Forest Spirits

In some cultures it is believed that everything has a spirit. Forests, plants, and even everyday objects are full of soul particles. This fantasy painting depicts forest spirits in a shape of whimsical female forms. The forest itself looks magical and full of extraordinary colors. Green and blue foliage, red and yellow flowers, and colorful spirits mix together in a mystical dance. This painting is rather smooth, and the texture is achieved through colors. While looking at this painting, the viewer’s eyes are led in a circle from one object to another. Now, the viewer also participates in this magical spirit dance, following the circle of souls.

Haze over Fields

Haze over Fields was inspired by artist’s childhood memories of long car trips and endless fields seen through the window. The flow of the painting moves in two different directions. One is moving away from the viewer, leading the eyes to the center of the painting. Another one moves toward the viewer through the fields and creates a clash of lines right in the middle. The chaotic sky can be seen as a product of this clash in the fields. There is a notion of calm and chaos in this piece, but the chaos is in the sky this time. The dramatic clouds and stormy, yet gentle, colors are the proof. This original acrylic painting is 10” by 8” in size and quite smooth with very little texture. All strokes are flat, and the drama is represented by colors. Haze over Fields is an attempt to show the drama of what most people would consider plain and boring.

Field of Cornflowers

Field of Cornflowers was inspired by a patch of violet and blue boutonniere flowers in the middle of the city. This original acrylic painting is 8” by 10” in size with a heavy texture. The texture represents the layers of grass and stems which create textures in the nature. The flow of this piece also imitates the movement of the grass in the wind: a slight wave in one direction, then in another. The artist chose to incorporate warm yellow tones along with fresh spring greens to add the feeling of summer and warmth. Blue flowers with a hint of violet and white pop out of the painting and add coolness to the summer warmth of yellows and greens.
This impressionistic landscape painting would make a great gift for those who love prairie flowers and cornflowers in particular.

Wave of Calm over Chaos

This abstract painting hides the idea of calmness taking over chaos. The perfect blue consumes the chaos of life, turning it into peaceful emptiness. From the other point of view, the blue wave could be creating chaos. In any case, this is the relationship of calmness and chaos. There is no one without the other; as without chaos we cannot understand the true calmness. On one hand this is a very textured painting, which adds a special feel to the chaos part. On the other, the wave of sky is smooth and represents calmness.

Eternality of Confined Spaces

The nightmarish concept of this surreal painting lies within the idea of never being alone and always being watched. It seems to be in human nature to assume that we are always being observed by someone or something. The most common theory includes Santa Claus, but is it possible that we are monitoring over ourselves? People always try to stay in control of the situations, therefore we are watching over ourselves. This artwork contains a number of contradictions. For example, we see a tub that suggests a relaxing bath, yet it is felled with red liquid. This puts the viewer in the state of doubt, is it really that relaxing?

Winterscape

This miniature landscape painting was inspired by memories of frosty days and mesmerizing snow. The sound of crunching snow underneath one’s feet, the enchanting glow of the snowflakes in the sunset rays, the stillness of the sleeping river bound by ice. One of four wonders of nature is captured in this acrylic painting, the winter. This winterscape is done in both cold and warm tones to represent the feelings of the people who are in a warm, snowless place during the Christmas season. So, let it snow!
