How to decorate with floral paintings
When I think of art I think of beauty, I fill the canvas with flowers to express an abundance of life and strong feeling. Flowers are a daily reminder of beauty,
decorating with floral paintings is a lot of fun. In traditional monochromatic, light color interior, choose neutral tone flower paintings.
Give a little bit a drama to the room with grouping them together, group of three or two monochromatic floral paintings in any room is dramatic and fresh.
Striking color paintings of flowers offers an artful way to bring blooms into any room.
I imagine this sunflowers painting next to green sofa topped with pillows in sunny shades of yellow and apricot to reflect colors of sunflowers.
Art collectors asking me - give me some ideas on interior designs.
When you feel sadness or stress, think pink, candy colors like a sweet treat can help to feel uplifted and soothe anxiety. Pink could bring to the room not just warmth and sweetness, but and sophistication.
I created this floral watercolor painting at one cold winter day, when I daydreamed about my summers spent at my grandmother’s house. I remembered my grandmother’s gorgeous garden of peonies. The most beautiful ones were red and candy pink peonies.
When I started creating painting I decided to put red peonies in first plane in more detailed style, and pink in background in more abstract style.
With this modern art flower abstract painting you would create warmth and excitement to living room, and sweeten up your dining room. Pair pink with black or brown to give a room little bit drama and sophistication.
How to Create Peaceful environment for your home
I think every home should be peaceful and relaxing.
You may feel more relaxed when you surround yourself with objects that remind you about something nice. You may feel more peaceful and centered when you surround yourself with objects that express your cultural heritage. For some, a cozy and colorful cushion, soft blanket and interesting artifacts gives warmth, comfort and reassurance.
Peaceful environments are reminder where we have been and where we are going. I think, our favorite artwork serve us as symbols of safety and bring reassurance during stressful times.
Put your favorite works of art where you spend the most of your time when you relaxing, reading book, listening music….
Make important, meaningful symbols the focal point of your rooms. Arrange your family photos on your office table, treasured heirloom or a favorite painting next to fire place. Forget what is beautiful for others; choose colors and meaningful things that are uplifting for you and your family.
I did this commission painting for my clients; they have a wonderful, very artistic house, beautiful and peaceful inside and out.

How to create a certain mood or feeling in painting?
Before beginning any painting I try to ask myself: How can I create a painting that will convey a certain mood or feeling? What do I want to say?
My goal as an artist is to communicate visually in such a way that it will stimulate the viewer’s imagination to see not only with their eyes, but also with their hearts.
I solve the major issues first - values, colors, shapes - and then relating them to one another.
Symbolic meaning of shapes or subjects is very important to me. In this painting the paper boats reminds me childhood. When I think about it, I feel warmth, peace in my heart. Life is too complicated, with this painting I trying to find my way back to my peaceful, worry free childhood.
With the abstract shapes and decorative patterns I express joy and playfulness. White flowers symbolizing innocents, purity.
Window with the beautiful seascape - like mirror of the future, haw I would like to feel. Quiet water gives sense of serenity and peace. Geometric Shapes of houses symbolize order and stability.
I work from my imagination. I always wish to transmit what is pleasant and good for me and I try to recreate this in each painting.
I influenced by everything that moves me.
Which beading threads to choose?
I love to bead with Fire Line thread. It’s prewaxed, strong, flexible and ideal for use with silk seed beads and crystals, which can have sharp edges that cut other threads. They resist fraying and have near-zero stretch.
I may choose a Fire Line for strength; for another piece a Nymo threads - perfect for color match (it comes in 18 colors).
