"I started the series of sea works five years ago during a walk by the beach. Each artist wants to express the beauty of the sea, and many of them do it perfectly. However, I want to express the feelings and emotions I have when I enjoy the sea view. I’m a self-taught artist and don’t know the secrets of art. I just have paint, eyes and feelings. The sea gives me only 5-10 minutes to draw it on paper, and then it changes. When I manage to get the color of the sea and sky, I feel happiness. But I also admire it when I’m late, and the colors are not the same anymore. Completely different seas and skies appear in front of me, and this is truly incredible!"
