I tried painting with palette knife years ago, but only when I started using this technique again I have understood that this style is definitely mine.

Why do I paint nature? I can’t say for sure… I also would like to try painting portraits. However, impressionism is closer to me. Although anything could be painted in that style, nature and is still my favorite line. I don’t want to rush things, I let them take their normal course. At present, I am happy to share my mood thought painted nature and I am more than happy to know that there are people who like that.

I am very grateful to higher powers for giving me chance to find myself in life. Some time ago, I was sure that painting is in the past. But now that I have started again, I can’t stop and long breaks damp my spirits.

This review is not mention to offend anyone, this review is from my personal opinion taste and knowledge. 
First of all let me congratulate you on the amazing job done.

I looked at all your paintings very carefully before making this review for you, it was an amazing experience.
I have to say as that expressionism is my favorite genre of paint and my favorite tool is the palette-knife. So i had to take apart the love i have for this kind of art and try to give an objective review of you as an artist.
The first thing i noticed is your originality its not common to see a painter use two techniques so elegantly, on a not so easy genre of art where you have to express the feeling of the subject but keeping it as true as possible to the nature or subject.

I have to split your technique apart because of the two different tools you use, but nevertheless they blend so well in one dance of colors.

Your brushes are very delicate just enough to show the smoothness of the sky or clouds.
However you take your time to not just show how delicate or smooth are things but you love everything you see, everything your eyes catches.

The Spatula (palette-knife) so sharp so strong and different form the brushes is like an other side of you a strong side a sharp side, it's like after loving your painting, after giving your heart to it you just take your knife and start sadistically hitting the canvas so precisely you give another life to it, your life.
If I have to rate your work I cannot find the perfect scale because is so different and personal i could not find another one like it.


I can write more and more about you as a painter or your art, but i think it's enough i want others to enjoy your work and have the journey i had admiring your work.

I hope you keep up the good work and create more and more masterpieces. 

As I said in the beginning of this review this is not intended to offend the artist or anyone else.
