Last year I painted a little plein air study titled El Pescador Morning. This year I went ahead with a larger scale work and this is the result. This work is painted on canvas stretched over a board. The artwork is sold unframed and therefore it is not ready to display or hang. For an additional charge of $320 I offer a luxurious Craftsman style frame, hand made in USA of quarter sawn white oak, see second photo. This early twentieth century style frame perfectly complements my California Impressionist style work.
Born in Lithuania and raised in the Russian part of the Soviet Union I now reside on the outskirts of greater Los Angeles in the free-spirited Topanga Canyon, where I am able to quickly access the little known rural scenes in the Santa Monica Mountains, as well as famous and popular beaches and cliffs from Malibu to Santa Monica. By gracefully simplifying my brushwork and color I aim to convey the feeling of vastness of the California landscape. My floral watercolors are Botanical Plein Air, where I find the beauty in not only the flowers, but in the imperfections of withered leaves and stems. Each spring I hike on local trails to paint the diverse and delicate California's wild flowers. My fresh palette and brushstrokes are the result of the academic art training I received in Moscow, Russia and many years of painting en plein air in Southern California.
