"Reflection" 8x10 oil on linen

As a raw vegan, I don't have a toaster in my possession, and I painted this one from the photo for DPW challenge . As I  was painting though, I decided to pay a visit to a Good Will and buy a shiny toaster just to have it in my collection of still life props . It was really fun to paint .

It's for sale too: $ 250.00, free shipping

"Hohloma" 8x10 oil on linen

Golden Hohloma is a bright phenomenon of Russian folk arts.  Traditionally hohloma tableware items were produced in the monasteries and were designed primarily for the Zhar's Court.
Here is few pieces I have in my collection.
As hohloma is solely native to Russia , the lemons on the other hands are not :-)
Price is 150$ , free shipping

"Rencontrer Des Cafés" oil on board 10x 16

I called it "Rencontrer Des Cafés" which  translates as
 "Cafe Encounter" ,
and this is another painting challenge from "Day not wasted" site.
The number of pieces I painted today  is 4. The number of pieces I'm happy with is 2 . And it's alright .
Painting maraphones give me deeper understanding of techniques, materials and style.
I definitely found my "surface" - it's linen, only linen.
Painting on linen with "Rosemary and Co" brushes and Da Vinci oil is a pure joy!!!
 This piece is for sale - $ 500.00

My new Art exhibit at Kronos

I'm very happy to announce my new art exhibit at  Kronos Gallery on beautiful Vashon Island, WA
The show title is "Life  Fragments"  and it's a collection of my daily paintings.
I’m trying to portray the intangible poetry and beauty of an ordinary, every day simple subjects, moments and faces, and express it with my own artistic voice 

The show will take place on the First Friday VashonIsland Art Walk  , when all of the galleries and art centers -- and there are many -- open their doors for the festive opening of a new show. Main Street (officially mapped as Vashon Highway SW) is alive with adults and kids strolling from opening to opening. Wine and cheese are almost as abundant as the wonderful creative works that grace walls and floor spaces at every turn, mostly the work of local artists.
About 20 works areon display and available for purchasing.
Please contact  Kronos Gallery, 
17610 Vashon Highway SW, Vashon Island, WA
