 With these photos I am happy to inform my followers that the Jam Project for the jam, relish, and marmalade is running full speed now!

With the small fee, the images are available to anyone who makes tasty creations. These images can be used not only for jams but as well for Recipe Book or other Kitchen Projects.

Decorative Flowers

interior design and decor for wall

As my clients and friends are asking what I am working on these days, I will allow a sneak peek into my virtual artist studio. And, with that said, I am happy to introduce a new collection of Decorative Flowers. My idea is to place a super realistic watercolor flowers on the abstract surface. 

I have created unique earthy designs for the background using watercolor dabbing technique with different natural sponges and variety of colors. 
It allows to make the background sections "to melt" into each other, giving some point of interest; but, meantime, it does not distract from realistic floral paintings. 

This series could be called Botanical; yet, the interesting background makes it exclusive in some sense.
These decorative flowers bunch unites the body of work into a community of color, idea, technique, and style.

It is Botanical yet is is also Semi-Botanical
It is Realistic yet it is also Semi-Realistic
It is Abstract yet it is also Semi-Abstract

I share here the first three out of a half dozen designs that have been created already. And, as always, more flowers soon will be posted into the Floral Gallery and Decor Interior Design Gallery on my website www.artirina.com

Flowers In January

Sequoia Forest And Mountains

Sequoia National Park painting

The first painting of the New Year is the Winter forest of Sequoia National Park. I love visiting this place, mostly in the Spring and Summer. And, I got lucky to see it once in the coldest season of the year. The snow was up to 15 feet. I could barely recognize the park I was familiar with. It was not too terribly cold, but the massive amount of white and blue was overwhelming. 

The National Park Sequoia is impressive in any season.

In my impressionistic painting above the giant trees stand still in their monumental beauty, competing with the grandiose stillness of the snowy mountains in the background. 

And here are a few other paintings that I created celebrating different seasons of the Sequoia National Park. These two artworks have a little twist. Each of them, besides the beautiful scenery have a secret to share: somebody is hiding in the bushes or between the trees.

Try to find them.. :)
