I had a chance to visit Denmark, Netherland and France in August.
I was starting in Copenhagen, went to see the beautiful castles and art Museums.
My favorite was the Louisiana Modern Art.
Louisiana Modern Art Museum is one of the best. Its located 40 km north of Copenhagen, and it was absolutely worth to visit. Collections, installations, special exhibitions, beautiful park with sculptures around and view over sea is just unbelievable!
In Copenhagen I visited a lot of beautiful castles, museums and of course one of my favorite writer Hans Christian Andersen fairy story places.
My next stop was Amsterdam.
Well, my favorite art museums were just around the corner, Reykjavik art museum, Van Gogh Art museum, Steljick Modern Art and Moco contemporary museum. I was very busy to check all of them.
But the very enjoyable place was the Rembrandt house and Artist Studio. I learned a lot about his colors, paints and workshop.
Guess, where I was lost by tour bus – it was Delft, and may be it was my destination place. I had incredible time at the Vermeer Art Centre. My dream came true.
How I can go to Europe and not visiting Paris? Yes, I did it ofcourse, speed train from Amsterdam to Paris took only 3h 20min, it was fast.
In Paris I was incredibly busy to check my bucket list, so much to see even it was my third time to visit my favorite city in the world. Opera Garnier, Montmartre and Montmartre museum, Picasso museum, Jardin de Luxembourg, Atelier de Lumières – Van Gogh light show, Louis Vuitton foundation, Eiffel Tower, Petit Palace and I just walked around a lot.
Well, I managed to shot my favorite rooftops from unusual places and one of them was riding on the Roue de Paris, ferris wheel.
What is the incredible time I had in August in Europe!

We had a great reception night at the John B. Aird Gallery in Toronto on March 28, 2019 . The gallery was packed with guests and artists, we had a testy food and more important so many amazing original art.

I’m so delighted to see my painting on the poster for the Ontario Society Juried Exhibition and it was represent this exhibition on the big poster on the wall.
Art Toronto is the Canada largest art fair for the modern and contemporary art.
I’m visiting this show every year to see important artwork from leading Canadian and international galleries.
What is the big surprise at the Art Toronto International Fair this year for myself.
I found two of my paintings are digitally showing at the Samsung Booth. This is the project by SaatchiArt with Samsung “The Frame”.
My three paintings where choosing by Saatchi Art curators among others artists to participate in the Samsung project “The Frame”. This is a very new innovation technology, when people can renting the images and displaying them on the screen in their homes and offices.
I was very happy to see my paintings in this important international art fair.

Plain Air painting at the Killarney Mountain Lodge.
At the end of September I went to paint with group of artists to Killarney national park. This is a tradition trip from the Ontario Society of Artists. The weather was cold and windy, but I did three paintings in that beautiful location. We stayed at the Killarney Mountain Lodge, we had the delicious food and more important we had a good group of artists to paint together.
I had incredible good time in London this summer. For one week I visited a lot of historical sites and museums.
One of my favorite museum in London is National Gallery. It has extensive collection of fine art from all centuries. I was very excited to see my favorite masterpieces by Velaskes, Titian and of course Van Gogh and much, much more.
It has a free entrance and a lot of people can see and learn about fine art any time, I wish to have this idea in Canada.
It nice to see the art classes among beautiful art.
Another my very favorite art museum is Tate Modern.
I spend a lot of hours to check the contemporary and modern art.
What is unbelievable good view from the Tate Modern! It’s also has a free entrance, as a lot of museums in London, love it.
I like to see also the St. Paul Cathedral, it’s so beautiful inside and organ music gives the special feeling, unfortunately they not aloud to take photo inside the buildings.
The Royal Observatory, The Tower, Cruise on the Thames river, Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studios Tour, the National Air Force show and just walking on the streets gave me and my granddaughter unbelievable time together to explore one of the beautiful city in the world.
Next step to me just start to paint more cityscapes about London.
Elizabeth Elkin is a renowned professional artist with an international reputation. Over the span of thirty years, she utilizes her advanced painting skills to create superior quality oil paintings. The true innovation of her work lies in the power of her vibrant colors, her museum quality works of expressionist art and her unique style of cubism in which the painting only reveals its true complexity after careful viewing over time.
