Water Lilies at Dusk

Oksana was fascinated with water lilies ever since she first saw them as a little child. These flowers amazed her with their ability to float just above the water. These lilies are associated with mermaids and merworld in Oksana’s mind. She has been painting them in different settings and light throughout her life, and Oksana is not planning to stop in the near future.

This acrylic en plein air painting depicts a pond full of water lilies at dusk. It is an amazing hour, since the rising sun makes the sky and water shine with unbelievable colors. The painting is very smooth with hardly any texture, but very colorful. The sky shines with warm tones, and the water reflects every bit of the sky in an endless pattern. The painting is done in yellow and green tones with glimpses of reds and blues. The lilies shine like white stars above the pond and add contrast to the overall composition. It is a fairly large painting and would look great in dining or living area.

Wave of Calm over Chaos

This abstract painting hides the idea of calmness taking over chaos. The perfect blue consumes the chaos of life, turning it into peaceful emptiness. From the other point of view, the blue wave could be creating chaos. In any case, this is the relationship of calmness and chaos. There is no one without the other; as without chaos we cannot understand the true calmness. On one hand this is a very textured painting, which adds a special feel to the chaos part. On the other, the wave of sky is smooth and represents calmness.
