Spring is officially here and what better way to celebrate than with the adoration of nature’s most beautiful buds. This painting by Lyuba Titovets is a joy to behold, a joy to analyze, a joyful puzzle! Lilies red, white, and tiger brim from a blue delft vase on a table complete with various peeled and whole fruit. Serving as an elegant backdrop, a gorgeous green silk cloth brought back from China by Lyuba’s grandmother adds a sentimental touch to the work.

 

Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, Lyuba started private painting lessons when she was five years old. She attended the State University in St. Petersburg before moving to the United States with husband, Aleksander Titovets, also a renowned painter. Today, Lyuba primarily focuses on still-lifes, for which she carefully selects in-season flowers and sets up arrangements to create maximum impact.

 

While her subject matter emanates from life, Lyuba’s paintings are whimsical, surreal renderings of bravura that will light up any room. “Joyful Puzzle” is an impressionistic work with the colors of a fauvist—her brushstrokes are loose, but her colors are powerful expressions of exuberance. Even the bees are in awe of her painted beauties- we had one land on “Joyful Puzzle” just a few weeks ago!
