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.
Haze over Fields was inspired by artist’s childhood memories of long car trips and endless fields seen through the window. The flow of the painting moves in two different directions. One is moving away from the viewer, leading the eyes to the center of the painting. Another one moves toward the viewer through the fields and creates a clash of lines right in the middle. The chaotic sky can be seen as a product of this clash in the fields. There is a notion of calm and chaos in this piece, but the chaos is in the sky this time. The dramatic clouds and stormy, yet gentle, colors are the proof. This original acrylic painting is 10” by 8” in size and quite smooth with very little texture. All strokes are flat, and the drama is represented by colors. Haze over Fields is an attempt to show the drama of what most people would consider plain and boring.
