Stella Im Hultberg has a new show of her exquisite paintings opening Friday at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles. Previously, Hultberg's media-of-choice have been ink and watercolors on tea-stained paper. These new pieces are oil on canvas. The show runs through September 5. Thinkspace has posted a sneak preview on Flickr of the new paintings and Hultberg's studio. From her artist statement:
