Commission For Jesse And Kelli


                          I just finished these two paintings for twin sisters.  The paintings measure 36 x 48                                                             and feature a floral and peacock theme.


        The painting features Dahlia's and branches from a Crepe Myrtle tree.  The peaches are also from the garden.  The vase is a malachite with nudes and the bright yellow Chinese opium jar really pops.   To the side is a Murano glass peacock.                  



 The Blue Hibiscus is from my garden.  The Tiger Lily lives outside the gate so the cats don't eat              them.   The peacock is an old Czech light that is broken and beautiful.  The pitcher has peacock             eyes and the glass vase has peacock blue crystals.

Paintings From Laguna Beach

                                                          Rachel Uchizono Fine Art

                    This painting was painted en plein air.  You can tell by the sand showing in the oil paint.    Painted when I was last in Laguna.  The summer of 2019 when I did the Sawdust Festival.  This was        painted with my old gallery mate, Jim Wodark.

The turret in Victoria Beach was my favorite spot as a teenager. Next to the turret is a rock pool built to fill with ocean water at high tide  providing a wonderful place to swim.

Floral Paintings By Impressionist Artist Rachel Uchizono

                                                                   UCHIZONO GALLERY

Persimmons and Zinnia's from the garden.  The garden and painting go hand in hand.  This is my world.

I am trying to keep busy in the studio but the state of the world is on my mind.  And everyone's mind.  Don't lose hope or faith.  This time next year is what I am living for.  I want to meet my granddaughter Nova and watch her grow up.  So, I am staying home and isolating now.  

                                                      UCHIZONO GALLERY

It's hard to paint when there is no audience.  I am used to my booth at the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach.  I miss talking to people all summer and painting throughout the year.  We are all adrift.

Feels Like Spring

Lily arrangement in an antique center piece urn set in front of the church window in my studio.

It's a long painting.  48 x 24
The table is covered with a yellow sari.

Large Hollyhock painting that I just finished.  I have an ornate gold frame that go well with this floral painting.

I miss Laguna Beach.  Here is sunset at Heisler Park.  I will be back this summer to see my boys and
paint on location.  The Sawdust Festival may not happen this year.  I am anxious not knowing what the summer will be,
but I know I am not alone with that.   I have to remember to breath.  We should all take a deep breath.

Will There Be A 2020 Sawdust Festival?

36 X 48 Hollyhock painting.  Larger painting of these tall flowers that grow like crazy in my backyard.  I have been told they are out house indicators. What an attractive way to locate an outhouse.    Lol

                                      My favorite subject is the Laguna Canyon Wilderness Park.                                                        This is the staging area at El Toro and it is the view from the parking lot.
Heisler Park is a favorite place for Plein Air painters.  With so many different views, there are many paintings waiting
to be discovered.

Iris and the Opium Jar
 The Flow Blue waste bowl and the green Chinese opium jar are
colorful subjects that find their way into my paintings.
I was looking forward to exhibiting at the summer 2020 Sawdust Festival, but I am not sure the
festivals will happen this year.  I hope everyone stays safe and that you all find everything you need to shelter in place.
