ELENI SMOLEN
This is where I began as a painter

I painted these after we moved to Beacon. I had a studio in what was then affectionately known as "Bulldog Studios" which was the old high school. I was there for two years and accomplished alot of work during that time because of an almost daily practice. Here is a small selection.

In late 2015 I embarked on a new series - I'm riffing on the same pose of a horse, seemingly in mid-gallop, approaching the viewer. Most of the works are oil on birch panels, 16 x 16 x 2 inches.

Riffing on an old photograh of myself taken by my mother in Étretat, France in 1959. (I was 6 years old in the photograph). On the back of the photograph she had written, "Étretat, a wonderful beach."
