New beginnings…















Here is a peek of the beginning stages of a new painting I’m working on. Although, I love floral movements and colors, I am very intrigued by the natural patterns of other plant life as well. I was particularly drawn to this strong geometrical-shaped cactus that I happened upon while strolling through Quail Gardens recently. I’m a firm believer in challenging oneself, so I made this my next project. I can’t wait to show you the final result! Stay tuned…

    I think your “challenging” is my “impossible”. Amazing work, Elena.

    Fascinating to see your process, and how you build your images. Looking forward to the final piece!
