Artwork by Larisa Bertok
If I ask myself who I am, the answer should always be an artist. I was dedicated to art even before I was actually doing it. But my life was bringing me to different places. Now I finally understand that if I want to be happy I have to follow my heart and to finish what I was meant to be.
As I remember I could never talk to people without a sketchbook. Everything that I say I have to draw it too.
Usually, I am going to sleep and I dream about paintings. Then I have to stand up and to draw in my sketchbook all the ideas that were coming… After that, the thing stops because I don’t have the knowledge to put it properly on canvas.
With choosing a different study, after my parents’ advice and moving to another country, there was no time for art. I was busy with the kids and I couldn’t afford myself to go back to school.
Now the children are bigger and I am…. older )) Maybe old enough to become a member of the Old Masters Academy… My wish is to learn all the old masters’ techniques so that I could create my own style and finally draw all the paintings that I have in mind.
So now I hope that somebody will hear my wish and help me a bit with reaching my dream.
