A Giveaway from Studio Eriksdotter

"I hope to inspire, make people happy with my art and strive to make the viewer aware of and believe in the vibrancy of life. It's all about celebrating life with color and
hopefully bring joy to the room and the viewer."

Swedish-born artist, Erica Eriksdotter fell in love with art and painting at an early age. Inspired by her grandfather, she sold her first paintings at age ten. Painting has been a passion for Erika throughout her entire life, though it has come to have a different meaning for her as she has grown older. Painting “is letting go of the fear and allowing myself to trust my hands and my talent. Each painting is more than just paint on a canvas, it is a story and each layer forms that story for the viewer to enjoy.” Erica’s paintings are available through her Etsy shop. Erica would like to share her talents with readers of La Dolce Vita and is offering the winner of this giveaway their choice of one of three acrylic original paintings.

{Original Paintings by Erica}

{“Green Callas”, Acrylic on Paper}

{“Large Fringed Tulip”, Acrylic on Canvas}

{“Salmon Flower”, Acrylic on Paper}

Hello,

My absolute favorite of the 3 is the Large Fringed Tulip.

I love the slight opening of the flower; the brightness of the painting pulls you in to give you a sense of calmness, with a splash of excitement that something beautiful will emerge.

From afar it's a flower, but yet, also reminds me of the strength of a woman. To me, the texture of the painting looks soft like skin, and the curve of the petals is like that of a woman's waist. The tethered petals, are like reminders that not everyone is perfect, and has its flaws, and the opening is that of a new beginning.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I found this blog yesterday, and got stuck on it the whole day! I've become your newest fan! Thanks for sharing your ideas, quotes and interests! Have a fabulous day!

What an amazing artist! My favorite is "Petals on Gray Sky". The contrast is what I find appealing about it, yet the warm yellow petals make me feel good when I look at it.

The artist has a great ability of making the viewer FEEL HAPPY through colors and sensual petal shapes!

Whether I win or not. I appreciate being able to see it and admire it.

Thanks for sharing.
