The last days of summer and I can't believe it's almost gone! When you're in a middle of a hot New York hurricane, dreaming about chill autumn days, you don't miss it. You learn how to fall asleep with a loud AC working most of the night, you want to set up your home office under a cold shower and pretend you're a fish, trying to escape the stuffy subway at all cost... But still, you will never trade these little three months full of sunshine for anything else.
I've had so many custom works that I've never shared with you. Read More
August is a month when we all try to hold on to summer for as long as possible. A few more weeks to catch up on the sunshine and soak up as much warmth as possible, to feel green grass with your bare feet.
I'm very excited to know that my art travels to places I've never been. You take it with you all over the world. I have a big request for everyone who bought my owls. Read More
I want to share one of my last commissions and one of the best customer appreciation pictures I got for it! The morning, I discovered them in my e-mail I couldn’t stop smiling. I have the best clients in the world!
It’s an Owl Portrait a girl commissioned me to do for her boyfriend. I felt a big responsibility because it was his birthday present. I always do. Read More
Long time no see! I have so much going on in my life now that I don’t even know where to start.
A bit more than a year ago, when I just started nurturing the idea of doing art full-time, I felt inspired, incredibly happy and scared at the same time. I’ve never obtained a degree at art school and it scared me to death. I don’t know why I thought that in order get things going I needed to go thru years of college and that my art doesn’t counts if I haven’t done so. These silly thoughts slowed my progress a lot; they dragged me down so quickly that I found myself pushed into a corner by my own fears. I remember that one day I looked at my brushes, paints and albums, scattered on a dining table... Read More
One of the most interesting commissions I get is an Owl Family Portrait. It’s an exciting piece of work and always feels captivating and interesting to transfer peoples’ personalities into the Owls. It’s a challenge many way. Since it’s not about capturing features precisely, it has to go deeper and become more intimate. Because I'm allowed to glimpse into the life of the family, to learn about their favorite things, what makes them laugh, go through family pictures, get to know them better. Every step, every question is like a part of a wonderful jigsaw puzzle that comes together. Read More
I opened my eyes yesterday morning and found myself sunken in a rich milky light. As I was shaking away the traces of my dream, which I didn’t remember anyway, I tried to resist an ultimate desire to cover my head with a warm heavy blanket and fall asleep again. The window in front of me was beaming a pure white light into my eyes, tempting me to peek into the world outside. It’s the only window in our bedroom which isn’t covered with curtains. We like to watch the clouds and lonely planes drift thru the sky. This rectangular passage works as our personal calming eye-spa.
It was snowing again, heavy, leaving no hope for the sun... Read More
What I love about art is that it can tell the most amazing stories and let artist interlace his personal feelings and experience into it, enabling viewers to uncover them, guessing what the meanings maybe hidden behind the work. It gives viewers an opportunity to layer their own stories on top of what is said by the author. It’s my favorite part! I'd love to know what people see looking at my paintings and what surfaces in their minds, at that particular moment.
Each Owl I create has a story behind its feathers and its own unique personality. Some of them represent famous people, others reflect moods and emotions. I’ve decided to tell their stories here one by one to get you to know them better. Maybe you will see yourself in one of them some day. Read More
I’ve been looking at a blank page of my text editor for a while before starting this post, which happens to be my very first blog and my very first attempt to be consistent in journaling.
Because everything is new and fresh I have a feeling that I’m blogging in total obscurity and it’s like floating in open space. A serene feeling.
I thought I would share a little story about discovering my inner artist and why I’ve decided to dive into it. Read More
