The painting arrived timely, well packed. It is beautiful, the colors may be even more vibrant than in the picture posted on Artfinder. I have ordered a second painting from her already. So talented

Proud to have this lovely picture of the birches in my living room. I have property elsewhere--with birches--and when I am homesick I look at this painting fo rminutes at a time.

Response from OLena Art - Lena Owens

Dear Henry, I'm so happy to hear from you and I feel as you towards birches. Russians love their birches, they sing, paint, write about :) White-trunk birch became the symbol of spring, light and love to the fatherland. The word “birch” is very ancient and is connected with the verb “to keep, to take care”, since the Slavs considered the birch as the protecting people gift of God. The year began with spring and people celebrated it not with fir, but with the birch. Here in Colorado, the aspen is the most exquisite tree. Beloved by artists and photographers. Because I paint those two trees. Best wishes to you!

Lena's work is beautiful. My wife and I now have 3 paintings from Lena, and will continue to purchase her artwork in the future. On top of her great work, she was also very helpful and easy to work with during the entire ordering/purchasing process. I would and will recommend Lena to anyone looking for an amazing piece for their home.

Review posted Oct. 8, 2016

Sorr I do not do this it is I ratting. Your painting is simply fantastic. My rating is aimed at the marketing which I don't like Fill in thegaps as you see fit I love it. My only comment would be to paint it 2 meters by 3 meters but your probably not up to that. Paint large there is a strong market in me ( but I may be in a minority) keep painting, your style is strong and I love the depth of paint. Look to the Masters Jp

Dear Jonathon, I hope you've received the painting, I still don't know if you did, you never responded to my messages. Via customer support: "Hi there Lena, That's no problem at all! Your customer has been in touch to let us know that he really loves your work and he plans to pick the parcels up from the post office as soon as he can. He also mentioned that there is no need for you to cover the cost of customs as he believes it is his responsibility to do so. I'll be keeping an eye on this order but please do be sure to get in touch with any updates. I hope this review is much better! All the very best, ... Your feedback is important and I'm considering to paint big 2 by 3 meters sounds like a good advice. Thank you! Also thank you for reaching out, I wanted to know what happened. I sent you multiple messages you probably did not see: My messages: Subject: Dear Jonathon Hi Jonathon, did you hear from your post office? Let me know how I can help.

Afraid he's not going to pick up it from the post office. What should I do in such situation?" - lena via Artfinder Seller Support: "Hi Lena, Thank you for reaching out to us, I am sorry to hear you've been having trouble contacting your buyer. We have attempted to call the buyer but could not get through and instead left a voicemail. I have since placed the order on hold until we receive a response and the issue has been resolved. At the worst case scenario, if the customer does not respond to either of us, the courier will return the artwork back to you. Moving forward, I think the best approach would to be for you to also contact the buyer via phone call or text (the buyer's contact information can be found in your seller portal) and I would kindly ask that you get back in touch with me on Monday with an update. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns". - Artfinder Seller Support Subject: Question regarding Birch Trees (palette knife) Dear Lena Sorry my email was a little abrupt. I did not realise how much anxiety I was creating by not being in touch. I have been very pre occupied these last few weeks. Art finder is a little pushy with the amount of repeat emails they send but I guess that is just the way they do things. Back to your art. I like the depth of paint and the use of the knife combined with colour gives you a good style. You interpret you subject well and it would be good to see how you might achieve the Birch Trees in large format. When you have a skill, enjoy it, and this will come through in your work. You have a skill for colour and movement. Enjoy what you do above anything else 9 Oct 2016, 8:07 p.m. Seen Subject: Question regarding Birch Trees (palette knife) Dear Jonathon, I know and your suggestions are well taken, it is very true concerning that kind of texture and the size. There is a lot to learn and practice of course. I do big sizes for local galleries, but to ship, I did not figure it out yet. There should be better way to deal with custom fees, I'd be glad to pay them, but USPS don't have such option.. in any case, I'll look for better ways to deal with it. From the very beginning, I placed myself in your 'shoes' and I guess, I understood you well. And yes, Artfinder is pretty pushy, I receive a lot of adds from them each day... With your reviews, believe me, I was very very pleased, despite I received low score and all one star marks ;) just because you did not critique the quality of the painting, though you could. To be honest, to paint big size of similar painting is much easy for me, than small one - palette knife is not a very gentle tool. (I'm doing commission of 12"x12" now and I spent more time with it, than bigger one... ) And last - I'm very grateful for the experience and how it ended. Wishing you all the best and sorry for all troubles. Thank you!! ت

Wow! I discovered ArtFinder last week and took a chance on this painting because I loved the color and subject. The painting arrived today and exceeded my expectations. The colors were true to my monitor and the palette strokes are beautiful adding even more depth. I plan to hang it my bedroom in a corner with my comfy chair for reading.
