An excellent way to commemorate an unforgettable vacation is to find a new painting or print here on Zatista.com that artfully represents some of the memories from your adventure.

Summertime Bonfires

S’i Fossi Foco (If I Were Fire) by Sharilyn Neidhardt $220

One of my favorite activities during summer vacation is having a bonfire night. Getting together with friends and family at the beach to cozy up by the fire on those perfectly cool summer nights is a feeling that can’t be beat.

Bonfires by Jeff Pugh $360

I laugh at how territorial everyone is about their fire pits though. On crowded beach days, it can be a race to see who reserves their fire pit first. When there aren’t enough fire pits for the amount of people at the beach we share with strangers and it turns into something beautiful! This is a wonderful way to make new friends.

Jet-Puffed Marshmallows by John Kilduff $545

Something about roasting marshmallows and singing songs by the fire brings us all closer to one another. Personally, I like to roast my marshmallow until it’s that perfect golden brown. Some of my friends prefer burning theirs to a crisp. What do you prefer?

Dollop by Joel Degrand $1,500

What’s a bonfire without s’mores? I remember feeling so accomplished after making my own s’more for the very first time. They are so delicious, although very messy. But that’s part of what makes them fun. I can’t wait for those summer bonfire beach days this year!

The Beach by Valerie Vescovi $860

Will you be planning any bonfires this summer break? If not, bring the bonfire home to you. You won’t need firewood or a bathing suit. Instead, you can find some bonfire-inspired pieces on Zatista.com and bring the fun (without the mess) to your living room with great original artwork from Zatista.com.

Women In Art

Have you seen Wonder Woman yet? Don’t worry, there won’t be any spoilers here. If you haven’t had a chance to see it, I highly recommend it. It’s an incredible movie. Wonder Woman, also known as Diana – Princess of the Amazons, is a strong and influential character. The movie inspired me to check out some pieces on Zatista.com that portray themes of strength, beauty, and confidence.

Dreams and Secrets by Christine Cousineau $1,443

This piece showcases strength in a way that may not be immediately obvious. The artist, Christine Cousineau, describes the gaze of the young woman as being “directed to the viewer … on first glance she appears open. On consideration it seems clear that there is more going on. She is protecting her dreams and her secrets.” Why must she protect her dreams and secrets? Someone hiding their dreams from the world could be doing such a thing to protect others that they care about in their life. To me, this shows strength. It takes a strong person to put others’ lives before their own. It must be a difficult thing to have to endure, but if it is for the sake of someone they care about, I understand why they would choose to do it. They could also be doing this because they want to escape judgment and ridicule that they may have experienced in their past. I believe that someone who has experienced the pain of bullying or judgment is stronger in the end.

Portrait in White Dress by Katia Bellini $2,175

There is something beautiful in mystery, don’t you think? This oil painting by Katia Bellini is as mysterious as it is captivating. The fact that the subject is not facing the viewer creates mystery. Her white dress flows beautifully around her and is contrasted with her dark, masculine boots. The subtle breeze that seems to catch her hair creates a feeling of effortless beauty. Her dress is covering the seat that she is sitting on so it almost appears as if she is floating, giving her an angelic quality.

The Writer by Dominique Amendola $2,000

I think this piece exudes an aura of confidence and even playfulness – the colors and subtle patterns make it light-hearted and fun. The bold stance of the author and her fixed gaze demonstrate confidence and determination. “The Writer” is determined to finish whatever she is working on. She looks confident in her abilities even though she may have stopped to think about what it is that she wants to write. The familiar way she holds her quill and grasps the napkin by her side shows that she has been in this position before. She appears to be deep in thought but is confident that her muse will come to her any moment now, while we are left with suspense and wonder.

Tendencies – Blue Abstract by Cristina Stefan $1,457

I thought it would be fun to add a bonus piece that was more connected with the appearance of Wonder Woman than with the themes I got from the film. In this abstract red, white, and blue piece, the colors reminded me of Wonder Woman’s classic costume. So, if you haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet this summer, I hope this encourages you to go and see it! It’s a great movie for kids and adults alike. I also hope that you discover an artwork here on Zatista.com that you are able to connect with on a deep and personal level. I encourage you to browse around until you find that piece that speaks to you!

An Instagrammers paradise, MOIC has received phenomenal attention – each time tickets are issued, they sell out within a day.

With installations such as a swimming pool of sprinkles, a banana room, a popsicle room, a lot of hot pink phones, a visit to MOIC makes for miles of smiles and a fun filled photo shoot with the family.
