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. You can see some of my work including painting at my picturetrail site: www.picturetrail.com/elenahg Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Thanks again, Helen

Work in progress - Fire Girl


I painted background with acrylic first, then I applied some gel medium, then some acrylic colors, I painted face with acrylic and some pastel pencils. The previous canvas was done in the same manner.

Thank you very much for your comments, I was thinking to add some bling, thanks Shashi for confirming :) , now, I am searching my stash ( good luck to me) for some Swarowski crystals that I can apply, small but sparkle :)

Hugs to all, Helen
