Childhood is a carefree time. Sometimes a blue skirt is enough for a good mood. The picture is one of a series of memories of "childhood in the 70's."At work I use the highest quality pigments. They do not change color or fade. I finish the art with matte no glare varnish so it looks good under direct artificial light. The painting is signed on front and back and dated.
Prague, Czech Republic
Czech artist Nata Zaikina’s paintings are inspired by her 1970s childhood. As she walks the streets in Prague, she is inspired by anything that triggers a memory of her youth--an old movie, a song on the radio, or a conversation overheard on the street. Her paintings of children’s games emit warmth and joy. The viewer can’t help but smile and reminisce upon their own days as an exuberant child. Nata is especially interested in capturing her figures in movement, particularly while jumping. “I try to show the hidden dynamics inside the static figure,” she says. The artist works from an attic studio in Prague, where she looks out over the red tiled roofs of the city while she paints.
