Hello Galina
I do like paintings that make me visualize objects or create a story. This is a moving picture to me. It is cleverly composed and well balanced.
I love the warm and cool colours that bounce off each other.
A beautiful painting.
Best Regards

Здравей. Някой неща много ми харесаха. „Молитва„ , „Търново„, това също и „зимата„. Почти всички всъщност:)

Lovely depth of colour. Really like this one.

Thanks for your support, these words really mean much to me.
I was attracted by that "impasto" technique long time ago and I still work that way.I like the relation and the contrast between the material shape and the depth of colours.
This painting was inspired by the medieval Bulgarian ortodox churches, where I work very often. The light and the atmosphere of these sacred places are amazing!
With kind regards
