To paint this small in size landscape I didn’t use any brushes, only palette knives and using knives for a 11.7″ x 9″ canvas size is very challenging.
In this landscape I wanted to capture a moment of calmness and peace. A moment when nature is still and has tamed all elements. From all of them I favorite water the most and this painting is another edition to the development of the topic of water in my work. Its impressive abilities to transform into various physical states impresses me a lot and I associate them with a personality that every woman wears in order to cope with different situations and roles in life.
Having colourful flower garden is what I missed the most during lockdown. I was dreaming about a small garden with soft green grass and in a circular shape, and lots of flower around a fig tree in the middle.
As I couldn’t have my dream garden, neither blooming flowers in winter, I realised my dream garden as a painting – an imaginary window I can look at every time when I feel disconnected with nature or when I need piece and beauty.

This is a Red Carpet story. Red flowers are the best gift for passionate women that make your heart full of joy when you make them smile. The inspiration came from a romantic story about love and passion. Poppies are telling the story to the wind about the second date of two lovers in the field.
My “Red carpet story” could be a lovely gift for your partner, mother’s day, to a nature lover and flower addicted enchantress. The poppies on the painting will always look fresh and are easier to look after. 😉
“RED CARPET STORY” painting is original, one of a kind. It is created with oil paint on a stretched canvas.
