Hi, My name is Helen Grossman. I like to paint, read books, and learning a new forms of art and techniques. I love to learn and experiment with different medias and surfaces, like clay, paper, beads, gourds,it is always something new here to learn and grow. When I am feeling burn out I am reading books or taking my brushes and paint. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born.

Now I have to figure out how to post


OK, I finally made it. What kind of programmer am I if I cannot figure out how to use this blog? Oyh ... but I finally made it. Now I have to find where to post links to sites I like that you can visit as well.

Today was a slow day. My back is hurting as a hell, so I did not do much. I uploaded a lot of pictures to my picturetrail site
www.picturetrail.com/elenahg/

Most of the pictures from our recent trips to Niagara Falls and Cape Cod. I also uploaded a few pictures of my workas well.
You are welcome to stop by and take a look

I am going to put boys to bed and want to finish some work I started a few days ago.
I created sort of wine cups using candlestick, dried flower bells and apoxie. Then I painted pieces with different shades of gold. When the cups got dried, I lined up inside of the cup with a thin layer of apoxie clay as well. I also incorporated a few faces made from commercial molds.

Pictures to come shortly.


Hugs to all!
