The Spring is right behind the corner and I had an excellent idea to combine my new Bicycles creations that reflect each season into one Four Seasons painting design. This festive design has symbolism of each season: flowers, leaves, snow, blossoms; and, meantime it is all united with the Bicycle theme, which is for me personally became a symbol of youth, movement, and great outdoor times. 

The Winter Bicycle is full of cold colors of all shades of blue. This is a symbol of being able to overcome some hard times in life by dreaming of movement and a future enjoyment of the life:

The Spring Bicycle painting shows Cherry Blossoms all around it, yet the echo of the Winter season is still trying to steal the show. The cool of overall painting has a new season promises, a great beginning of a new Life:

The Summer Bicycle is filled with the field of Poppy Flowers. As the beginning of a warm enjoyable season, these flowers greet us with invitation for a nice ride outside:

And my probably the most favorite design with bicycle today, is a Fall Bicycle. I feel that in the orange colors, the color of the Sun and Autumn Leaves there is so much energy being exposed, so much great warm enthusiasm, yet the symbolism of this season is such that we need to enjoy each day of our life while knowing that the Winter is inevitable:

The Valentine’s month is in full bloom and I prepared a few designs that are very appropriate for such sweet season. 

This year, I decided to make the hearts with the flowers and merge flowers with hearts, romantic things and places.

In the designs above and below, the flowers are forming the heart, just like in old days, the artists made their vintage cards with floral decor.

Then, I imagined a trip to Paris and placed bicycle and roses next to the Eiffel Tower, one of the most romantic places in Europe:

I also added a few hearts and pink roses into a vintage style design, where romance and floating Paris letters are creating a beautiful dance manifesting the Love and wonderful feelings:

And speaking of dance, I’ve added a lovely romantic design with ballerina silhouettes, and hidden rose heart. 
This artwork actually became the beginning of my new series Waltz Of The Flowers (which I am going to share on my blog soon):

Riding My Bicycle Everywhere

These days I am playing with bicycle illustrations for my Bicycles Gallery
There is certainly something romantic in the image of a bicycle with the landscape. The painting is telling the story; and, everyone would have his or her own story to tell for sure.

My story is that I am riding my bike virtually to a lot of places on Earth, because as an artist I can :0)

I’ve ridden my illustrative bicycle with the basket full of sunflowers to the mountains (above artwork)

Then, I brought my bicycle to a marina with the bridge and the sailboats at the shore:

Later, I’ve decided to travel to San Francisco and park my bicycle right next to the gorgeous Golden Gate Bridge:

I’ve even “traveled” with my sweet vintage bicycle to Saint Petersburg, Russia; where I parked it next to the monumental waters of Neva River:

I had so much fun on my virtual travels!
And a good part of painted bicycles, that no matter where you go, the tires will never get flat!! :0)

Hot Hot Chocholate

Le cafe

In research for the subjects for a new commission painting, I thought about a hot cup of rich creamy chocolate. As I mentioned in the previous post French Cafe, my customer said that she wanted a bicycle with the basket full of flowers standing next to the window. I loved her idea about the bicycle standing next to some cafe. Now I am thinking, why not a chocolatery? And the painting had been created. I collect this and other ideas in the newborn Gallery that I called

Freshly picked wild flowers were placed in the basket of the bicycle; and, a happy owner went home to decorate the house with the bouquet. Yet, on the way home, a window of the local chocolatery was so inviting and so appealing that it was hard to resist not stopping by and having a nice cup of hot cocoa; and, possibly, a cup of espresso with an ice-cream on a top; or, maybe, a few warm pastries that came right from the oven..mm..good.. 

As I painted this story from my heart, I decided to hide a couple of hearts in the artwork. Now it is your turn to find them.

In the painting process of this series, I am not limiting my imagination by just French Country, there will be more paintings with new sweet discoveries from different parts of the world. 

Stay tuned! There are more painting to come!

French Cafe

I have created this French Café painting as the part of brainstorming for a special commission for one of my dear customers. The customer said that she wanted a bicycle with the basket full of flowers standing next to the window. And she proposed the idea of some French cafe.
I loved the idea so much that I got cared away with tons of ideas, and this started a whole new series that I called
The painting above has a sweet little story in it for sure. 

I imagined a girl who was riding her bicycle to a flower stand at the local farmers market. Then, she placed the flowers into the bicycle’s  basket and went to the cafe to meet with the friend. The warm sunny day called for a good conversation that Saturday morning. The girls chatted long and even didn’t noticed the time passing by. The Sun was moving the shadows along the wall, but nothing would break that sweet tête-à-tête  between two girlfriends. 

Then, I have decided to create a few more stories and few more little painting on French Country before starting the new commission. In this case, my customer and I could work together on discussing the final composition details.

More painting to come soon 
🙂
