Today was an amazing day at Long Wood Gardens. Takes us about 145 minutes to get there. But it is totally worth it.I have not blogged in a while. Its been a long time. Today I just feel like I want to share the beautiful pictures of the orchids I took today. Please feel free to write your comments :)
Art Flowers and Music
Today I had a wonderful time and met very nice people at the Art Reception at Gallery 33 at Comisky's Green House in Hightstown.
What a wonderful place with beautiful flowers and artwork from local artisans.
If you leave in NJ and have never been there you should definitely check it out.
There are lots of interesting things for everyone.
You can find beautiful flowers, fountains, garden decor, hand painted silk scarfs, pottery, honey coffee and lots more.
A big thank you to Juanita Yoder for organizing this beautiful art show!
I was very happy to meet Daniel Trent . I just loved his guitar. A big thank you to Daniel for the beautiful music he was playing while guests were enjoying the show.
I met these two beautiful artists and I hope to see them and their art in the future,
I even bought a beautiful glass vase by Wheatonarts! Very excited about my purchase!
Wonderful Orchids that are for sale
Lately I have been obsessed with yarn. I have discovered Noro Yarn in our local store in Princeton Pins and Needles about a year ago and since then I have been knitting a lot.
Today I wore my first dress that I just finished. I have never thought that I would ever be able to knit myself a dress.
It felt so nice and soft and warm and I got so many compliments on my dress.
I really love hand made items. And since I was a child my mother always made clothes for me and I developed love for hand made clothes and toys from my early childhood..
When I go shopping for clothes I want to find something special and I often come home with nothing.
Then I found out about this wonderful community of people on ravelry where there are so many talented artists. I fell in love with Steven West patterns but I was afraid to start a big project since I did not know how to read the patterns, so I taught myself how to read the pattern. Nowadays with youtube it is so easy.
Let me share with you with what I have made.
This is a dress made by my mother Tatiana Oles She is a wonderful artist and has been inspiring me all the time.
You are welcome to leave comments! I love reading them
I wanted to say a few words about our trip with my mother to Lambertville.
On a beautiful Saturday afternoon we came to this little town to the Art Opening reception that was held in a beautiful art Gallery on 8 Church Street called River Queen Artisans.
The owners of the gallery Jane and her husband Edward did a great job putting the show together. There are many wonderful pieces of work from various local artists.
I recommend to stop by and check it out if you are in the area. I am sure you will find something you might like.
Here are few pictures from the reception
Loved this piece
Delicious cupcakes with the image of Rachel Bliss painting.

As every mother I am very happy to be around my children. My older daughter is very independent and enjoys her own space . My son is with me almost all the time. I am so much in love with him.
Everyday he comes up with new ideas.
My morning starts with a big smile from Max and a big kiss. He says Mommy I love you! I love you so much! Let me check what time it is. Its 7 45 time to wake up , we have lots of things to do.
The highlight of our day is the time when we paint.
Painting is his favorite activities, toys don't interest him so much.
Letters and Numbers, counting and reading 3 letter words.
My baby is going to be 3 next month and I am looking at the baby pictures and think to myself where did the time go?
So today I am going to share some more of our artistic activities.
It's winter. That means it's cold. I am not loving cold weather much that is why I tend to spend most of the time in my warm and cosy studio.
When you have little children its hard as they have to be constantly entertained.
Here is an idea how can keep them busy and happy.
I am so grateful to my little son that loves Art as much as I do.
That is what we do to make sure we are not bored.
Art in making
I love to see other artists painting. It is very inspiring and you can learn a lot.
Here I would like to share the works of Gregory Tsurkan.
His works will speak for themselves
Please visit his website to see more of the artwork

I would like to share with you that I had my art opening reception at Small World Coffee Caffe in Princeton.
I want to thank all my friends that came and were there for me and showed their support and appreciation.
There are 76 pieces on display. New art pieces that I have been working in the last 3 years. The paintings will be shown all month of May until June 9th.
Here are some of the pictures from the Reception.
If you are in Princeton and could not come to the reception please stop by at Small World and check them out.
Cold winter months are over. Spring is here. I was really busy and completely forgot about my blog.
Today I thought I would write a little update about what I have been up to.
February was a very busy and good month.
I had two art shows and was able to show and sell my new artwork.
I was participating in a fund raising event for Big Brothers Big Sisters with Jacqui Alexander, we had a one day art show in Lambertville NJ.
Another very nice event was Art Jam organized by Home Front, 50% of the sales would go to Home Front.
It was a beautifully organized Pop Up Art Gallery in the heart of Princeton. I was very honored to be a part of this wonderful event.
