Colette Wirz Nauke
New York, New York

<p>Colette Wirz Nauke gathers inspiration from her surroundings and memories and fuses them with her imagination. She has been greatly influenced by Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, especially techniques used by Monet, Cezanne and Bonnard. She tries to use similar approaches in her own work. Colette spends her summer traveling throughout the US and abroad in search of her next muse. When she&rsquo;s not painting, she enjoys visiting art museums and going to parks in search of cherry blossoms in bloom. She currently lives in New York. Fun fact: she speaks French fluently.</p>

Hi Collette I love this painting. Do you think you could paint it in a larger size - 30 wide by 40 tall? Or a size close to that to keep the proportion the same?

Hi Colette, I'm so happy that you're working on a Cherry Blossom series. I am very interested in seeing them! I loved your last Cherry Blossom painting. It was stunningly beautiful. I do not have a particular size of painting in mind. Sincerely, Ali

Colette Wirz Nauke 11/20/2008 | 2:18 AM

Dear Ali, Thanks so much for your kind words. Unfortunately, I sold the '' Cherry Blossom'' painting. However, I am working on a Cherry Blossom series. I will post the paintings as soon as I have finished, Let me know if you are interested in a specific commission of the Cherry Blossom piece and if you have a particular size of painting in mind. Thanks again for all your support. Colette

Ali 11/19/2008 | 9:24 PM
