Fifi Flowers Giveaway


Fifi Flowers is offering an amazing Artful Giveaway! You will love her style and panache. Her art is wonderful for collecting as well as gift giving. Below is just a small sampling of her art and my interview with Fifi.



"Art is an experience that transcends all cultural boundaries.....it makes us feel!"



KA: Who or what first inspired you to start painting?

Fifi: I was first inspired to paint when I realized I could not afford a REAL Henri Matisse painting and began copying them. My first reproduction was A View out of Paris apartment window!

KA: How do stay motivated to create new art consistently?

Fifi: Seeing things that surround my daily life online is what motivates moi to paint… there are so many FABuLOUS photos online… visiting blogs, socializing via online media and photos scream to moi PAINT ME!!! Anddddd I am always snapping photos via my iphone of things in the REAL world and magazines aussi!

KA: What artists do you emulate or admire a great deal?

Fifi: My all time favorite artist is Henri Matisse… j’adore his BRIGHT colours and exciting pattern compositions!

KA: Tell me about when you first started your art/blog site……

Fifi: I started blogging in April of 2008. My maman told me about blogging… she read about in the Wall Street Journal and then I read about “paintings a day” in Domino magazine. I visited the Painting a Day website and read that you must have a blog for at least 4 months to be considered… sooooo I began blogging… then I started an Etsy account and here I am!

KA: What are your next projects or shows coming up….?

Fifi: Next project… Welllll I’m VERY EXCITED about this coming year as I will be getting back to my REAL passion… painting on canvas!!! Anddd I’m hoping to do more art trunk shows and some gallery showings… and of course I’m hoping to make a trip back to PARIS!!!

Hi, Karena! I want to first thank you for posting your kind comment on my blog. I am so happy I found you! I am a new follower, and I visited Fifi's etsy shop. Her art is so much fun! I particularly liked the Holly Golightly paintings and the Je t'aime Paris Cafe painting. C'est magnifique! I also posted about your giveaway on my blog with a picture and links. I sure hope I win :D

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Thanks so much, darling, for stopping by the Ooh La Frou Frou blog & mentioning the Fifi Flowers giveaway! Love Fifi! We follow each other on Twitter & she's a treat! I would LOVE to win! I already follow you on your blog, and I was perusing her site and it was just to daunting to figure out what I liked best, as I like it all!! I think if I had to choose (forced at gunpoint) I would say ..... maybe a view of the Eiffel from a glam apartment or an outdoor cafe? Anything with the Eiffel in it! Thanks so much, Karena!

Sending you loads of holiday Cheer ~

I love Fifi's work! It's so whimsical and sweet. I think "A Paris Style Christmas" is my favorite. And her answer to why she first began painting is so funny!

What a wonderful opportunity! I don't even have to go to Fifi's site to know my favorite images - I love the Breakfast at Tiffany's paintings - and the Paris Music Room II, with the piano and view of the Eiffel Tower. I've long been a fan.

OH! - and I'm a follower of yours!

(Thanks for visiting my first day back from hiatus!)
