About The Artwork

This old woman is essentially a witch, and her image was created by painting another work of art. I was mixing oil colors using this little cardboard as a palette, when I suddenly noticed her expressive face with a bright eye. For a while i thought about what she is doing and what this light so bright is from. Stove? Bonfire? Finally the cigar appears on its own. When painting this work I mostly use a palette knife.

Dreams inspire most of my creative work. In my view, dreams are of great value because they store a large number of ideas, stories and characters. I think also that some dreams bring a message which can be important to someone. So I want to share them with other people. In my artworks I try to find the optimal balance between drawing and painting. I am fascinated by the black and white free-line-drawing which is very lightweight and able to perfectly convey any character. In its turn the color is important to express the general mood or to put accents. After studying in art academies, I continue to experiment and to improve this technique on paper and on canvas using ink and chalk crayons for drawing.
