It is a good time to mention bestselling art of the first quarter of this year. I will just mention here a few of them, that truly became best of the sellers from my art world collection of watercolor.
Above painting of Stockholm was purchased by an art collector, surprise, surprise, from Sweden. I am so happy that this painting print, which is already one of my bestsellers since 2010 now will decorate a house in Uddevalla, Sweden.

Another bestselling watercolor that I want to point out and I am not surprised that it was precisely in the fist quarter, the Water Lilies that I painted one day being inspired by Claude Monet .. And surprising enough, the museum Legion Of Honor was hosting the Monet exhibition this year. I loved visiting this exhibit with its bestselling art two times this year. And here are my Water Lilies bestseller, mine are painted with watercolor on a special watercolor canvas:

These watercolor lilies traveled to Clayton, MO to decorate my art collector’s house.

The Art Collector from Californian town Torrance, decided to purchase White Oleander painting of mine in a beautiful gray frame. Here is this bestseller in all its beauty:

And I was not surprised that my bestselling Italian painting with ancient town of Siena, was purchased this quarter as  well. By the way, the second quarter of this year I am planning to visit this town for business and will paint many more beautiful paintings of its churches, streets, flowers that most likely are keen to become bestsellers of the following year 🙂 . I love Italy, and even devoted a Gallery to this country, this gallery now has more than 100 paintings.
art for home decor
I am so happy that my travels help my art collectors bringing the art with beautiful places around the world into their home interior. As a good example this bestselling artwork with the view of Golden Gate Bridge through Lincoln Golf Park (the 17th Hole) which is so loved by my customers. This time  art collector from Fairfield, California purchased this art for the home decor:

Another bestseller from my Travel Collection went to one International customer from Malta. This art collector was interested in a Russian Cathedral, the Blood Cathedral from Saint Petersburg (the city where are was born):

And needless to say, my bestselling art pieces were also printed not only on canvases, paper, metal prints, and framed artworks; but as well on different merchandise. 
Such for example bestselling watercolor with dancing Ballerina was loved by the art collector from El Segundo, CA and purchased on a few blue pillows for living room decor:

Another International customer from Australia (Tarragindi, QLD) wanted to have my Baby Room bestseller on the cellphone cover. Ah, the ideas of the art on merchandise are truly endless, aren’t they!!

Ranunculus Study

An incoming commission, in which I will paint Ranunculus bouquet, gave me an opportunity to research, sketch and learn more about these special and very beautiful flowers. The name Ranunculus actually came from Latin for “little frog”. These flowers prefer lots of water and are found near lakes, ponds; just like frogs. Another name for Ranunculus is Buttercup. There are about 600 species of these flowers are found in the world so far. I’ve also learned that these cute flowers are long lasting cut flowers in the bouquet. But not all beauty is safe. It appears that fresh buttercups are actually poisonous, yet when dry they are absolutely safe. Some of Ranunculus flowers have numerous petals and others none. I personally love the ones that look like roses, peonies or poppies. Although, takes quite a bit to paint petal after petal..

A Birthday Rose

art that sells, bestseller, bestselling artist, flower, pink rose, rose painting, Still Life, Uncategorized, Watercolor, watercolor by Irina, watercolours
This is my Birthday Weekend and I gave myself a little gift of getting on my blog and writing a short post. And of course the flower is the best object for that kind of occasion, isn’t it.

This semester in school has been tough: managing equivalent of 17 units and working part time was a good challenge yet did not stop me to paint. This simple still-life has almost no background, which allows for the Rose “to speak”. The light from the left illuminated the petals making the Pink of the Rose more interesting and diverse. The dark Green of the leaves helps to the Red to pop and brings the flower top towards the front of the painting.
