Flower Power!

Olena Zvyagintseva's oil on canvas paired with a tufted bench upholstered in a powerful red velvet caught my eye last night at Tew Gallery.  Talk about flower power!

I love her use of a split-complementary color scheme -- red-orange, green and blue hues painted onto the canvas in bold blocks of color.  Details etched into the paint with the end of a brush contrast with her use of white.

Corky Davis with the gallery told me that Olena gets her inspiration from flowers in her garden and from traditional tapestry fabric from Ukraine.

Consider stopping by the gallery tonight, February 19 for the opening or check it out at
