Early morning sketch Upstate.


Was exploring shades of white and had fun mixing my pens and pencils early in the morning, around 6 am.



I used Wink of Stella pen by Kuretake, so the white is sparkling, but photo doesn't show it.

Selfie with the toothbrush.

It is sort of a self portrait. Artists look so serious when painting self portraits. I was not joking. I was thinking if my inner pain ( and artists always full of that inner pain, because they constantly searching for ways and answers, so I told my daughter don't ever get involved with artists, :) one in the family is more than enough), so if my inner pain is looking at me in the mirror.
I used ink and Kuretake on Arches paper.

Pumpkins.

Pumpkins. Experimenting on plastic paper. Pretty strange, ink doesn't stick to it, but I fought to the end, just to understand, I don't like it.

Glass and feelings.

Feeling pretty down sometimes and didn't keep up with posts and other things. Shouldn't be too hard...

to start being more active again.  Here is painting on a glass, where I can be free with color and use my imagination.


It is sort of floral.


Was pretty limited color palette, believe it or not. With bigger selection of colors possibilities are endless. Love doing it.



Playing with textures.

Bloody Mary.


One of the brunches with my daughter, we had the best "bloody mary" drink, it was a little bit unreal, for some reason reminded me the atmosphere of 60s, may be her retro dress and red lipstick?
By painting this I stopped the time and I can feel the sun on my skin, remember that turquoise Florida sky, hear clicking of glasses somewhere on the background. Anyway, I used ink and Kuretake and touch of Artist Pitt pens.

Cool bracelet is our future Iphone?

Interesting idea to use your skin instead of handheld.

Amazing bracelet!

Everyday is something exiting about life.  Yesterday saw a program on TV about dogs able to detect cancer cells at the very beginning of deadly disease. Dogs, able to feel level of blood sugar and worn people before it become too dangerous.

Pumpkins on Yupo paper.


A little experiment with ink and Kuretake on Yupo paper. Stubbornly I screwed up the paper, it is plastic, so I can't scan it, but whatever, at least I stuck to my plan. And I was able to draw.

It was a very hard year for me, 2014 and I need to survive another year.
I soaked and washed some of my brushes and pens in a hope that drawing will help me to think positively.

Textures, who knows where it may end up.

Interesting, sort of woven texture. It could be for the focal point in the living room, combined with glazing, glass and leather.

Seems simple, but really cozy on the wall, also for main wall in the room.

Here is organic metallic texture with couple of glazes.

A little different, with grainy background.

3D Texture, pretty cool for a bar or a nice modern living room. Anything against it would look sleek and pleasant, but has to be simple, like metal, glass or leather.

This one still wet, but promising. Should be antiqued and glazed.
Really like to play with different materials, experiment and get inspired by nature.

Painting Sukkahs and a big challenge.

Painted few Sukkahs on panels for Holiday Sukkot. Here is Tomb of Mother Rahel, the Mother of Sorrows.  I spent a day for each painting, in one day I did 2 paintings, crazy long days. Panels are pretty big, walls for Sukkahs. On the top going bamboo branches, so you can see stars through the roof, while celebrating holiday.

The City of David, was pretty challenging, to build all this structures in perspective and in proportion.

Kotel was the first I did and I struggled a lot, to keep all this lines dancing on panels.

This was big and fiberglass bumpy, so paint was sliding like crazy and lines danced, pretty hard, so almost with my eyes closed I finished it.

Also on fiberglass panel. This and a previous one I did in one day. It was useful experience and big challenge. I had shawarma twice, it was not as amazing as in "Olympic Pita", our favorite shawarma and falafel place, also I ate it alone, but still it was a small  highlight of the day.

Charm City Burger. One of the electric nights in Florida.

I used ink and Kuretake. Used a lot of texture, trying to depict broken light from passing cars (it was outside), street lamps, moonlight, late meal, scattered conversation. It was one of the best burgers ever, I asked to go there twice.

Here is my little helper, Lucy, since she came to me from Moscow, she learned how to use scanner (she really likes the sound and blinking light), printer (printed my entire mailbox), she likes to watch me draw and thinks that I am coming to sit near computer just to be with her. She goes in front of the screen and stares at me.

Just like that. Isn't she adorable?
