Even though here in California, Spring is slowly moving into Summer, and many trees already dropped their blossoms while teeny tiny fruits are forming on their branches, I am still in awe with Spring Blossoms at their peak of the season.

This artwork of Cherry Blossoms is created with acrylic paint. I wanted to show how another of my favorite water medium works greatly revealing fine texture of the paint on paper:

And recently, looking at my artwork from the bird’s view point, I’ve noticed that purple is becoming one of my favorite color. I’ve created so many artworks with this hue that I felt that there is a need to collect them into a separate gallery. 
I called this Art Gallery –
It has paintings from abstract to realism with all shades of purple color from sweet gentle lilac to deep violets:

Purple artwork fit interior decor so organically. They bring great deal of light and air into a room interior:

How Art Sold A House

This Summer was quite busy for me. Besides two art shows in two different states (Colorado and New York), and exhibiting locally here in California; my family moved to a new house. And we wanted to sell our old house. So, I switched my hats from the artist to a decorator and designer for a while. 
As I had some originals available and a few prints made from my past work, it was easy. The framing process has begun; and the Pink Rose In The Garden (above photo reference) was proudly placed in the living room hallway. 

A few canvas prints with Petals-Petals series were “taking a bath” in the master bedroom upstairs..

Three yummy Pears on a watercolor canvas were getting close to a dangerous for pears place, THE Kitchen ;0)

My Sorrento Lemons (a copy of the sold artwork) was highlighting dining room area with it’s contrast of yellow and purple-blue:

An expressive Abstract Floral artwork (in acrylic) was a centerpiece of a living room. It combined all the colors and patterns of the surrounding decor, yet did not take too much space that the viewers would get distracted:

My studio had to be transformed into a dean. The artist’s furniture went to a new house; and, only a few things such Still Life With Sunflowers and a chair were placed in that room:

But not only my art was decorating the house walls waiting for it to be sold. As an artist that appreciates other artists art very much, I had Maria Batkova, Vera Lysenko and another local artist’s artworks and designs throughout the house. They fit just right to complement the staged house prepared for sale:

Needless to say, as soon as we opened our decorated house for viewers to come; the house was sold in just three showing days (plus the escrow period, of course). And I am absolutely sure the art, even on subconscious level, played a big role in the buyers decision. 

Sold in three showing days?!
 Unbelievable, but true!

Abstract Florals

From the realistic floral (in recent post) I moved to semi-abstract ones. 
I was in search of organic lines that might imply the flowers or leaves; but, meanwhile remain the lines allowing the colors and composition speak for themselves.

I started with warmer color.
And a chosen medium for these designs was acrylic paint. It is water based color; but, the good part, it allowed me to place nice and juicy brush strokes that had some kind of body (thick, visible, and distinguished).

And that how the top design was born. One can see there a flower, some leaves, even a seed pods full of life and color.

Then I moved to a flamboyant leaves that can be an implication of the flickering game of light in a fireplace:

After warming up my heart and getting a good warm-up with my brush, I moved to a cooler color and this whimsical forest was created: 
blue green acrylic art
 Then even cooler colors came up (ultramarine and purple). They helped me to pour the waves and wind into these abstract floral designs:

It was interesting to switch from realism to the abstract, from watercolor to acrylic. Once in a while every artist should try this; to me it helped to “abstract” from what I was doing before and tickle my imagination.

Interior Decoration With Designers Prints – Poppies and Sunflowers

I was excited to learn that the company I was offering the prints of my art before; recently, this company entered an additional business. Now, my art is presented at DesignersPrints.com website, which is available for designers companies to purchase. 

These days, I have chance to look at my art with the new point of view.Yes, it is known that the main purpose of visual art is to decorate: living room, kitchen, bedroom or kids room. But a whole new segment I have not considered before. All of a sudden, DesignerPrints opened my horizons to some new venues: hotels, business offices, hospitals, educational facilities; apparently  they are all looking for a good art to put up on their walls. 

And I am glad I should not worry about signing the contracts with all that businesses while flying from state to state with my art portfolio. The company is working for me. Yey! My important responsibility though stays the same: It is – to create art; and, I am doing it, aren’t I ?

:0) 

But as a person with the wild imagination, I really wanted to fantasize how would my art pieces look on a wall, let’s say, a suite of a hotel, or a waiting room at the dentist office, or even at VA hospital.. 

I created imaginary wall and decorated it, just for fun. 

Here is, for example, my new (quite decorative as I think) painting of Poppies touched by a gentle breeze. 

Hm, how would this piece look on a wall?
Here you go!

Just like a garden, or at least window to the garden….

And here is one experimental art piece that I’ve recently created with thick acrylic paint on a wooden board (a Sunflowers painting that I jokingly called Vincent Van Gogh Would Cry).

How would this painting, enhanced with multiple designs, look on a wall?
Here you go!!

Would Vincent cry now? 😉

To make YOUR imagination go wild, just visit my new Gallery:
(this one, by the way, not only for designers, this one is for all of my art collectors :))

In Every Piece Of My Art There Is A Piece Of My Heart And A Sparkle Of My Soul
