Artists that inspire me: Elena Iwanowa

This week's artist is a bit of a mystery to me. I have found his art on Artodyssey, and that's all the information I can find about him. No website, no blog, nothing. I even doubt whether he is a male. Elena doesn't sound "male-ish" to me, does it? I found his work in some galleries, but all the text was in an Eastern European language that I don't understand. So I'll just let his art speak ...

He uses very strong colors. Always a favorite of mine ...

dreamy scenes

I like the contrast between the transparant layers and the opaque layers

beautiful beautiful background


While I love this composition and the colors, I am not so keen on his men with moustache. 
Wonder why that is ....


oh those vibrant colors! 


Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back on Friday with my (hopefully...) finished painting!
