Ellen Kaiden Painter of Metaphors
Artful Mind  “ARTZINE” 5/23

This year was the year to go all in as an artist, an invest in myself. It is difficult to put yourself out there but I have reaped the benefits.

It’s been a productive winter and hopefully it will be a successful summer. I am proud to announce that I was awarded BEST water media artist nationally for 2023 by ADC, Art Design Consultants, a Juried show “Art Comes Alive”.

My two month show at Woodfield Fine Art in St Petersburg FL, opened a whole new world for me by putting me face to face with other artist and potential clients that knew nothing about me. I had good sales and was well received by a vibrant and young arts community and am happy to say a have a FL gallery home.

In the Berkshires I am represented by the Wit Gallery in Lenox, and will participate in the June Art Walk June 10th and 11th.

My paintings are not just pretty flowers they tell stories about the world, politics and women.

Last Year I changed the way I approached my paintings. I started to work in series and to better communicate the Metaphorical nature of my work. To date, my series include, “Lady Paints the Blues”, the war in the Ukraine, Women’s Voices, The secret life of Sun.

Flowers and just plain Happiness. This has proved to be successful for me.

My husband and I will be traveling to Asia this spring and I anticipate being inspired by this experience, perhaps a Zen series will follow. I welcome visitors to my studio in Lee, MA and enjoy painting commissions. You can view my work virtually @www.Ellenkaiden.com, www.thewitgallery.com.
