Well, it's time to talk about one of my favorite works. The painting is called " Thinking about...". It shows a woman sitting at a table with nothing on it but an hourglass and a leaf from a tree. Her gaze is somewhat unfocused, which happens when people are lost in themselves. She is waiting for someone or just sat down to rest. You can make up a whole story. To think that could be due to the fact these items on the table. I admit, honestly – I don't know what they are doing there or why she needed them. I just wanted to put them in the picture. Intuition. This is something that I also often use in my work, when pareidolia no longer works, but the rules of art begin to apply, the most important of which is composition.
So at the time when I created this picture, for some reason I chose the smooth side of the Board. This was in 2014, as indicated by the date on the picture. And recently, in the summer of 2020, while in quarantine in the midst of a pandemic, I was sorting through my boards, making a catalog, and noticed that the reverse side of this Board is also very interesting, because even without paint, it clearly reads the face of a woman and an animal like a camel or a llama. You will see this when you look at the photos before and after.
So I decided to paint the picture on the second side of the Board. She was born very quickly, just in a couple of hours. I'm even embarrassed to talk about it). Of course, I had to wait for the paint to dry, wipe the paint with sandpaper in those places where it was necessary for me in accordance with my method, then cover it with varnish and wait for it to dry. So it was only two weeks before it was finally ready. I usually write several works in parallel, so I don't waste time waiting for them to dry. And now I have a two-sided picture that I love very much. I would be happy if it fell into the hands of people who would appreciate the advantage of such an interior item. After all, it can be easily rearranged and turned depending on your mood and interior colors. But most importantly, it is like all my paintings, written in collaboration with nature. Its energy, its smell, the feeling when you take it in your hands – all this warmth I would like to convey to real connoisseurs. We are waiting for You)
