I have online Holiday Gifts Event in my True Art Gallery!
This is the first time when I have sale online on my page for the Miniature Paintings.
Usually I showing them and selling at the outdoor art shows, it help me to cover show expenses, if I don’t have good sale for the bigger works.
Artist have to pay a lot of money, for entries fee, for the booth place and promotion.
It’s not easy to sell the fine art, it’s a very challenging job and the little one, not very expensive Original Painting sometimes helps.
This time I decided to do something different.
I have promotion coupon as well on my page: GIFT10 just for this little paintings- 10% of price.
I would like to share with you my recent Art trip to Europe.
I visited 6 countries – Czech Republic, Italy, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Austria and Hungary. I was traveling by planes, boat, train, buses, car, trams, subways during my art trip and visited 12 cities: Prague, Milan, Venice, Turin, Vaduz, Zurich, Schaffhausen, Bern, Montreux, Vienna, Salzburg and Budapest.
I was so busy all the time for using my camera and I did thouthands plus photos! I met a lot of people around the world, learned a lot about history, music, cities, countries, architecture and what is more important for me, about Fine Art.
I went to 30 plus places, including the best art museums in the world with amazing Art Collection. I had chance to see a very inspiring exhibition one of my favorite contemporary artist Gerhard Richter in the Prague Art Museum.
I climbed on the top of the 6 towers to shot the rooftops in the different countries and cities: Prague, Venice, Milan, Vienna and Schaffhausen, went on the rooftops of the famous Milan cathedral, which was painted centuries ago by french impressionist artist Claude Monet.
Well I even went to the Rhine falls to see the bigger falls in Europe, it’s a very powerful, but our Niagara Falls of course is much bigger.
One of the highlight of my trip was to seeing the fresco Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci in Milan, Italy, this is an incredible masterpiece from renaissance era.
I really like the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, with so beautiful collection of the old masters, the building itself is very impressive inside and outside. Albertina Museum and Leopold Museum, has a very impressive collection as well, I was very happy to see oil paintings by Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt.
How about the food? In Europe I found it’s a very delicious, especially the famous Viennese chocolate cake from the famous pastry store Demel. I was enjoyed the music concert in Vienna, music by Mozart and Bach always give me the big inspiration to paint my paintings.
On the weekend of 14-16 July, I was participating in the biggest Outdoor Art Show in Toronto -TOAE.
It holds every year in the downtown Toronto, next to the City Hall at Nathan Phillips Square.
It was three days show, for the first day I set up the tent and each day I have to bring the paintings in the morning and when the show end, every single day to take it off and bring back home. In the last day I have to take my tent as well.
I was completely exhausted, thanks to my husband who help me with all this stuff.
We had a big crowd, a lot of diferent art and craft, I think more than 350 artists participated this year.
I’m posting just a few photos from the show, as I was very busy talking to people and didn’t have enough time to go around.

I’m very proud my granddaughter participated in this project, as well as myself.
A lot of talented people were involved in this music video, musicians, composer, dancers, children, and team who worked very hard., but most important with the vision of Senthil Thirugnana who made it alive and real.
My painting “Canadian Expressions”, Collage, 30″x 30″ on the display at Canadian Landmarks II, in honor of 150th Anniversary of Confederation. The exhibition will be held from May 23 – June 10, at Milton Centre of the Arts, Colour and Form Society members show.
The work “Canadian Expressions” not only about the mosaic of colors, it’s also representing many cultures of Canadian, who comes from all around the world and find the home in Canada ( including myself).
I’m so delighted that my two paintings won two awards in the different categories in International “CityScapes” Art Competition 2D and 3D artists (including photography) in Light Space &Time Online Art Gallery.

This is are the certificates from the Juried International Competition:
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.
