Living in one of the most beautiful places on earth, San Francisco Bay Area, gives a very good favor to an artist’s imagination. 

I love looking at San Francisco silhouette from Treasure Island. 

I always wanted to paint the skyline and the time has come. 

For these designs I carefully drew the silhouette of this beautiful City and filled them with my abstract artworks. 
It definitely created a unique pattern that resembles the Golden Gate City, yet does not interrupt the viewers’ eye with too many details of the modern life.

And for those who like the clear city skylines with white background, I made another , more abstract-ish silhouette of San Francisco that would look cool on stretched canvas with black or white edges:

After saying a nice Farewell to the Summer, I thought it will be appropriate to greet the new season and welcome Fall.

In this abstract design I “quilted” in a hundred squares from the dozens of my Autumn theme watercolor paintings. 

I can imagine how these squares might bring the light into the interior filling a room with the cold air, yet flaming warm colors; and, celebrating this gorgeous festive season:

Urban Abstract – Red City Lights

Geometric Decor
While working on some quite realistic and meticulously detailed project these days (updated to follow in the next posts), I felt like creating something crazy and abstract. The organic abstracts that are in my Decor Interior Design gallery are taking over, so in order to balance them, I moved to more geometric, non organic, so to speak Urban series.
The vertical lines of the brash strokes reminded me a large city. I left some light areas to create some kind of glow of the evening or even a night town.
So far, three artworks of Urban collection landed in my studio:


I imagined these paintings are quite suitable for not only a living room for example, but they might bring some warm glow in the bedroom areas as well:

(quote from www.spiritseekermagazine.com )

November Issue is colorful and filled with Fall Spirit:
I am glad they chose the part of the painting that contained a pumpkin and Fall leaves. They have the most contrast of all. However, because the cover has vertical format, the whole painting (which is horizontal ) did not fit. My initial artwork was a “play” between realistic and impressionistic art. For example, if the whole still life part was executed in realism, the landscape behind the window is pure Impressionism:


I also like that the magazine mentioned my name as an artist and published a small article about me (on Page 4)
