This work is inspired by a the instant moment you feel the joy and emotion of a kiss. The soft petals of the cherry blossoms remind me of a delicate mouth. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Colette

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'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.
