Mandarins & Bone

The story happened with Pika in 2004-05.
Sky
Hmm, this is not soo interesting story…
Pika
Ok, Pika, we decided, we all don’t mind to tell All about us…
Dasha
Well, that time Pika, was watching Chivolya & Yulia, well as always. But he usually was mad of their food.
Freaka
Yeah, it is sooo tastful… ummm :)
Pika
Yeah, and he first was tasting all… Then was stealing smth… Then this smth began to grow… So already me and Tuzon were helping him bring food home…
Freaka
Yeah yeah… Then Sany noticed that we brought real food home…
Tuz
And I said you all that It is Soo bad, steal food. PLus from parents, plus when you have a LOT of food at fridges, plus when they don’t have soo much food as you do!!!
Sany
Really I myself understood, but hmm well smth happened in my head…
Pika
Yeah we all said Sany yeah we stopped doing that. Only will ask Chivolya & Yulia, or after they will invite…
Freaka
But Dad… He was continuing… I all the time was watching as he were running with smth and while running He put food inside himself, whatever it was: piece of pie, or just of bread, apple, or mandarin, tomato, whatever…
Tuz
I remember Chivolya was asking Tuz…
Dasha
Yeah Yeah Chivolya, you remember?
Sany
Yeah, I asked Tuzik, where is ur Dad, where is Pikachka? And tuzik said ah now I see him running home back, with Mandarin… Oh just ate full mandarin at once.
Chivolya
Well, such thing can happen with everybody (made an intelligent face).
Pika
Then Dad, was suffering, ’cause eating madarins convert him to ball, with legs, hands and ears… And then he during few days have a problem with stomach and only was spending time in his room, where only sitting and working with sketches… And talking… But he couldn’t move enough.
Tuz
I was too busy that time, I was changing smth in my school and we just were building our house with Angello. And I didn’t come to that our common house where usually we spent every day some time together.
Sany
But one day… Chivolya made soup with Bone. Bone size may be 15 cm.
Freaka
As I know soup already was not fresh when all this thing happen.
Sany
Yeah soup was almost ended
Tuz
And by the way the bone already was without meat. Day before Julie’s grandpa ate it. So s I remember this bone was on the plate on fridge that to put it in garbage.
Freaka
So Dad again was somewhere that day, I was guessing he again checking food in Chivolya’s kitchen. Then I had a work and when I return this our common home I found Dad…
Freaka: Stop, stop, stop… Here goes my part. I first came home & Pika had a changed shape of body (Sky: My note: by the way Pika in tall has maximum 7 cm with ears).
Tuz
I felt sooo bad…
Pika
Yeah and you remember first what you told me?
Freaka
???
Pika
You said: Oh, I ate something wrong. Hmm, I think Jenya still has feelings to me and hate I with Dasha and she put me poison in food… Anyway I asked you but why you are so changed and your body part became longer.
Freaka
Anyway I was home that day and I said to Freaka that Pika was at Chivolya’s kitchen.
Pikulya
Yeah than Pika with great hard explained us what he ate. But anyway in final part he added that he is sure if he didn’t eat Jenya’s food all was ok. Pikulya that moment began to laught at Pika. But I was thinking what to do with him. I called to Sany to come make hanna, her phone not answer. Jenya said he didn’t have any power to make anything for him after such his words about poison in his dish. I called to my girls they take some medicine and axaminate him made some inections that he did’t suffer so much. So we all began to sit and wait when Sany would be available. But she was busy with her projects and she was out of our area.
Freaka
I had a meeting that day with some my friends. But Tuzon helped to sitution very very very well.
Sany
So I continue. We all were sitting around Pika, who was very bad even couldn’t said a word and was sitting in his arm-chair with blanket. This moment came back home Tuzon from recording and he did not know that Pika so bad. He wanted to tell something to Dad jumped at him to embrace him, pressed his stomach, began to tell his story… But stopped ’cause this moment he jumped something flew out from Pika… Tuz was wondering but Pika felt him better after… His pain stopped and he fell asleep.
Freaka
And then I came home at the evening and I remember I was making him hanna. He had some broken part of his body inside because of bone. Was very dangerous if he continued to be with bone.
Sany
I was worried to see him soo tall :(
Dasha
Anyway all finished Ok. Pika understood that he goes crazy with stealing food from Chivolya…
Sany
yeah I know it was bad.. But anyway Chivolya’s food sooooo sooooo soooo good…
Pika
Pika, when you have in each house fridge full of food, when you perfectly cook yourself.
Dasha
Yeah, Dasha… I know!!!!!!!
Pika
That’s all story about bone and mandarins.

Paints… My Palette

Paints… My Palette

So today I’d like to tell about paints I am using in my Palette. So first of all I am gonna paste an image which will show the colors I am usually using:

I usually put them all to palette when begin painting. And in days when I just continue I just add a colors I need right now. But if I need like refresh myself for this painting I take off all colors from palette and put them all again, well usually it happens when I there is not clean space for fresh thoughts.
People usually use ochre color a lot or like main color. Long time I didn’t use this color, reason: a. I don’t like, b. in my case it made a dirt, like all colors convert to dirty. So I stopped to use it. Then my friends made me a present with many different oil colors, where were also some ochre colors. So currently I have but still not use as usually people do. I use only when I feel I need to put this color. Though anyway many of my paintings don’t include this color. Same happens with different browns… I usually got the color as of ochre as of brown mixed other colors and it looks more interesting colors then when I use just those colors. Or in my case I can use this colors only when I make a copy in flemish style.

Following colors Cadmium Red Deep really the same color… But I use them both and I will tell you why, Master Class edition is a real color natural I mean, and when you use it you see as light reflected inside the color. In “Ladoga” edition cadmium red deep goes like Imitation what mean color not natural. And it looks like toothpaste, not transparent and light doesn’t go through. But if to combine both those colors, red looks very real and not dead.

Here goes another Red ones. One Red Vermilion one of necessary red color for me, before in ru edition I used it with name Cadmium Red Light, same color. It also helps to make a red color more real. And Magenta Medium looks like dark pink color. Wel for my palette is very important to have many different red colors. ‘Cause I think that all include red, and as right red as better looks other colors. I noticed that sometimes it is really difficult to get that right combination of red colors. Red is one of the colors which is difficult to repeat on canvas the one u see in reality.

“Russian Green” also cool color, I used it in shadows, and mix with red to get deep dark color. Like to use with ultramorine when make the dark parts of glass.

White could be 3 types of white Titanium, Zinc and Alkyd. Alkyd as I know the best, ’cause has the best time of drying up. Zinc the one who reflect the light inside, but has the most long time to be dried up. I use Titanium, in surrealistic paintings and in ones i need it was ready quickly. I never used Alkyd one. Zinc I use in copies and sometimes in portraits. or sometimes when don’t have another white color.

Different purple colors, well i use them usually not mixed i shadows like such purple reflection. Sometime mix, but they are usually dissolve in another color too much.

These Naples colors are cool for skins. And for different light moments of paintings.

Turquoise and Chrome-Cobalt, Master Class one is natural, but a bit dark color. And a bit dirty. Turquoise looks very real though imitation.

I also use different yellows. That also gives many different colors of other colors, like of green, of orange, and etc.

So that is most important colors I use in my paintings.

Newest-Latest Painting – Selfportrait

Newest-Latest Painting – Selfportrait

So today I finally began this my new selfportrait. Though few times was gonna stop myself at the morning and begin next week. Well I had few reasons to change my decision.?
First of all I awoke a bit later in 9.20, and had breakfast till 10.30 reading emails, and bible(I usually read 1 chapter in day and usually find there some answer of what i m thinking ). Then I thought too much time I lost ’cause awoke later and still need to wash hair & to put it in order. Then I said well but I wanted to paint today and I will do it, nothing will stop me.
Second I finally put myself in order spent just 15 mnutes and was ok… But I had no time all week to go to order me new contact glasses. My ones had a problem and I do not use them, only in cases if i need to make some photos and I need to see and be without usual glasses. Because of my ones are old, protein pimples appeaed on the out surface of them. So I can support many things but that is very difficult to stand when smth is itching your eyes when you blink. Well anyway I was obsessed of idea of this new painting so I decided I will begin ANYWAY, as I said before, nothing will stop me!

Third reason when I was already about to leave idea of panting today is when I was puting this big canvas 110 x 80 cm to tripod… I needed somebody to help me ’cause tripod doesn’t want to stand while I puting canvas. It all the time fell LOL, opened its legs… Well after it fell 3 or 4 times I was really angry, plus contact glasses hurt my eyes, this F!!cking tripod is falling and falling. I just scream to my poor tripod, name it who it is ( lol in russian, ’cause in that language such words are more powerfull xD… well I made it soo loud even my favorite noisy neighbours became silent, probably didn’t understand my words, decided that I was angry at them…) Anyway I got calm understanding that this poor not alive thing – tripod understood that I want to paint today and it must help me. So after all those words it stood well as I needed it and didn’t fall more.
So well finally I began it… Even though I had no so much time ’cause of eyes… But anyway I got some result for today, And here I am publishing it…..

About Nothing & Everythin Surrounding Me

About Nothing & Everythin Surrounding Me

Ok I m guessing people wanna know what means this my most recent work…
How did it appear…
And why i decided to work on it…

When you read a name it said you something… Work was about nothing. I wanted to make a work and to test myself in making new work. Before I’ve been doing this work I felt like I lost my gift and can’t create anything… Like all works I am doing now are wrong. Because I realy wanted to return my normal natural condition when I am painting… Usually I paint and esting, leing me be forgoten inside the unreal world of my imagination… But for a while I was like I can’t be completely drowned inside it. Reason of – why I painted all objects floating is next…?I have like hunged up condition regarding many things in my life, & ?in this period in generally about my painting. Like it isn’t NO, neither – YES.
Well so first I just simply tried to paint smth without any special idea… Then process became interested for me and meanwhile I painted I understood more and more that is all about me.?
While you are looking at this painting you can get feeling how it is possible to watch the reality through the imagined surreality…
Well I suppose I can leave explanations about twitter logo on a mug… ?( Yeah, yeah, yeah I am twitting while I am painting…)?
