New Year is almost here :)

Why not make wrapping of the presents more son and I had a blast.
We used craft paper instead of wrapping paper, tons of markers and anything that could possibly write. Daniil used so many markers at the same time it was funny to watch (I am glad that we used washable markers since my son was covered with markers at the end). Then to distinguish whose present that was we used decorative wire and made initials out of it.

A little touch of Winter

So one night my son and I took scissors and some paper....and yes we made some snowflakes :)
And since my son is into numbers these days, we counted these snowflakes at least 10 times haha

Daniil's Birthday!

So it has been a while since I posted anything...Well, November was a fun month with many exciting events. My son turned 2 (I still can't believe it). I really enjoyed decorating for Daniil's Birthday Party, and I think at the end everyone had an amazing time :)

Welcome Fall!!!

Recently, I came across some coasters that were given to us a while back... Hmmm, what an interesting find :) sure enough it was a fun project for my son Daniil and I.
Daniil is a heavy magazine viewer :) so he gave me an idea to recycle our magazines that were piled on our kitchen table what a nice way to clean up and to get an "art piece" at the end.

Those coasters will become custom decoration pieces since pictures can be easily inserted on the back of them.

Watercolor self portrait 18"x24".

Watercolor painting of Admiralteistvo 18"x24" (used to be a Navy School in St. Petersburg, Russia) done by me in 2004.

Old art portfolio

Most of the drawings that you see on this photo were done for an art class in UWG. Looking at that spine drawing made me think at that time when I could not decide on my major and taking a life drawing class definitely has an impact on my decision. Yes, I thought I would be a medical illustrator! Wow, how off I was...

This is another photo of my works. The one that you see on the top is myself portrait influenced by Ed Paschke's style. He was and still is one of the amazing painters with his unique sense of style. Oh, and the cat that you see wandering around in the background is Bagira who is always involved in my art process.

4th of July!

Happy July 4th to everyone!!!
The day started with our visit to the Marietta Square, and to our surprise we made it just in time for the July 4th parade. It was definitely fun and honestly this was the first time that I have been to one. Check out the images from it while I am back to looking through my art portfolio.

My favorite oil paintings.

Recently, I had a chance to clean and organize what I call my art studio (it actually lives in my garage, spreading over couple of shelves). Here are some of my favorite oil paintings that were done a while ago. It feels as if I forgot how to hold a brush and what oil paints smell like. I definitely want to start painting again. For now enjoy my previous work and there will be more to come!
