2016 Art Calendar and Art as a gift

Dear Friends,

The Holiday Season is approaching quickly! I already feel there is a sweet smell in the air! It's time to think about gifts for all of your friends and loved ones.

There are so many different gift guides published every year; but there is nothing better than a unique art gift like a painting that unveils emotions, touches soul, and brings joy! If there is a special someone in your life and you want to get them something one of a kind then please consider purchasing my art or if you would like to receive my paintings this holiday year then let all your friends and family know! Either way it's one less gift to cross off your holiday shopping list!

For a selection of unique art, please visit my website where you can choose and buy a great art gift at various prices!

I have also created a colorful Calendar for 2016 with my most recent paintings which can be a great inexpensive (only $40) gift as well! (Please note this is a standard US calendar, Sunday through Saturday).

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions!

Happy Holidays!

6 weeks until 2016!

With 2016 just around the corner, I have created a long to-finish-by-the-new-year list which beside lots of household stuff, also includes my art business: an update and upgrade of my website, studio inventory and organization, etc.

This leaves me almost no time to paint but I feel like if I don't check all these off my list now it will grow as a snowball and it will painfully hit me later. Besides, now it's a great time as everyone is trying to complete all the resolutions they made for this year.

One more item from my to-do list is to try to show how my paintings would look like in a room environment. Buut this will be my ongoing task. Below you can see an example, my diptych "Along the Charles" in a modern set room; the painting brings feel of nature to the environment and light fresh breeze.

Here is the close-up of the painting:

"Along the Charles" (acrylic on canvas; 20"x16" each panel)

Another reason why I would like to finish a lot of organizational tasks now is that I might participate in a new Challenge "30 paintings in 30 days" in January 2016. But more updates about that later.

"Floral Liaisons" painting

Finally! I completed my big floral painting! It took me a while to finish it due to a long absence from my studio during summer months and because of my participation in the "30 paintings in 30 days" Challenge in September when I put all of my focus on small works. My goal was to finish "Floral Liaisons" by end of October so I could exhibit it at the upcoming show in Boston (at Prudential Center, Huntington Arcade - Winter Garden, November 5-21, 2015, free and open to public) and I'm so happy I did it!

I painted each flower with every fine detail, most attention and I enjoyed the process very much. The goal was to keep the background simple and and have all the attention on the flowers.

In order to showcase the various stages of blooming; in the painting I had some flowers that were very fresh while others had already begun fading. Despite the fading flowers, the bouquet is still gorgeous and attractive. In addition, this painting is very personal to me because it represents my present state of mind. As many of you know, I became a mother a year ago and it altered many aspects of my life. They say after having a baby a woman flourishes, that's what I feel and that's what I wanted to show in my painting. I hope that you like it!
