Where did you paint it? From the top of a building beside/near the Church? It seems to be the view of a sparrow who is flying towards that tower, or maybe upper high, towards that wonderful blue sky.

Not as impressive as Храмът (The Church), less powerful and touching. I think it's like if you were bored and finished it before adding more details. The half-down side of the painting is not very easy to understand for me. Храмът is lovely, you were a wonderful disciple of Van Gogh there. Here I love the sky and the tower. The rest is not very pleasant, however its artistic values...

I try to imagine Galina Nikolova being more faithful to reality, not so abstract, and the things that I see are so amazing as the place where she lives.

I imagine her too, painting mothers and children in a delicate, tender, emotional and powerful way. I'm sure those paintings should be a helpful key to general acclaim and applause. And that would lead to an easier and more commercial future.

Why don't you paint the sky and church as a landscape BEHIND a close-up of a Motherhood? Joining your talent for nature and architecture, with your deep emotions as a mother of a little baby? THAT would be TOUCHING. A mother nurturing her child, with a Nikolovian landscape behind...

I have a special feeling about that place - the city of Ohrid in Macedonia. In the middle ages the city was capital of Bulgaria an it is really very interesting. It is situated at the bank of a huge deep lake and I strongly recommend you to visit it if you have that possibility>
