I was drawn to the light and airy atmosphere of this morning scene in Normandy.  The light greenish color of the water and the faded purples and blues of the buildings, melting in the morning haze, contrasted beautifully with the bright café umbrellas.  People were starting to gather to enjoy their breakfast while looking out at the boats, which were slowly swaying in the harbor.  This painting is on a gallery wrapped 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.
