Oil on linen,

I painted this oil painting in my Ukrainian studio before leaving Ukraine for Canada. It is a night scene of love and gentleness during the cold Ukrainian winter. Leafless trees are depicted on the stunning multilayered deep blue background. The scene is lightened only with two street lamps that create an atmosphere of intimacy and mystery.
The oil painting is multilayered and pastous as most of my oil paintings are. To create this beautiful piece, I was using Renaissance painterly technique, which is an application of several layers of oil paint, along Italian technique impasto to create the stunning thick and pastous texture.

I painted this oil painting especially for my solo exhibition “Love Forever”. This painting is very personal and intimate for me. The artwork is filled with love and vibrant colours. It’s multilayered, pastors and very rich in texture.
The main subject of the painting is love, which is one of the most important things in the world. You can see many paths in the painting. Each of the paths is a search of love in our lives. We are taking different roads in life. Luckily, all of the paths we take eventually lead to love ❤️

Lost Lake.jpg

Lost Lake

Oil on canvas,

55.5 x 70.5 cm

I painted this oil painting after travelling to one of the mountain resorts in Whistler where I found the beautiful Lost lake. In our lives, we sometimes lose the connection with our inner world. The painting was created as an allegory of losing and finding ourselves in life.
The oil painting is full of sumptuous and vibrant colours. It is pastors and multilayered with brushstrokes loaded with oil paint. The texture of the painting is rich and thick as I was using Italian technique impasto to create this beautiful piece.

This painting is a conceptualized winter view out of my studio window. The dog in the middle of the painting is named Daizy.
The different paths are allegories of our paths in life. Everybody is experiencing life differently. The only thing that always remains constant for all of us is love; it is the most important thing in the world. We all are taking different paths in life, sometimes through wind and snow, through challenges and struggles. Luckily, all of the paths we take eventually lead to love. ❤️

Loving Winter Time

Oil on linen,

45 x 35 cm

I painted this oil painting “Loving Winter Time” two days before leaving Ukraine. I was looking at the street out of the Ukrainian studio I was leaving. It was a cold Ukrainian winter. Leafless trees were bending under the weight of the heavy snow. Parked cars were almost swamped with the perpetual snow. But something in that scene was so heart-warming that I just felt I had to paint that moment.

Pond at Olympic Village

Oil on canvas,

31 x  31 cm

I painted this beautiful oil painting when I was living in the Olympic Village in Vancouver. This pond was “a small island of nature in the city” for me, and I really enjoyed it.
“Pond at Olympic Village” is full of sumptuous and vivid colours. I was using an Italian technique impasto to create this beautiful piece. The painting is multilayer and pastous with a rich and thick texture.

In the painting, you can see different roads which are allegories of our paths in life. Everybody is experiencing life differently. The only thing that always stays in common for all of us is love which is the most important thing in the world. We all are taking different roads in life. Luckily, all of the roads we take eventually meet the love ❤️  

Blue Eden (1).jpg

Blue Eden

Oil on linen,

100 x 100 cm

I painted this oil painting “Blue Eden” after travelling to Venice where I was a part of an international art project “Passagio in Laguna”. I love Italy a lot and especially in Venice. Many Old Masters came from Venetian School of painting, like Titian whom I admire. When having my art exhibitions in Venice or doing my Plein-airs, I always get inspired and find a new subject for my oil paintings.
For me, Venice is also a place of romance. You always see a lot of happy couples in gondolas cruising Venetian canals. In my oil painting “Eden”, I explore the love, Eva and Adam theme, female and male energy that try to merge in one whole. The painting is multilayered with loaded brushstrokes of oil paint which creates an illusion of Italian fresco.

Melting Snow.jpg

Melting snow

Oil on linen,

The painting is full of sumptuous colours. I was applying oil paint in several layers as many Renaissance Old Masters did to create an illusion of depth. I also combined the Renaissance painterly approach with the Italian technique impasto to create a thick and rich texture.

Different

Oil on linen,

75 x 85 cm

I was presenting my home country Ukraine at Florence Biennale with this oil painting "Different". The main subject is poppy flowers with one of them being blue. The blue poppy flower sits on the foreground but starts to dissolve in the grass as the voice of other red flowers is stronger than his own. The painting is very colourful and pastous. It speaks about identity and individuality in our society, and how it can be sometimes challenging to be different from others.

Gentle Love.jpg

Gentle Love

Oil on linen,

130 x 70 cm

The painting is a manifestation of love and spiritual harmony. I painted this oil painting while being deeply in love (and I still am ). “Gentle Love” is an imaginary landscape, the world of dreams and fantasy that try to join the everyday rational world. Two trees-lovers are interlocking their branches in the most tender way, creating oneness while still preserving their own identity.

The oil painting “Gentle Love” was published in Ukrainian newspaper “Den” with the article about my artworks and my exhibitions. The article was written by art historian Elena Shapiro. Here is a small extract from her article: ”It is a rare occasion in our time to experience exhibitions like Anastasia’s, exhibitions that are able to revive the viewer to optimism and cheerfulness, heal and revive the damaged structures of our souls”.

Oil on canvas,

I painted this multilayer oil painting at one of the quiet coves of Sechelt at Sunshine Coast. I was amazed at the small and peaceful home located on one of the hills and just could not resist painting it.

The oil painting is very colourful and pastous with the thick application of oil paint. It features beautiful West Coast scenes. The painting is very peaceful and calming.

Happy Sahara Memories.jpg

Happy Sahara Memories

Oil on canvas,

31 x 31 cm

This oil painting is reminiscent of my trip to the Sahara Desert where I was lucky to enjoy gorgeous views, see sunrises and sandy sunsets. It was a special experience for me. And with all the restrictions in place and being unable to travel now, I decided to create this piece for you out of my memories.
In this oil painting, I combined the Renaissance painterly approach with the Italian technique impasto to create this beautiful piece. The painting is multilayered and pastous. It has a thick and rich texture, full of vibrant and vivid colours.  

False Creek, Being Grateful.jpg

False Creek, Being Grateful

Oil on canvas,

27 x 35 cm

I was using Renaissance painterly approach along with Italian technique impasto to create this stunning multilayer oil painting. It has a very thick and rich texture. I painted five layers of oil paintings one on top of another to achieve a remarkable depth and an incredible variety of vivid and sumptuous colours.

I feel very grateful for being able to live and work in my beautiful city right next to the inlet of the Pacific Ocean. I feel very grateful to enjoy this beautiful scenery and want to share this beauty with you through my work.

Velvet Paths.jpg

Velvet Paths

Oil on canvas,

76 x 101 cm

I’ve just finished this beautiful multilayer oil painting. The painting is very pastous with an application of several layers of oil paint and full of sumptuous and vivid colours.

As I was doing my Plein-airs at Iona Beach in Richmond, Canada this year, I fell in love with one of the beautiful fields there. So, I decide to paint that field and create this beautiful painting as an allegory of our paths in life. We make many decisions every day and then move in different directions. Luckily, all paths we take eventually lead to love. ❤️

A Sunny Dream of the Forest Full of Birc

A Sunny Dream of the Forest Full of Birches

Oil on canvas,

76  x 101 cm

In methodology, birches are symbolic of self-discovery and an inner expansion which, I think, is an important element of our growth. Birches remind us to reconnect with our childlike sense of wonder and innocence. “A Sunny Dream of the Forest Full of Birches” is reminiscent of my childhood and adolescence when I spend most of my days in nature.

The oil painting is filled with vibrant and sumptuous colours. It is multilayer and pastous, as I was painting three different layers of oil paintings one on top of another. So that the incredible depth and richness of texture was successfully achieved.
