Natalija Žitnik Metaj, Wind in the Wing, 2010

When I was in primary school I participated in Grohar's Small painting colony. I stopped painting because of my visual impairment. I started again in 2008 in the then formed group of painters with visual impairment at MDSS Kranj. The first mentors were Ivan Stojan Rutar and Marjeta Žohar. I also visit art colonies (Izola and Okroglo).

I participated in five international Art@senses exhibitions in Italy and Estonia. On the occasion of the World Expo 2015 Milano, I exhibited my work in Milan. I have painted over 90 paintings, participated in 36 group exhibitions and one solo exhibition. I paint wih acrylics.

Technique: acrylic on canvas
Size: 60 x 50 cm
Place and year of creation: 2010
Description. The waves of the sea in the background are blue-grey. A storm is brewing. A young girl walks on the beach. She is facing the sea. The wind is blowing up her light blue and white summer dress. Her skirt flutters in the wind and rises above her knees. On her head there is a straw hat with a blue ribbon. The ribbons flutter in the air. The girl holds the straw with her left hand to prevent the wind from carrying it out to sea.
