I’ve started a new blog over at Weebly and I’ll be continuing my post and up-dates from there. I will miss many of you and I hope that you will stop by and say hi. Please visit www.victoriakloch.com
Thank you and paint like there’s no tomorrow.
My client just sent me this great shot of a piece I did for for her Hollywood Regency designed home in California. I incorporated gold leaf in this piece and worked acrylic like a watercolor. I absolutely am in love with this framed. It really was the icing on the cake for this piece and it brings out the gold in the painting.

We’ve hiked a lot at Sunol Regional Wilderness Park in Alameda County located eastern San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. Next to going to the ocean, this is one of my very favorite places to go to with it’s beautiful rolling hills laced with hiking trails for both visitors and cows.
Looking for a name? Stepping outside of the box for me with red and gold. Seems like no matter how much I try to get away from using blue in someway I tend to gravitate towards it. With this painting I decided to put my foot down and go for the reds with gold metallic paint. I’m so in love with these colors. This 30″ x 48″ painting can hang both vertical and horizontal. _Victoria
‘Under the Eames Tree’ geometric soft pastel abstract painting by Victoria Kloch
For the younger readers, I probably should explain why this title? The designers Charles and Ray Eames were key players in mid century art and revolutionized office and home furniture that is now considered as classic Eames. To make a long story short, after I finished this piece the title it hit me like a brick. It looked treeish, mid century with primarily colored blocks….yep….’Under the Eames Tree’. Below is a picture of the house that they called home.

Titled “Sailing’ acrylic on 16″ x 20” canvas modern abstract by Victoria Kloch
This painting sold many many moons ago but it is still getting traffic from Pinterest. As of today it has received 2,661 hits. I have painted several others similar for commissions, but this is now calling me to start on another in a larger piece just for fun and free from the pressure of making it for someone. Because of my under-layers peeking through, redoing this piece is like peeling an onion from the inside out. So off I go to begin a new adventure in sailing.

40″ x 50″ commissioned acrylic abstract painting by Victoria Kloch
From start to finish this painting was stretched on a handcrafted frame by Kurt Wedgley. Working on this large canvas was pure heaven because it was as tight as a drum with no interference of the braces underneath like a store bought canvas.

‘Still’ 30″ x 40″ acrylic abstract by Victoria Kloch
I have studied many of the mid-century artist work. For me the best way is to actually try to replicate their style hands-on. Lately I’ve been studying the work of Clifford Still. If you already know about the man and his work, you no doubt have formed your own opinions about him. I personally found his style of free flow vertical patterns with barbed like endings a challenge. This piece before you was inspired by his work with my own interpretations without copying one of his actual paintings. This piece is available to purchase.

‘Transcend’ commission heading for Brazil un stretched – 48″ x 85″ acrylic by Victoria Kloch
Home sweet home.
The process of creating this piece here was using many, many thin layers that ultimately created depth with a look of an oil/watercolor painting. The rewards of this slow process results in what comes to my eye is a pool of jewels, a foggy, mystical piece that draws your eyes and hands in for a closer look.
