This oil painting continues my latest collection exploring my perception of nature called: Garden Stories.
I find inspiration in everything life throws at me, good and bad. We had been spending more and more time in the north of Scotland in the past years, finding piece and ourselves. I feel closer to nature with age, (even though I grow up in the forest in my native Poland) the sounds and the smells are more vivid now. 

I am still a very visual person, a painter as much as a designer and my interests spread widely from great painters like Balthus and Paula Rego to architecture of art nouveau to rich and geometrical patterns of art deco. I try to incorporate all of those passions in my work. Modern art is about freedom and confidence and fine art is about skill – those are essential for me and as long as present in my art- I will be satisfied as artist. 

My latest work is strongly inspired by nature, floral and botanical and expresses soft lines (art nouveau-esque) that are then clashed with art deco-esque geometrical and designed lines. Some of those painting are still build on a story (like the one about my mum’s garden) others are built on the feeling alone.

Karolina Franceschini was born in Poland, where she studied art and design in one of the main Fine Art Academies.Now she is based in Glasgow, Scotland. "My painting is purely intuitive, flows out of me naturally and almost effortlessly. Creative process is based on two stages. First one, when picture takes control, it becomes, leads me. Second stage, when I have to take control, organize and decide what elements of the image are the most important .I gently try to suggest, what should come through as the strongest part of the painting. I am using the strength of the composition and uncompromising colours to create an impact. Ironically, my painting is the opposite of my nature. I like peace and tranquillity I look at some of my paintings often surprised. Sometimes I don’t know where they came from. Just like I cannot predict what will be the subject of my next work, what will trigger my imagination? It can be a group of people, a scene from the movie, old photo, or street performance. My eyes are scanning the reality up to a point when my mind reacts . Elements of what I see start to blend and mix and then, when I hit the canvas the journey begins. I allude to reality, to a lesser or greater extent, therefore my work bounces between figurative and abstract painting. I will try to explain my creative process using one of my older paintings, 'I will follow you', as an example. I came across a picture of a group of street dancers among whom was a very young boy, a child. The boy was enchanted by the moves of dancers; he was admiring them with wide open eyes .This little boy reminded me of one of Jacek Malczewski work- my favourite painter of all time At the beginning of the 19th century, he painted the scene in which the little shepherd boy is captivated by an angel. There was no visual similarity between Malczewski’s painting and the scene that I saw. It was the atmosphere, innocence and child fascination that touched me. Instantly, my mind has begun to select, compose, adding some elements and removing others. The initial idea was born within seconds, but I wasn’t ready to start painting yet. It took weeks, before I felt , I knew what I wanted to do with it.. However, the end result always has an element of surprise."
