Interior Decoration With Designers Prints – Poppies and Sunflowers

I was excited to learn that the company I was offering the prints of my art before; recently, this company entered an additional business. Now, my art is presented at DesignersPrints.com website, which is available for designers companies to purchase. 

These days, I have chance to look at my art with the new point of view.Yes, it is known that the main purpose of visual art is to decorate: living room, kitchen, bedroom or kids room. But a whole new segment I have not considered before. All of a sudden, DesignerPrints opened my horizons to some new venues: hotels, business offices, hospitals, educational facilities; apparently  they are all looking for a good art to put up on their walls. 

And I am glad I should not worry about signing the contracts with all that businesses while flying from state to state with my art portfolio. The company is working for me. Yey! My important responsibility though stays the same: It is – to create art; and, I am doing it, aren’t I ?

:0) 

But as a person with the wild imagination, I really wanted to fantasize how would my art pieces look on a wall, let’s say, a suite of a hotel, or a waiting room at the dentist office, or even at VA hospital.. 

I created imaginary wall and decorated it, just for fun. 

Here is, for example, my new (quite decorative as I think) painting of Poppies touched by a gentle breeze. 

Hm, how would this piece look on a wall?
Here you go!

Just like a garden, or at least window to the garden….

And here is one experimental art piece that I’ve recently created with thick acrylic paint on a wooden board (a Sunflowers painting that I jokingly called Vincent Van Gogh Would Cry).

How would this painting, enhanced with multiple designs, look on a wall?
Here you go!!

Would Vincent cry now? 😉

Painting California Poppies

California Poppies (scientific name Eschscholzia Californica) sometimes are called a Cup of Gold. They are official California state flowers.

I found this small golden field when going one day to Blake Garden in Berkeley Hills for a plain-air session. I was so occupied painting another field of Red Poppies that I only had a few minutes to run around the park and take some photos. In contrary to the poppies that I painted that day (see painting below), these orange cuties were volunteers. They just spread around the park glowing and bringing light and cheer.

As I recall, it was a little meadow with the Red and Pink poppies hiding in the forest like garden.

The red ones were planted by people. 

The orange ones were probably brought by birds and wind. 

They decided to locate themselves wherever was comfortable: on a pathway that brought the artists to a marvelous view of the San Francisco Bay
I painted an artist there who came to paint California Poppies; so, that there is more to the story. When the viewer comes to the painting, the fist thing he/she sees are the poppies: bright, orange, big. Yet with more careful observation, you can notice that somebody else is there admiring the orange flowers at the Bay. 

In the last couple of years I painted quite a few of those orange flowers. But the painting above is probably the largest one 
(original painting California Poppies is 23″x17″ on Strathmore 140 lb Watercolor paper) 
 and it has a story

Watercolor Tulips – Bay Area Flowers – San Francisco

Fine Art, Flowers, garden, Golden Gate Park, Painting, poppies, realism in watercolor, red, San Francisco, Sztukowski, tulips, Watercolor, watercolour, yellow
A couple of years ago the Tulip Garden in San Francisco Golden Gate Park was “on fire” with red and yellow tulips and poppies. 

I love tulips, every single stage of those flowers: the buds, a slightly opened mystery, and Boom! full bloom when the flowers expose their intricate beauty..

In this painting, the part of my Bay Area Flowers series, I tried to capture each stage.  
………………………………………..
The original Tulip Garden in San Francisco painting is 27″x21″ watercolor on Hot Pressed 140lb Arches Paper.
