Olympic Games


Canadian Goose

There are series of pictures “Olympic Games” with different animals. I found it funny to made sportsman of the animals. That topic had to be infinite. You may start from any kind of sports or any kind of animal, fish, bird, insect, etc. I used my favorite method monotype with lien, water colors, oil. The oil colors I applied are only for typing then I paint the pictures. Sometimes I use tempera to finish the work. These artworks allowed me to be accepted by the Union of Artist (Moscow). Also there are some graphic works about Canada tales. I will post it next time.

Let it snow...

Kostya and Mom 2010
Here we (Kostia and I) look. Kostya is armed with a shovel and set on the sled. Sometimes we got stuck in the bare ground because off yard cleaners doing their job so fast as they could – just do not allow the snow to stay on the ground a second. But the Commander doesn’t care that trifle. He is shouting and waving his shovel and demanding to continue the journey. It is very good for a walking by sled on a SNOW. If snow is over you then do the big eyes and red face and go forward!

Prohor, temp., paper 30x40 sm 1998

more Prohor


Some cats.
All my childhood I was fond of cats, all cats. Cats were everywhere. At the very beginning of my art career I drew cats every time as I remember myself. When I was about 13, my love to cats was gone. But cats (cat’s topic) have a big share in my creative work. Prohor, our last cat, was red, impudent, sly, many-sided personality. He has a life full of love adventures that is why it passed in fights.
