‘Perfect Stranger’, 2022
‘Perfect Stranger’ is an oil and acrylic painting on gallery canvas. "I’ve been exploring the balance between the abstract and the real;" says Natasha. "It’s surprising how much detail your brain can fill in with just a few vague shapes." Most vivid colors dance on canvas, inviting one to explore the face with a continuous motion. The subject's realistically-depicted eye is staring at the viewer with silent inquisition.

"Most colorful and vidid painting portrait of Frida Kahlo, the way I see her" says Natasha. The portrait, with its pops of every color of the rainbow is set against a deep forest green background.

Painted in the color blocking technique Natasha has developed over the years.

‘The Past Inside The Present’, 2022
Natasha's first work of 2022, this painting is an abstract portrait of a woman. Her right eye is painted with realistic attention, but the rest of the work is done with brilliant vivid blocks of saturated color. The artist is taking her bold color approach further with bigger, decisive brush strokes. One is almost overwhelmed with the brightness of paint choices; the radioactive teal in her left eye, the neon orange of her right cheekbone... Your eye keeps traveling around the face, following the angles and curves created by the swing of the artist's arm. The colors overall are bright and happy, almost child-like, yet the woman's eye looks at the viewer with wistful melancholy. Done at the peak of Covid-19 pandemic in early January 2022 Northern California.

‘Lola’, 2020
Painted in November of 2020. “The year 2020 has made me paint a lot faster, with more quick decisive brushstrokes. 2020 — the year of global pandemic — showed us that life is precious, and no time should be wasted”, says Natasha. ‘Lola’ is about raw energy; it is about movement, color, texture and emotion. The woman in the painting is confident, strong, determined, urban. Bright blocks of color, accompanied by graffiti-like paint drips bring this painting to life, while highlights of bright blue add electric energy to the overall work. This work was inspired by people and art seen around the city of San Jose, California, as well as the entire San Francisco Bay Area.

‘Her Smile’, 2020
Expressive portrait of a black woman with a subtle Mona Lisa-like smile. She is beautiful. She is strong. She is inspiring. Her eyes suggest quiet contemplation but there is also determination. Her face is made up of bright colorful paint brush strokes of all the different colors. She is a one-of-a-kind individual and she knows no limitations. Due to the shortage of art materials during the stay-at-home isolation of 2020, the portrait was created on an artisan one of a kind hand-made canvas.

‘Blue Portrait’, 2022
This portrait was painted from a found vintage photograph — it's of a bygone era of romanticism, literature, arts, and inspiration. Painted in a limited monochromatic blue palette as a nod to the black and white photography. The portrait is mysterious as one can't tell if it's of a woman or a man. Gentle contemplation is seen in the eyes.
