A while ago I posted this water color painting not knowing who the artist was - but thankfully one of the readers did!!! It is truly lovely - isn't it!!
Well, now that I know the artist is Fatima Tomaeva-Gabellini, I was able to locate more of her work and a bit about her.
Osetinian artist Fatima Tomaeva-Gabellini was born on November 5, 1967 in the city of Vladikavkaz, Russia.
From 1986 to 1991 graduated from the Art School of Vladikavkaz, later she studied art in Italy.
A vigorous and colourful brush stroke, which captures the delicacy as well as the balanced design of the anatomy of the body.
The artist positioning is to execute any mobile or static subject, which seems to fly freely in the space allotted in the canvas so as to evade impressive realism.
