Bougainvillea. By Julia Herrero-Utiasheva.

Oil on gallery wrapped canvas 20"x 20" (51 x 51 cm). Made with palette knife using impasto technique. Finished today, December 19th, 2017.

I paint bougainvilleas a lot, but I thought it was past due for a much "bigger work". They represent Passion, Love - the whole intensity of it. The abundance of Passion and Love. So, this painting is for those who dare to have such feelings. I tried to make this painting emotional. Technically, it means it should be done in a free, almost abstract style, but with enough definition to achieve liveliness and a flow of energy.

This work is dimensional because of gallery wrapped canvas. Enjoy!!!

Bougainvillea abstract is featured on Saatchi Art homepage

Wild wisteria.

I decided to make a lot very small paintings postcard size and less only because I have a lot of frames. And I am amazed myself how wonderful it looks like! Also I have a lot of fun!  So far it is a third mini painting, I am very satisfied with the result. Sometimes I don't even know what style it is. Impressionism or expressionism? Kind of close to both.

And here is framed painting:

Yesterday I finished this smal painting. I wanted for a long time to paint okame cherries. For me it is a breathtaking tree, wich probably has part of my soul. I totally love it. And I wanted to show it on paper. It was difficult to do it technically. But in the end I am satisfied and happy.
