Sea, sand and summer breeze and that endless feeling of eternity when you look into the distance. The thoughts are floating on the streams of the seagull’s melodies. Just a few minutes more and the mind will dissolve in the calm infinity of the marine blue. Pause before a long exhale.
I open the eyes and see my studio. I’m there. The place I call home. In front of me, there are a few seascape paintings I’ve taken out of the racks this morning. Created with oil on canvas they still have that slight smell of the paint. The painting with seaside scenes spread the peaceful and meditative feeling. They are able to bring the mind back there, where the sound of the wave is the best breakfast. Sea, sand and summer breeze.
A broad sweep of fair yellow applied against the pale blue canvas points at the sailboats, the real sea wolves. The layering technique I use adds a depth and unique perspectives to the seascape paintings. Dynamics of the brushstrokes I laid around the calm and smooth sea brings an interesting twist to the scene and sets a perfect balanced relation between the movement and static.
Balance. The ultimate goal. Isn’t it what we are all looking for to make the life more harmonious and happier? The pursuit of harmony is a subtle theme of my creative practice. In all my paintings, it’s explicitly stated through the use of composition, color, and form. Least but not last is the energy I create it with, thoughts I put into it.
I concentrate on the beauty of life, and its value. My art doesn’t reveal the problems of the modern society. But it tries to solve them in its sensitive way – develop and increase the sense of the harmonious relationship between yourself and the Universe.
