We are now in “full on summer”. The flowers are blooming their head off, my tree frogs are loud as traffic and the lightening bugs have started to twinkle in the early evening.  What could be better?  Maybe a painting by the dynamic duo, Signe and Genna Grushovenko!?

The talented couple paints together.  Genna begins their process by applying rich layers of pattern and tone to gessoed masonite or linen supports. Signe then selects an inspiration image from their extensive collection of vintage found photos, draws with oil pastel atop the abstract underlayer using the photo for reference, and completes the image with blocky ‘panes’ of oil color.

Candidly, my husband and I struggle to agree on where to go to dinner.  I find this collaboration truly remarkable.
