Life Is a Flower, Love Is the Honey

With February finally here, Spring is around the corner! Valentine’s Day is coming to sweetly mark a new season. At Prairiebrooke, our art consultants are gearing up for the season of love by carefully selecting and featuring original works of art that speak to the beauty, passion, and emotion that this season brings. Here are some of the works of art on display at our gallery, patiently waiting to meet their new companion.

An artist who works and lives in Mississauga, Ontario, Julia Klimova paints richly vibrant works on canvas. We currently have three works by Klimova that feature floral bouquets, each done in a contemporary impressionist style. Night Garden captures a dreamlike vision of bright roses in a dark outdoor garden in the summer. Broad and loose strokes of paint capture the foliage of the garden while tighter, finer strokes mark the delicate curves of each rose petal.

Klimova’s In Blue China (right) harkens back to the works of early impressionists in France, notably bringing to mind the work of Claude Monet. Like Monet’s Vase of Peonies (left), Klimova’s In Blue China presents a colorful composition of roses and peonies but with a looser and more abstracted representation of petals and leaves.

Prairirebrooke has two other works by Klimova, Premonition of Winter and Long Summer:

Julia Klimova,  Premonition of Winter , 36x48”, oil on canvas
