What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

The Girls With Kaleidoscope Eyes*


*Perversely, my brain keeps correcting that to “The girl with colitis goes by.”


Olga Zelinskaya

The paintings of Georgian artist Olga Zelinskaya caught my eye when I was wandering around the internet one night looking for interesting portraits of women. I was absolutely stopped dead by her modern take on Klimt-like use of geometrics and patterns. There’s something very Art Nouveau about her representations of women, all who seem regal and powerful while retaining their femininity.

I wasn’t able to find out very much about the artist, but I’m definitely going to keep my eye out for more of her work!

  3. These are wonderful. There’s a folk art feeling to them combined with that whole fin de siecle feel of Klimt and Mucha. I love the minimalist faces combined with all of that pattern. Inspirational.

  6. Dear Donna, I accidentally found a picture in your post! Thanks for posting, thanks for your feedback, I am happy that my works you liked it! Only one inaccuracy – the girl on the horse is not mine. I’m not hiding, I’m on Facebook, can I add – and learn about my new paintings and life! Kind regards, Olga Zelinska
