As you all have probably noticed and as my mentor Elena Goubar mentioned "Slowly but surely" I continue to develop my new style with a deeper narrative and story, that more people can relate to.
Despite, how much I love to paint emotionally charged portraits and strong characters, it's not finding the right response in the practical world of the art market and sales.
I'm struggling with stepping out of my comfort zone and breaking some rules. Yes, it's painful and yes, it's scary but as I always preach "that's exactly where transformation begins". None of us like to hear critique and accusation in commercializing our art. Artists, public, friends and students will always have opinions based on their own experience, education and level of openness. I will continue braving the weather, searching for my own voice, no matter what. So here two new pieces, and I have about 5 in the making :)
