Terrific portrait. I think the thick impasto signals a tradition of paint handling that instantly says expressionist. Because of that, I'm given to study your portrait more closely for its mood and feeling.

Thank you Stephen. I chose this way of painting because it gives me the possibility to express myself. Of course, the way to find the way is different and unique for each one of us...

Thank you, Zhao and hello. I also hope that we will talk again. I find your work very interesting.

Thanks, Mariano, you are very kind. I also enjoyed your paintigs.

bonjour galina

just a little question: what size are your paintings?

I think it's important to indicate the sizes...

PAIN ON, carry on being inspired & be happy.

Hi Galina,
As I've said earlier,I like your abstract style of painting and the usage of colors.This painting is no exception.I feel like doing at least one painting in impasto though it won't be easy!

Hello Adam.
Thank you for reminding me. But when I started with this blog I was a little sceptic and never thoght that any artist or anyone else would be interested in the particular sizes of my paintings. So, I`ve made it.

Hello Ramesh,
Thanks for your encouraging. Try the impasto, I don`t think this will be very difficult for you.

Best Regards
Galina

Hello. Saw you on my followers and came to pay a visit. Your work is quite distinctive - I love your heavy paint and your sense of color. I think the image on your header is way cool.

Happy painting!
