Today I put some more hours on this oil painting.I was so carried away that I even forgot to eat lunch.I can not deny there was a moment of struggle with the oil paints but I also enjoyed them very much.The painting is almost done.It needs a couple of fine details and i have to fix the sky bacause I smudged it when doing the houses.

This painting depicts an old house in an old city in Bulgaria,I don't remember which one.It reminds me of the school field trips to historical places from my childhood.In September my daughter and I are going to Bulgaria for three weeks.Maybe that's why my thoughts took that direction and I felt like painting landscapes from my native country.It is 9x12 on acrylic paper.

I am happier with this one.This red barn is in a place named Choice which is situated in a beautiful valley. It is especially pretty in spring when the fields are covered with flowers and the grass is bright green.This piece is not big,a post card size,5x7,on canvas board with acrylic paints.

I have always liked to paint musicians. They look so spiritual and inspiring to me.
This time I was not so concerned about the resemblance with the real subject but I was trying to achieve that dreamy mood of the person absorbed in the world of music.

I painted this portrait of my daughter Sonya at the early hours of 4th of July when everybody at home was sleeping.I am pleased with the way it turned out. The resemblance is pretty good and I am happy with the color scheme.
The piece is 8x10 on stretched canvas. I used Daler and Rowney acrylic paints.

I still don't have much time for painting-too much to do around the house,but I'm getting there.The painting I am posting now was painted in March /before the move/while waiting for another one to get dry.I would call its style fantasy ,primitive ,folk art. Whatever it is I had great fun painting it.It is on acrylic paper,6x9.
