Original oil painting by Karolina Franceschini.
This oil painting continues my latest collection exploring my perception of nature called: Garden Stories.
I find inspiration in everything life throws at me, good and bad. We had been spending more and more time in the north of Scotland in the past years, finding piece and ourselves. I feel closer to nature with age, (even though I grow up in the forest in my native Poland) the sounds and the smells are more vivid now.
I am still a very visual person, a painter as much as a designer and my interests spread widely from great painters like Balthus and Paula Rego to architecture of art nouveau to rich and geometrical patterns of art deco. I try to incorporate all of those passions in my work. Modern art is about freedom and confidence and fine art is about skill – those are essential for me and as long as present in my art- I will be satisfied as artist.

"My painting is purely intuitive, flows out of me naturally and almost effortlessly.
Creative process is based on two stages. First one, when picture takes control, it becomes, leads me. Second stage, when I have to take control, organize and decide what elements of the image are the most important .I gently try to suggest, what should come through as the strongest part of the painting. I am using the strength of the composition and uncompromising colours to create an impact. Ironically, my painting is the opposite of my nature. I like peace and tranquillity.
