I'm Russian-Canadian Artist living and working in Fergus, Ontario. Painting is the language I use to express my appreciation for the beauty of the Nature. In my paintings, I try to express something that catches my eye at a specific point in time. Bold colours, thick brush strokes, and the quick pace at wich I work are the means through which I able to capture and express some of the many moments I experience. I often do pencil and watercolor sketches outdoors - en plein air, and then use these sketches and/or reference photos to make my finished pieces on canvas with oil paint.
