Аrt for some people is a hobby, for others – a profession or possibly something else. For me it is a part of life, which gives me pleasure as a hobby and self-affirmation as a profession. Whenever some piece of work is a success, I feel so uplifted and proud, that it can be compared with a feeling a person might have after being promoted. Process of creation is also an opportunity to share one’s thoughts, topics, outlooks, to talk about the things that worry, interest and move. Apart from that, making a painting, a drawing or a sculpture is a way of distracting from routine life problems. This feeling can be compared with a trip, when all trivial stuff is left behind, and something new, unknown, exciting is waiting for you. And you can find it in ordinary things, activities, people. Art provides an opportunity to see usual things in a completely different way. Based on the image, an artist adds some personal vision, applying feelings and emotions to the artwork, pulling the spectators in. And the last but not least, it’s so great to feel oneself a creator!
