Divertimento #11: Double

I always love trips to France. Every time we travel there we discover new treasures. Typical colors of French countryside were inspiration for this painting.

You can see the traditional blue-and- yellow colors everywhere in Provençal; on the fabric, on the dishes, on the cosmetics, on the houses, on the clothing even on the pastries. The colors are everywhere – golden sunflower hue and cerulean blue hues. Wonderful combination!

Divertimento #10: Bike

This is one of the funny Divertimentos inspired by my resent trip to one of the most charming cities in the world – Jerusalem.

There are 30 fixed bikes attached to various instruments and mechanisms on the Safra square in front of the Jerusalem City Hall.  The bikes are part of the interactive art installation “Full Gas in Neutral” designed and constructed by Anat and Ilan Berman. Each bike “does” something different; when you start pedaling the bike you set the mechanism in motion. Some There are drums attached, which pound when the rider cycles; others play music from a gramophone; some have a desk lamp which lights up and sways gently from side to side; still others have speedometers and fans. It is a great fun!

Divertimento #9: Marine Life

I think that Australia is my most favorite trip. This place is like a Paradise. Definitely must see destination! Australia’s landscapes are incredibly diverse. They include a wide variety of habitats for its wildlife, including tropical rainforests, deserts, rivers, mountain ranges and of course marine environments which has been inspiration for this painting.

The Great Barrier Reef is the breathtaking beauty. It is the largest coral reef ecosystem on earth – stretches for more than 1200 miles along the Queensland coastline. Luckily for me it is also one of the world’s most accessible reefs. Since I wouldn’t scuba dive I enjoyed an excellent snorkeling.

Divertimento #8: Rainforest

It is obvious that I was so impressed and touched by the natural beauty of Costa Rica, that I created the whole series of paintings related to this amazing place. This Divertimento is one of them.

Costa Rica’s Tropical Rainforests are often referred to as “jewels of the earth.” They are home to two-thirds of all living animal and plant species on the planet. If you pay attention you will see animals hidden everywhere! Just like these White-Faced Capuchin Monkey.
