Madeleine Prochazka

Although born and raised in France of Armenian parents, I came to the US long ago and have lived in California ever since.

I loved painting from a very young age but got discouraged by an unkind comment from someone I looked upon as an authority figure when I was 14. I then became an English language and literature teacher in France, then a French language and literature teacher in the U.S. I quit to raise two daughters and upon my return to the work force was forced to start a bottom level in business. Having made my way back up to managerial level since then, I have now retired.

I rediscovered painting a few years ago, thanks to a daughter who gave me an easel and canvases as a Christmas present. I haven't stopped painting since then! I was obviously impressed by the Impressionist style which my highschool teacher favored also. I love and appreciate any style, however, that somehow "speaks" to me.
I appreciate very much the friendship and acceptance I have found on Paintings I Love.

I have also joined a local art club, the San Fernando Valley Art Club. See more of my works on my websites, www.artbyapro.com, http://www. madeleine-prochazka.artistswebsite.com, as well as on Artbreak.com, and Saatchi On Line.com. I can be reached via email at mp@artbyapro.com.

Do you sometimes re paint a similar scene to try to improve it. Can you make up your mind which one is the better?
I love the use of colour and the composition, beautiful painting. In response to your question - no I never, it takes me a long time to finish a painting (I... view answer
