How are you doing?
Me, I’m feeling generous and so I’ve cooked up my first competition for you.
I’ve recently painted a picture of Giant Pandas and thought a print of this piece (worth £30) would be a lovely candidate for a give away – to keep or to gift (ahem, Mother’s Day is around the corner here in the UK).
To WIN a print of the ‘Pandas’, (30 x 30 cm) there are two things I’d like to ask from you:
Competition ends on 08.03.2023 and winners will be notified on 09.03.2023.
If you don’t want to leave things to chance and have your gift for any occasion ready, the Pandas as well as many other artworks are available in my shop.
Yellow on my mind.
Last week I went through my paintings in order to chose a collection for my upcoming events. In the wonderful mess of colours and subjects spread out all over the house the yellow-dominant paintings stood out the most.
I’ve realised I reach for a vibrant lemony yellow almost exclusively in winter. This year, back in a cold and dull February, everything in our garden was drained of colour. Except for an Acai (Mimosa) tree – a specimen with intensely saturated yellow blossoms. An instant mood-lift that inspired the painting in the middle.
Does yellow do anything for you?
A selection of my works will be travelling across the three Richmond Borough Summer fairs.
The Affordable Art tent will be showing a vast selection of artworks from the local artist and the pieces are a steal, each for under £100.
The first event is on Richmond Green, Saturday 13 May 2023.
If you are planning on coming, drop me a line.
Recently a client of mine commissioned me to paint The Shot Tower in Crane Nature reserve, Whitton. The place evokes fond memories and now that she’s moved away from the area she will have a piece of art to bring some of them back.
If you had to chose, which one would you go for?
Word from the client:
…I’m so happy with the painting and feel as though Zuzana has captured the beauty and mystery of the Shot Tower and how it stands confidently among the lushness of Crane Park. A perfect way to mark my 40th birthday that will be cherished and enjoyed for years to come. Thank you Zuzana!”

Curious about how commissions work? Find out from my response to an enquiry to paint a Golfer figure.
Approach: In my sports paintings, I focus on the energy and movement of the characters. Though I can work from a photo, a video footage works better for this particular subject…I can study the movement and choose an interesting moment and composition. Good light is important and a footage from sunny or a light day is a great help.
Lucky five – Andisheh, Rene, Simon, Patricia and Harper have been selected to receive free prints of these monochromes. Congrats and enjoy!
