artist would charge more than that.' I said, 'What's a mural artist?' And she said, 'Well, you're a mural artist.' "
Goodman became an established mural artist in the Austin area but moved back to San Angelo with her children following a divorce.
"I saved up a bunch of money so I could do it full time," she said. "When my kids were teenagers, I quit my full-time job and became a full-time mural artist, and that was in 1999."
Like another local artist, Rene Alvarado, Goodman bought a church and made it her studio and home.
"A few years back, these old buildings used to be red brick," Goodman said.
Goodman said she most enjoyed painting the Deadhorse Saloon building.
"It's flat facade that I painted to make look like 3-D red brick," a style called trompe l'oeil, she said.
"I love to do trompe l'oeil paintings," she said. "It's painting extreme realism that people want to touch the area to make sure it's not real, because it looks so real."
Many mural artists become proficient painting a specific subject, but Goodman said she enjoys challenging herself.
Some people go to a day ..., 11 Nov 2007 [cached]
Some people go to a day spa and listen to soft music to relax, but local artist Crystal Goodman says the equivalent for her is painting bricks.
While the artist is better-known for her historical murals in downtown San Angelo, she is lending her talents to the city's Downtown Fa<0x00E7>ade Improvement Program to help local businesses improve their buildings' exteriors.Working with Historic Murals of San Angelo, she recently finished painting bricks on the exterior of Fuentes Cafe Downtown and is now working on the Johnny's Appliance building at 230 N. Chadbourne St.
"The fa<0x00E7>ades are easy because of the brick design," Goodman said of some of her recent work.
In the nearly four weeks that it took her to paint bricks on Fuentes Cafe, she got used to the "You missed a spot" comment from passers-by.She said she painted 15,000 bricks for the project.
Goodman gave about 80 percent of the bricks some shadowing so that they have a 3-D effect, instead of just looking like red rectangles.
"I knew it would look good, but it turned out better than I expected," Goodman said of the Fuentes project."There's a few things I would do differently, as with any art project."
Goodman has been using Kein, a German paint designed to absorb into brick or concrete.

Many people have helped make the project successful, including artist Crystal Kedziora Goodman, who has painted all three of the permanent downtown murals. (Crystal and two other artists painted the storefront murals on North Chadbourne Street.)
Crystal will team up with local artist Raul Ruiz for the mural.
Five of the demolished structures, including the county's Victorian-style courthouse, will live again in the new mural, which will be painted by Crystal.
