Ready to Hang
Painting evokes the tumultuous surge of a big wave as it comes crushing down on the beach. One can feel the big turbulence of the surf and watch in awe the magnificent force of nature. The painting transports the viewer to the beautiful beach site and one is mesmerized by the amazing blue hues. The work was painted with acrylic on stretched canvas, the sides are painted, it is signed on the side, and it is ready to be hung.
Alina Deutsch was born in Bucharest, Romania and has lived in the United States for the last 45 years, mostly in Westchester County, New York. In addition to being both a successful electrical engineer and a cookbook translator and publisher, she enjoys painting and multi-media crafts. In this, she has been inspired by her mother, Estera Rogers, now 96, who has created beautiful oil paintings for many years. Both women have followed in the footsteps of their relative, Klein Hanni, who painted in her native town of Deva, in Transylvania, throughout her life. Alina has been creative for over 40 years but in 2009 she was given a new impetus. She retired from her engineering career and found a new outlet in her art. Suddenly she felt re-energized and confident, as if reconnecting with an old friend, her love of painting. She is now devoting her full-time to creative pursuits.
