Deer Room Service I often have rather deep messages and meanings behind my paintings, some of which I only come to understand years after creating them. However, this time the story behind the picture is very simple: The deer is renting apartments for the birds. Also, a very good excuse for me to paint a great amount of details to keep myself entertained.
Is Anyone Home? The mood in this particular painting differs from all the other ones I’ve made. Usually everything I create is more or less happy and full of joy, but this one is quite gloomy. This was intentional, for I wanted this painting to raise questions in a person viewing it. That’s why even the title is a question. Are there questions in your mind now?
The Queen of the Jungle Tigers remain one of my favorite animals when it comes to my art subjects. In this artwork, the main idea was to make the stripes of the tiger to be formed by the leaves.
Medusa When I started sketching “Medusa” I only had the lady in my mind. Then, as I proceeded with the sketch she was accompanied with a cat, a crow and the spiders. This happens to me quite often though: the final idea of an artwork reveals itself to me only when I’m putting it on the paper.
Mermaid I wanted to create a mermaid that was not too much of an “ordinary” one, for example, compared to the ones we see in cartoons. That’s why the tentacles came into the picture. That’s also the reason I decided to draw her completely naked, just like any other creature living underwater.
