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:

Both of these Poinsettia paintings look so festive as Holidays interior decoration.

And the local customer from Bay Area San Francisco decided to greet the guests by placing my Christmas Angel painting in the hallway of a lovely home:watercolor holiday decor

Many thanks to all my dear Art Collectors, who purchased or going to purchase gifts from my website , for appreciating my art!

Here are the galleries that are worth exploring in the spirit of Holiday Season:

and,of course, a new gallery:

Artwork On The Cover

The Thanksgiving holidays are not even started, and we are already exposed to Christmas holiday themes in the stores, TV commercials and radio. Feels that it is a little earlier than ever. 
Yet for some venues it is the right timing to think about holidays fast approach.

Among them are some artists and publishers.

I am glad to announce that one of my Christmas paintings, the Pink Poinsettia, was selected for November cover of The Showcase magazine, which will be circulating mostly in December. Editors of the magazine chose this artwork appreciating a realistic approach combined with continuous decorative floral pattern so well suited for the holiday’s spirit. 

Established in 1996, The Showcase offers the community a professional magazine with informative columns, community news, community calendars, and articles.

Full Issue is here:

It is time to update my Christmas decorations and bring the holiday related paintings off the walls. I hope, it will give the flowers blooms an opportunity to push Miss Winter away :0) 

Just a few days left for my Poinsettia paintings and a Seven Minutes Before Christmas remind about a lovely Holiday season:
Realism In Watercolor

But on another hand, the flower paintings are always in season, aren’t they.¬†
Out of that fragrant quartet of flowers above two are my very favorite:

The Magnolia bloom painting:
Watercolor flower bloom
The reason why it is one of my favorite is that Magnolia bud is gentle, fuzzy, sweet, pink and it is about a beginning; the beginning of a new life, a new pretty flower. 

And another “artist’s pet” on that wall is a Pink Tiger Lilly:
floral painting
I think the wet-on-wet technique that I used while painting this flower’s petals allowed to achieve the texture of the flower: glossy yet fuzzy, cold yet warm…And also, the full bloom of this flower tells a story about a short yet graceful life full of pink glory.¬†

I am happy to present a young talented composer Rebecca Tripp with her lovely music. 


Rebecca creates short compositions and compliments them with Art from many great artists. I am so glad my Poinsettia paintings grabbed her attention :0)
