Last year my friend was going through some tough times so we decided to pick up some plastic fruit and flowers and set them for still life paintings. On the way home, I must have dropped one of the pears, I had three to start with. So for that reason, there is only 2 pears in this painting. And once I had painted the pears I asked her "what color for the backround?" she said "blue of course". I was wondering for a bit, it wasnt such a "of course" for me, but then I thought, she must really know my paintings backround must be blue. So I finished it and showed it. Whe then asked "what's with the blue?" I said "you told me to paint it blue!" all this time whe was talking about her own painting!! So she painted a bluebackround painting with orange flowers and I with my pears.

At one point I was painting a lot of little paintings, about 15-20cm x 17-25cm. So quite small. And They were all about still life and flowers. I wanted to have a wall of different color paintings all little still life. I got to about 20 pieces of them, but then people started to buy them. I never got to a point of having a artshow just with little paintings. I'm still hoping to accomplish that one is a lot of work tho. 

This one is one of the little still lifes that I painted  in 2010. We went to a city called Yinge about 40 min drive away from Taipei city. Its famous for pottery making. You can buy any kind of pottery or make it yourself. If you get a chance, go visit! I must have bought about 20 pieces, all pretty models for my still life paintings. Little cups, teapots, vases and so on. You'll see them all through my work.

With this painting I wanted to bring out the color in the vases and the wall. It's amazing, objects dont have to be  anything special, the backround can be.

A little about me

 Artist painter Maria Melenchuk I was born in Finland, in the city of Lappeenranta - city full of lakes and forrests. Growing up I spent most of my time going between home and seeing uncles and auntie, grandmother and great auntie. This is how I learned to drink coffee at a very early age - I really miss the way my great auntie made a cup of "kohvi"!!.Read more About me
