Night Fishing, Natasa Vretenar


I have been working on this bear for a while, and I used the polymer clay stars again for this painting. I am enjoying trying new media in my paintings. This is a painting of a spirit bear fishing at night.

Beargrass, by Natasa Vreteanr


Alberta is the first place where I saw the beargrass. It is really nice to see. They grow in in meadows in the mountains.

Taos Shopping, Natasa Vretenar


Taos is a wonderful place to visit. I love all the little shops with interesting, hand made goods, and filled with art.

My favourite month begins with a snow storm! Alberta's weather is unpredictable and we always enjoy a few good sunny days like yesterday! So glad we spent most of the day outside - even got a little sunburn on my face yesterday.
Today is a completely different story - I look out the window and it is almost a whiteout out there. However, it is a great day to watch movies, read and paint. We are enjoying our Spring break.

Fresh Flowers by Natasa Vretenar


This is another painting for the Let's paint New Mexico challenge. We are planning a show in December! I am excited about it :)

In every painting I try and build interesting textures. The window ledge this vase is on has some crackle paste on it to give it an aged paint look. I like working with the crackle paste/medium because you never know how it will turn out. The thinner the layer of the medium is, the smaller the cracks are when the paste dries. I used Golden medium for this painting.

Rusty, Natasa Vretenar


New Mexican landscape is full of rusty old trucks and cars. There are so many colours in the rusty surface, as well as textures in the peeling paint.
