Faux Painted Dome & Side Wall: Old World Style 



In progress:  Faux painted Green Onyx from Pakistan -Trompe L'oeil Columns (unfinished)


Green Onyx from Pakistan is not commonly found

in homes. Creating the look of green onyx from Pakistan with paint and brushes is even more uncommon. These columns will be the only ones

of their kind in America, perhaps even beyond our boarders. What you see is the result of many layers of paint combined with a traditional background in materials and techniques of the Old Masters, and countless hours of work.  As soon as possible, I will be creating a web page for the columns and dome that will show the different stages of each project. So please come back soon...

Painting and sculpting is my passion! I strive not for perfection but rather for excellence in creating artwork that is not only esthetically pleasing, but also fires up the imagination and captures the eye. My work is colorful, sometimes playful, but always with a serious edge that serves to balance what is... and what is not...

Thank you for visiting, 

Tamara Gerkin

Since painting these paintings 2 of the 3 people they were dedicated to have passed away.  One, my 37 year old niece, died from complications that came from taking Tysabri, which is a drug given to those with aggressive MS. The other died from MS complications, she was only 55. May they both rest in peace.
