When I painted bedroom theme for the book Bernard Goes To Music School, I wanted to show a nice cozy interior in soft pastel blues, where our boy goes not only to sleep, but reads the book with his mommy:

He tells his mom about his dreams:

And he also practices for his music school class:

My favorite one (besides the Reading Story illustration) was to paint the boy in the bed practicing musical notes, and the notes are flying far far away enhancing the paintings on the wall with their music 🙂

The main task was in these illustrations to keep the colors of the bedroom consistent; yet, to make each story standing up on its own.

For those who is reading my blog for the first time, here is a little info on the book:

The book is called Bernard Goes To Music School, written by
Connie Du. You can find this book on Amazon. Just type Irina Sztukowski in the

The author’s note:
Bernard, a little boy, has gone to music school to start a
musical journey that is about to change him profoundly in many ways… Initially
he has difficulty singing those strange funny music notes and he often feels
shy around people. He and other kids receive music training from Mrs. Tania, a
lovable music teacher, who inspires him to sing and love music. He needs to
practice countless times before he can overcome his shyness and sing
beautifully in class. He learns a lot, has a lot of fun and makes friends in
his music class but his achievements wouldn’t be possible without the unfailing
love and encouragement from his parents throughout the journey. At the end of
this story Bernard is not so shy anymore and he really enjoys being with his
friends in music school! Music is a wonderful thing that can work magic on our
children. (Connie Du)

Urban Abstract – Red City Lights

Geometric Decor
While working on some quite realistic and meticulously detailed project these days (updated to follow in the next posts), I felt like creating something crazy and abstract. The organic abstracts that are in my Decor Interior Design gallery are taking over, so in order to balance them, I moved to more geometric, non organic, so to speak Urban series.
The vertical lines of the brash strokes reminded me a large city. I left some light areas to create some kind of glow of the evening or even a night town.
So far, three artworks of Urban collection landed in my studio:


I imagined these paintings are quite suitable for not only a living room for example, but they might bring some warm glow in the bedroom areas as well:
