I was fortunate to travel and paint in Honfleur's picturesque harbor, which was loved by many French impressionists, including Monet, Courbet, and Boudin. In this particular scene, my attention was attracted by a boat slowly moving in the water, with a couple passengers enjoying a beautiful view. This painting is on gallery wrapped linen canvas with white edges. It comes ready to hang.

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.
