Painting in Montmartre, the artists’ neighborhood of Paris, is a lot of fun.  It can be a bit of a challenge to set up an easel when the narrow streets are filled with artists drawing portraits, and people taking a stroll, having lunch, or just sipping a cappuccino in one of the many outdoor cafes. The streets are filled with colors, delicious smells, and smiles. This piece is on hardboard and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Oksana

Oksana’s paintings embody the tradition of Impressionism in the truest sense of the style. While Impressionism in its 19th Century roots was intended to change both the method and perception of painting modern life, Impressionist work in a contemporary context is arguably entirely about aesthetics. Oksana’s paintings beautifully capture serene city and garden scenes with soft painterly strokes and a delicate depiction of light. She often works en plein air, particularly when she travels in Europe, following in the footsteps of the Impressionist masters. When she’s not travelling or painting outdoors, Oksana can be found admiring her tranquil view of the Pacific Ocean from her San Francisco home and studio.
