Boxwood Garden in Pastel

I’m very pleased with how this pastel painting turned out.  It is of the boxwood garden at the Missouri Botanical Garden.  I really like the contrast of the vertical brickwork in the foreground left and the fountains on the lower right, with the horizontals of the garden behind it. 39 more words

Buddha, Seashell and Fruit

Here is a still life I painted with an artist friend at her place.  It is an interesting juxtaposition of a large conch shell, a jade buddha statue, and some pears and apples.   62 more words

Autumn in St. Louis

I’m a bit out of order here.  I had painted this en plein air last autumn with my painting buddy Jane Flanders.  This is in Carondelet Park, by the corner of Holly Hills and Leona.   62 more words

Dreaming of Warmer Days

I was born and raised in the tropics (Venezuela).  Now, I’m in Missouri, USA.  I really miss the tropical weather in winter!  So, I decided to go to the Missouri Botanical Garden Temperate House, and paint this romantic little scene of vines trailing along a Mediterranean stucco wall.   15 more words

Camille Lewinski - Q1 Art Competition - Artist Portfolio Magazine

Ever since I was a child I have been obsessed with wildlife. I grew to really appreciate their beauty and the environment around them through trips to national parks such as Yellowstone as well as conservation areas where I could observe them in a natural state. 249 more words
