This past week has been very busy for me. I think I caught the fever of painting. I just can’t stop painting. Honestly, I have been painting and painting, day and night, and now after couple of days I am taking a break updating my blog with new images of selected watercolour works.
The trip I had in Romania this summer inspired me to paint these paintings. Visiting my home town made me see the things differently about the past. I couldn’t recognise anyone, I couldn’t see familiar faces. I felt that the town where I grow up somehow disappeared in my soul. I felt that everything that once was so alive, now are only ruins of the past. Places become nothing without people you love or you knew.
My dear friends,
Here’s some of the work I've been producing over the last couple days in my very small working area.
I have been trying to do small sketches in order to not lose my control of my painting skills. I am so looking foward to go back to my university studio space at the end of this month.
