Storm is approaching! My oil painting

5개월 전

Were you afraid of a thunderstorm when you were little? You were frightened by thick rumbles of thunder, streams of water from the sky and bright flashes of lightning?


I guess I was the wrong child because the thunderstorm amused me. Always.

Every time the sky prepared to scare us all, I could not help laughing and ran to the window with all my legs to touch the first drops of rain with my hand and feel the wind in my hair.


I felt the incredible power and beauty of this moment. Perhaps my laughter was a reaction to this?

My grandmother really didn’t like it. She always followed me and led me away from the window. She always told me scary stories and legends about bad weather.


She said that a thunderstorm is the wrath of the god of heaven and that it is better not to catch his eye. If he sees that someone is happy, then he can "punish" this person. Hence all the cases when lightning hit people and they died.

To be honest, I was scared and curious at the same time.


This picture is the very beginning of a thunderstorm. The calm before the storm when it becomes very quiet around. No sound of trees or birds is heard.

The world freezes for a second, then burst into a deafening groan.

Thanks so much for the advice! I will try it next time!

You know, I've been following your art for a bit even though I never really leave a comment, because I'm not that good at commenting art beyond "great" or "amazing".

But I have to say, the more I see your paintings, the more I realize there's something about my own personality that you manage to speak to in a very specific way. I don't know if it's my fascination with nature, the idea of staring in awe at the natural world and feeling small in front of it, or if it's just the way you use colors and shapes that makes me feel at peace in a much more abstract way. At any rate, great work, I love it.


Wow! Perhaps these are the most significant words for me from another person in recent times.
What you have described now - the feeling that you are small, and the world is huge and majestic - this is just the very thing that I feel and try to convey when I paint pictures about nature! It is so amazing that our thoughts came together.
I never put myself or anyone else at the forefront. I am talking about people. We are only travelers who contemplate this world.
Everything around is abstract and ambivalent, to be honest. On the one hand, we are very small and weak on the scale of our being, but on the other, we are incredibly strong. The same can be said of the world. Today it is great, and tomorrow it is fragile, like an autumn leaf. Isn't this amazing?


It is! I'm glad I read the intentions behind your art correctly :)
As someone who has lived in a big city all his life, that kind of contact with nature is something that I can't experience very often - but when I do, I always feel like it is something that's missing from my everyday life. And yep, I see your point about strength and fragility. I just feel than, when it comes to the environment, we're using that strength the wrong way - but this is a story for another time.
Anyway, keep making awesome (as in "full of awe") art :)

Radiant . This reminds me of the sky during a thunderstorm we had last night. The thunder was quite loud and made my cats burrow under my blankets to hide.


Haha) I understand you perfectly)) My dog ​​also runs to me under the covers with all his legs, and then quietly growls at the peals of thunder!
It sounds funny, but I don’t think your cats had a light night!
Thunderstorm is an amazing phenomenon, but sometimes frightening)
