watercolor painting in interior decor
Summer is in its bloom and it seems that whole America is on the move; either for holidays, or for better place to live. Everywhere I drive these days I see the signs Open House, OPEN house, OPEN HOUSE! And with open house there are few great ideas coming to one’s mind about interior decor. 

Above, a simple office with no window is transformed into a welcoming bright creation space with the Summer Garden,  my painting In The Garden

The living room decorative interior has organic touch with these Cherry Blossom branches with the deep sunrise on the back:

Incredibly well done to fit the warm environment is a triptych of an abstract work of mine in beige. It is provided by one of my partners Pictorem and has free shipping on most of the art pieces from my gallery:

Another idea for home interior decor in warm tones is Abstract Map Of The World, and Abstract Forest. The living rooms with these artworks are truly coming to life with those art pieces on the walls:

And it will be not fair to omit the realistic pieces for bedroom interior decor. The fresh, impressionistic painting Vintage Storm adds some peaceful drama with its organic natural brush strokes vs geometrical contemporary lines of the room decor (though I personally would change the frame to a black one with white mat, if I could, just my advice) :

Another great marriage of Classical Art and Nowadays Interior is this piece, The Tulip Garden. This painting I made after traveling to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. They have vintage Holland style Tulip Garden set up each spring next to a real windmill from Holland that was given to the city:

Kids’ corner will come more vivid and bright with the Rainbow World Map. It is also quite educational for children to see the whole wide world in front of them and dream of the future travels, languages, new good friends, the oneness of us all. The learning process doesn’t have to be necessarily “framed” but it certainly can be COLORFUL 🙂

Another incredible possibility of home interior decor with watercolor paintings is to spread the artwork on wall from side to side in the form of a decal. Only one partner of mine is offering so far this kind of service, and I am so glad they do.

And the last but not least a beautiful Collection Of Butterflies in watercolor for the home office interior decor. No butterflies were hurt in the process:

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.

Coloring Book – Great Party Gift And Entertainment

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 🙂

Just a week ago I created a new Gallery on my website www.artirina.com that is called Gift Ideas and as a token of my appreciation posted a little discount code for my customers ( GVVPSS at the check out point); as already my lovely customers and Art Collectors started purchasing prints from my website :).
It is so great that two Poinsettia paintings went to Palos Heights from the state of Illinois:

Classroom – Watercolor Collage

abstract, art that sells, artist, bestselling artist, class, classroom, collage, create, creative, idea, light bulb, Sztukowski, Uncategorized

I gave this collage quite a long name: “When Heart is in
Watercolors Bright Ideas Will Come”. Long but so simple and so self-explanatory.
This collage was born in my Art 106 Drawing & Composition class that I am
taking this semester. The assignment was to show a class room using one-point
perspective and based on our real facility. We could also add either personal
meaning or pursue some theme. Materials are glue, paper, magazine cut-outs or
whatever we could find and apply.
My idea did not wait too long to be born. And as I used to
have a watercolor class in the same room, and I am now a proudly devoted
watercolor artist, I have decided to organize my “Classroom” placing my
watercolor art on the walls and making all students look like me. Basically, it
is me in the different stages of the art process. And yes, when I create I have
that “light” glowing in my mind. Yet when I am tired (you see the girl at the
far left desk?) the ideas are “turned off”. I cut my art for walls, the still
life, and the little hearts from my old postcards and calendars. And the Blick
art supply magazine helped me to make the space look more like a classroom or studio.
The lights for the lightbolbs came from Michael’s cute cards supply shelves.
While cutting the postcards with my watercolor, I had
another bright idea. There are a lot of sketch-like, palette pieces, and drafts
watercolor around my studio. I could definitely use them one day to create some
decorative art pieces and give them a new life.
Studying about collages in my art history class last
semester I’ve learned that collage art was basically initiated by Picasso and
his artist friend…. They looked for a different materials for their art and
started combining their found objects on one flat space, would it be a piece of
cardboard or wood. Collage in its Nature is brining various materials in one
organized space and giving them sometimes totally new meaning… Courtesy to WiKi
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collage
The term collage derives from the French “coller”
meaning “
glue”. This term was coined by both Georges
Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century
when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.
