Artist Blossoms

impressoinism in watercolor

Artist's development is usually seen in his or her paintings. Throughout the years one can notice how an artist blossoms.
I've recently looked at my paintings of blossoms and clearly so that tendency.
Above painting of Cherry Blossoms was painted when I was around nine years old. Thanks to my dad he saved that watercolor to show me now.
I like that art piece. It has some sort of minimalistic and Impressionistic characteristics. Simple, sweet, and straight forward.
Later on, I became interested in details.
The next blossoms painted decades and decades later, show more realistic approach.

And finally, my favorite this days, the Oleander Blossoms, where I painted white of the flower using multiple washes of light yellow, pink and violet:

I can say that as an artist, I was blossoming with my blossoms, working on the techniques and trying to bring out the beauty of each flower.

Art Squared

warm painting

Above paintings, Abstract Design Sunset and Evening Light are the part of the Geometric Design series that I’ve recently created. These and other squared artworks are constructed by placing together multiple squares of the fragments that I have painted in the last five years. Each square is an element of a realistic or abstract artwork of mine. When placed together, they generate an abstract square piece. Yet each design of these abstract squares can trigger the viewers’ imagination and produce a new meaning by twisting the mind and creativity. Just like the above designs remind me a setting sun above the water, the next one might be called Flowers in the Meadow or Forest Light:

After creating these super abstracts, the Realistic Me spoke up and I’ve inserted a few previous artworks hiding them between the squares. And that is how the following artworks were created.
