Two of my artworks will be exhibited at Hafren theater, Newtown, during the “Revelation” exhibition held from 28th November 2011 till 27th January 2012.

Two works for this exhibition represent 1) a way which could reveal to a human being some truth about him/herself and (“17th Face, Acrylic, GBP 70

and 2) a way in which humanity discovers the truth about the world surrounding it (Survey, Acrylic, SOLD).

Two figures in spacesuits watching a sunset over the hills, mountains, canyons, dunes and plains of Mars. An illustration for an unfinished chapter in my Russian sci-fi novel ( The text on the painting is from my Martian poem ( As the picture has silver and gold paint it is useful to see it under different angles:

The painting is done with acrylic paint and ink, in a hardboard.

On Friday Christmas lights have been switched on in Newtown. Its one of the biggest events in the town but as usual you only can find out about it if you you talk to people: there wasn’t any announcements on streets (no, sorry, there was one – outside the town, for car drivers). The official town’s website

haven’t been updated since September the first (NEWS! its even worse for local school websites) and so on. Well we asked some men installing merry-go-round and ended up coming 2 hours yearly on freezing-cold night. BUT we managed to see the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle passing above as two very bright stars (soon after they separated).
Traditional light-switching speech by our mayor was aimed against people trying to save electricity (she called them Scrooge). There also is lot of controversy about switching 2/3 of street light in the Powys county. Some people think it will help criminals (not that there are many of them here, thank goodness for that!). I think its more difficult for thieves to use torches than for local residents as they (criminals) don’t really want to be spotted.
Anyway we had a nice firework display and kids got two more lightsabers (I know I complained of too many toys at home, but it so difficult for me to say NO to kids).
On Saturday we visited Ten Drawings by Leonardo da Vinci and Mapping the Welsh Group at 60 exhibitions. For my daughter, who likes art generally, famous Leonardo’s works didn’t mean nearly as much as some of symbolist contemporary works from the second exhibition. I literally couldn’t pull her away from them when we had to go.
We also seen wonderful mirage (distant mountains on the other side of the huge bay looked much closer, hovering over the sea) and sunset with myriads of starlings flying around the pier in Aberystwyth.
