Elena Kari Captures the Beauty & Boldness of Flowers
My name is Elena Kari. A few years ago I received a small easel, set of acrylic paints and brushes as a Christmas gift. I was so excited to start painting. The process of creating florals on canvas seems like a strange miracle that I need to repeat again and again...I hope this blissful delirium will never be over — I give it a try and want to see what happens…
I am working day-time in the office and painting mostly at night or on weekends. Unfortunately, I never had any formal training in painting, but I follow the steps of many other self –taught artists and learn from them. I just started a journey and want to see where it would take me.
Writing about art is hard, but writing about art that you made can be much harder.
I like flowers — they delight me. There is something truly enchanted about flowers in sunlight — the way light brightens them with energy and liveliness. I enlarge images of flowers to give them a louder voice and more intense color. The all-brief nature of flowers makes the moment of blooming an occasion that deserves to be savored — trying to remain aware of these feelings and painting with mindfulness of my experience of that moment. As a painter, I enjoy creating my own gardens on canvas with color and hope that my inspiration reached the audience.
