Happy Winter!

Pink Shadows, 16x20, original acrylic painting by Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki


This time of the year, some of us are trying to avoid the seasonal madness, but if that's what you enjoy, I wish you the craziest holidays yet!

If you are more of a hibernating kind, like me, may your holiday season be restful and peaceful. If you like to spend an hour or two curled up with a book and a cup of tea, I can recommend some artsy novels. I enjoy books by author Susan Vreeland who weaves art into her stories in the most imaginative way. My favorites of her books so far are Girl in Hyacinth Blue and Klee Wyck. The lovers of Vermeer and Emily Carr will be especially enthralled with these tales.


If you feel like going out and you are not hitting the slopes, it's a good time to visit galleries and art exhibits. Here are a few that are close to my heart, just make sure to check the working hours to make the best use of your trip.


Buckland Southers Gallery in Dundarave Village in West Vancouver. A lovely area for a walk by the sea, a cup of coffee or a meal in the neighborhood restaurants, and for perusing of paintings in this charming gallery.





Federation Gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver. Don't miss the annual exhibit of paintings by the signature senior artists, on view until December 23, 2017. My two paintings, Rock Isle Lake and Purcell Patterns are included in the show.




Grant Berg Gallery is the art epicenter of Grande Prairie! If you are in the city, you can't possibly miss it!





Lando Gallery in Edmonton, in the midst of a vibrant community, always a great place for a visual feast!






The Studio Connexion Gallery opens its doors to eager art lovers in Nakusp, BC.




Berg Gallery, an art jewel in the Delta Hotels by Marriott Kananaskis Lodge in Kananaskis, BC.





Enjoy your own chosen gifts of winter, be it winter sports, heartwarming food, the cheer of family and friends, or the peace and quiet of your own creative space.

I will meet you here on the last day of the year to share the next step of my art journey.

Happy winter my artsy friends, may all your celebrations be joyful!

Tatjana
