Two Pairs of Pears

This still life painting depicts four juicy pears. The yellow, red, and green color palette of this bright piece would warm up any space. The texture of the artwork is fairly smooth and created mainly by the canvas. The spherical shape of the pears is accented by the circular highlights of white and yellow on each fruit. This is the second and a smaller painting of the pear series. This artwork would fit excellently in a dining room, but you better prepare some real pears as your guests will want to eat them.

Daisies and Blue Glass

Daisies and Blue Glass is a bright still life painting. There are some objects that contain such mystery, such beauty that they keep inspiring the artist over and over. This tiny blue glass bottle is one of Oksana’s favorite objects. It is of an unusual shape and color with just a tad if translucency. It is like a veil over a beautiful body, except that one has to fill in that body. The five daisies act as the body in this acrylic painting. They are beautiful sunny flowers that pop out, yet tie the colors together. The painting is done in three main colors. They are shades of yellow, blue, and white. It is a quite bright, yet fairly calm painting that would well suit a dining or living room.

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.
