Here is a “little” description of my work 🙂
 
This book contains thirty unique flower drawings with their botanical names and the same drawings with their common names. 
 
Use your imagination with the help of pencils, markers, or watercolors to bring these drawings to life. Make sure to either detach the page you are working on or place an extra clear page behind the drawing when using watercolors or markers. A bonus is waiting for you at the back of this book: half dozen designs suitable for handmade greeting cards. Also, this book has helpful tips on framing your art. Stepping away from worries of the day is easy with this book! Relax, enjoy, and create! 
 
This coloring book is suitable for adults and kids. Whole family fun. Its unique designs have different levels of complexity. Today world becomes busier and busier every single day. Technology separates family members by distracting with emails and social media. It becomes difficult to fine peace with blinking screens of laptops, cellphones, and other electronic devices. This constant rush creates stress and makes people burnt out and brings them away from present moment, from joy and happiness. 
 
Features: 
• 30 beautiful, stress-relieving Flowers with their common names, designed to occupy your mind and unleash your creativity. 
• 30 flowers with their scientific name. Same designs; but, more science for you to learn. 
• Half dozen unique Greeting Cards designs. 
• Different levels of detail, from easy drawn flowers to more intricate ones. Pick any picture from anywhere in the book; and, depending on your mood of the day, start your creative journey. 
• Printed on large 8.5×11 high quality paper with plenty of space for you to be creative and work on the details. And if you use black ink, you can always add more details around each flower. 
• As each drawing is printed with the reverse side blank, when you are done coloring, you can detach your unique artwork and frame it. This book has helpful tips on how to frame your beautiful art.
 • These flowers are perfect for decorating with colored pencils, markers, gel pens, watercolors, or crayons. 
• When you think about creative gift, feel free to share your passion for coloring and give your friend a gift of relaxation. Or, enjoy a good time of coloring session with family. 
• Coloring alone is also beneficial. It is calming, stress revealing, and meditative. 
 
Add the color to your life! 
 
Many people now finding out that coloring is great activity for anyone who wants to rejuvenate their thought process, relax by releasing mind from overwhelming stress. And the rising popularity of adult coloring books certainly shows that the genius is in the secret of its simplicity. It is easy to dive into the world of creativity suitable for both, children and adults, anyone who is not afraid to try new things, new experiences, and eager to learn anything new. There are no rules or special instructions. You can’t be right or wrong. The only things that you will need are few coloring tools and your imagination. 
Live to create! 
Bring the designs of this book to life! 
Relax and enjoy being in present moment!

Morning Glory Circle And Art Collectors Masterpieces

My studio is now full of creative projects that directly correlate with a new Botanical Flowers Coloring Book, Volume II.

As soon as I finished painting Morning Glory flowers for the book, my imagination nagged me to create a home decor design for the interior. 
The results are above. I called this piece a Morning Glory Circle. This artwork is a flow of Morning Glory flowers forming into a beautiful wreath with its gorgeous blues and gentle greens. 

Meantime my Art Collectors are sending the results of their work on the Botanical Flowers coloring book volume I. I am so pleased to see the diversity in my dear followers approach:

Botanical Flowers Drawing & Watercolor Meditative Process

Painting of Sweet Pea flower and Clover
Today, when I was painting wildflowers for a new coloring book, Botanical Flowers Volume II, I understood how the thoughts and the process of creation influence the mood of the painting and later on will influence the person who colors my art. 

The music was playing in the background. The thoughts were drifting to a wildflowers field, to my childhood, to the place where are no worries or concerns. 

How lovely.

It was a true meditative, serene, peaceful process! 

Can’t wait to share my book with my followers. Just a few weeks between today and the time when it hits the shelves of the book stores 🙂

My next step is to work on the cover page images.

Welcome to the kitchen of a new coloring book, Flowers Botanical Drawing, Volume II, creation. Here is a sneak peek of the drawing and coloring process. 

The first book is, slowly but surely, becoming bestseller on Amazon. And I believe it is because the authors, Irina Sztukowski ( yours truly) and Masha Batkova, not only put all their love into it; but, as well tested each and every flower from the book themselves:

And now it is turn to my dear Followers and Art Collectors.

I’ve received many photos from them to show me how they color the book, and what results they achieved. 
One recent e-mail says: 
“Irina, I started coloring the pages of your book; and, all of a sudden I realized, IT IS a very peaceful and relaxing process!”

Bingo!!!

That’s exactly what I was targeting :). I wanted my followers to enjoy the co-creation with me, to feel the love and compassion from my drawings. And it seems the results are amazing.
Here are a few recent artworks by my dear customers that were very brave and happy to share. I organized them into a special gallery of art in my heart, my Art Collection, My Gratitude “folder”:

One of my dear followers mentioned to me that my coloring books:


will be a great party favor gift at the events like weddings or celebrations, or Birthday Party entertainment. And yesterday, I was a witness myself how true that statement was. 
My friend and I had an art field trip to a De Young Museum. It was educational and wonderful day. After driving in traffic back home, I realized how tired I was. When we landed resting after our productive “rest” in the city; I pulled my coloring books stacks and we started coloring, while listening to a nice relaxing music, talking and truly enjoy the end of the lovely day with all our hearts and souls. 

I am so glad that all my customers and followers can get a simple joy by just coloring the drawings, and be a part of a creative Team 🙂
