I am happy to share that my painting “Winter Bouquet” has been selected to be displayed in the Office of Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell, as part of Hoosier Women Artists 2022 exhibition at the Indiana Statehouse.
I submitted my artwork among other female artists living in Indiana to be displayed in one of the Statehouse offices. The program is a partnership between the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, Treasurer of State and the Indiana Arts Commission. It’s a huge honor to be selected!

This started on location in Cincinnati on Sunday, I chose quite large format for a quick plein air, sitting on the trunk of my car, so I spent some time in my studio finishing it up. This Liquitex clear gesso has been a discovery for me, working with watercolor.

A Day for plein air! Very large format for a painting on the back of the car, but it kept me loose! Probably my next favorite plein air spot.

Couple of years ago, when I painted my abstract Indy 500 commission, I did this painting also. Obviously it didn’t go with my body of work, but I liked it enough to sign it! (I don’t sign work I am not proud of). Because of the reason of cohesiveness, I didn’t show it in any art fairs, but it was in my studio in the corner. My customers visited me this week, bringing their friends from DC to me as art destination (another honor), and found yet another piece for their home. So grateful!
They also exclaimed: do MORE of this!

This painting of Indy started during Christmas time, when half way I decided that my beloved monument, lit up by the lights, is really not my thing. So after sanding off the lights and some imagination….voilà! Watercolor/acrylic on textured canvas, 18x24.

To commemorate this winter day (with some snow in Indiana), I added two of my winter watercolors on textured canvas to my website for sale. You can visit my studio at Stutz to see them: somehow in this particular case pictures really don’t do them justice.

“Les Trois Grâces”, Three Graces, number II. Watercolor on textured canvas, 30x40. I love to explore intricacies of human form, captured by our ancestors, through intricacies of watercolor: the possibilities of moulding the shape are endless.

“Winter Bouquet” will be going to the “vault” at the end of this month (or stay on my mantel!). PM me for my special “winter” price, if you are interested to make it a centerpiece on your mantel, or a splash of color anywhere else in your house. 18x24 watercolor on canvas.

During Christmas I painted another version of “Age of Contentment” in watercolor on canvas as a commission. What do you think? Which one is your favorite? (swipe to see my first oil version) I have to do one more version in oil 😅 as my “original” is still “not for sale”.

„Our favorite walk” , homage to my dog Toby and our winter walks in the last 15 years. He is still with me, but no longer is able to follow me on winter walks.

One of my last paintings of 2021. I visited this place in Germany with a friend on a beautiful October day, when she sent me this winter photo of the place I just had to paint it! It’s textured watercolor on long 16x40 canvas: photo really doesn’t give it justice. Title?

More photos in the comments.

Yesterday I had pleasure to draw life model in zoom session from academy La Grand Chaumiere in Paris. Zoom drawing has its pros and cons, I realized. Of course nothing can substitute LIFE anything, but …On zoom you can’t see details, and that forces you concentrate on big shapes. As much as I like camaraderie and company of fellow artists, I enjoyed solitude of my studio for the afternoon. Probably because I have been to the academy, I could feel the atmosphere of that studio.
