experimenting 4

I finally could relax last weekend after dropping off 8 paintings at Common Grounds. I couldn’t stay longer to see the paintings hanging on the walls, but I may come by sometime to see how they look like, and also to take a look at the other artists’ work. here’s how they look framed – I did all the job: if you live in the Lexington area, come by to check them out. they will be displayed up to September 12th. + Serpentarium is one of the paintings I wanted […]


a new hope 1

have not heard from the cafe people in a while, so I’m assuming that the show is not going to happen – or it’s not going to happen so soon. to tell he truth I am a little alleviated since I’m in a middle of an artistic crisis and feeling nauseous every time I look to one of my pieces. pieces I loved so much and had so much pleasure doing.

Tree of Life – how a painting is born, part I 2

I decided to give me a more prolonged break from the the triptych and work in a different project. since I had planned to submit a piece to the beautiful Embracing Our Differences exhibit, I decided to start working on it. I thought that it might be also a good opportunity to show in more details how I create and build a picture – and how crazy and erratic the creation process can be. the image submitted to the exhibit should not be very complex, but rather transmit the idea […]
