Self-consciousness

Oil on Canvas, 20″ X 28″

Sitting on my shoulder,
Yapping all day long.
Annoying parakeet!

You have a very interesting back story.. you have studied in some great places, and it sure shows in your technique and style...how did you come up with the style of the puzzle looking ones? I was so surprised it was oil , I thought maybe it was done on the computer...its obvious I'm not so experienced.. i love running across a great artist such as yourself.... i have lots of imagination but in no way is it as good or even close to someone like you and your experience...I truly enjoy watching and seeing what one comes up with in the future....thanks again or I'll say the only Ukrainian word I learned , Spasibo!

Thanks for your feedback! Let me try to answer some of your questions.

  1. I didn't come up with this style. It developed slowly over 20 years into something it is today.

  2. I don't employ imagination in my artworks. I improvise. I start from nothing, without an idea of what the painting will be. And after many hours of work something comes out, which I can later interpret as I see it. Recently I started to take videos of creative process and post them on youtube, here's the link if you are interested to see:

Good luck!

Thanks for the response, and I'm sorry for saying your imagination when you improvise, bad choice of words, I too draw that way, I have no forethought or any ideas I must start drawing and that is what comes out at the end... thank you do for the link.

Again I love your balance of form and disjunction. Also keep being brave with your themes and finding the expression thereof
