climate change

Mixed media on canvas
18" x 24"
$575

Super excited to post my first abstract mixed media painting. When i made this painting i did not have a title in my mind, but as it was completed and hanging on my easel i heard the words climate change on TV and in that moment i realized that the title of this painting should be "Climate Change".
The warm reds, evaporating cool blues, and a small amt. of "vegetation" greens all hint to the effects of climate change.

Here is a small crop i am going to use in my Red Bubble portfolio https://www.redbubble.com/people/lathia?ref=account-nav-dropdown&asc=u.

City Trees
Acrylic on Board
18" x 24"
$500

This painting is inspired by the landscape in my neighborhood. Always liked painting trees, these are inspired by a trip to the city. Tall trees against tall buildings has a zen feeling amidst the commotion of city life.Sometimes in the midst of doing work you look outside your window and get a glimpse of these tall, dark trees and you cannot ignore their grace and beauty. That is the feeling i tried to capture!!
Light Snow II

Light Snow I
Acrylic on watercolor paper
!2" x 16" each
$200 each, ($350 for both) unframed

"Light snow" in early spring, is a very common New England phenomenon.
The trees are bare and the days are dull and gloomy, perfect for staying indoors and painting. These paintings are inspired by the view outside from my window.


Hydrangeas
Large alcohol ink on yupo
20" x 26"

 The vivid shades of blue alcohol ink colors make the hydrangeas come alive in this painting, colors like baja blue, indigo, and sailboat blue. These big, blue, showy flowers against the muted peach/pink background make a soft, pleasing composition.
sunflowers

20" x 26"

Who doesn't smile when they see a sunflower?
The vivid alcohol ink colors make them come alive. The rich, bold color flows across the smooth, synthetic surface of  yupo paper to create lovely abstract patterns and translucent colors.





red roses in blue vase
Large alcohol ink and acrylic on yupo
20" x 26"

Nothing says “I love you” like red roses. The bold reds and pinks in this painting symbolizes love, beauty, courage, respect, and romantic love.
Alcohol inks allow me to find the most vivid reds and deep pinks for this occasion.


Summer Arrangement

Beautiful blooms vividly captured in an abstract, impressionistic style. This imaginary floral composition captures the magnificent colors of nature using alcohol inks. The bold colors and imagery convey joy, beauty and graceful forms of nature.

Here is a quick study done on the day of the trip:


First place for my painting, "Drifting Boats" at the AIGMV last night. Here are the Judge's comments, "This impressionist painting has a balanced arrangement of value shapes.
That make for an interesting rhythmic design. Grey and blue cool colors together with the reflections in the still water create a quiet solitude."
The painting is available for sale.The Judge was Mary Rose O Connell.
The show was at the Nevin's Library in Methuen.
76 beautiful paintings and photographs were in the show.

Chelmsford Art Society Presents - Priti Lathia
Demonstrating - Alcohol Ink Painting
Wed.,November 29, 2017 7:00 PM
Chelmsford Center for the Arts
1A North Road, Chelmsford, MA

Free - Everyone Welcome!
The Chelmsford Art Society will meet for a demonstration by Priti Lathia on Alcohol Ink Painting on Wednesday, November, 29, 2017 at 7 PM at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts,1A North Road,
Chelmsford, MA . The meeting is free and open to the public.
As a professional artist and teacher, Lathia likes to try new techniques and materials. With any media she uses, her work has a vibrant, colorful and joyous feeling. The artist loves to paint nature as well as be inspired by the places she has visited or still life subjects that have inspired her.
Lathia took some art lessons as a youngster but never thought of it as a career. Her turning point was taking some art classes at Middlesex Community College. Her teacher asked her to teach a class after looking at a couple of her assignments. Since then, she could see a future in art and gained confidence that she was an original and real artist.
After seeing Priti’s work in some local art show, for the last several years, many parents brought their children to her for art lessons. She teaches art to a large number of children three days a week at St. Mark’s Church in Westford - September to June. Also, she teaches art at her home twice every week and offers private lessons.

Another vibrant alcohol painting inspired by flowers. What's more romantic than vibrant red roses? Alcohol as a medium lends itself to vibrant results, and the beautiful dots/cells are an added bonus.
