An original Desert Dunes original painting. Huge sand dunes, a few green trees, dry grass and a distant mountain range. Very loosely based on a random photo from a random book. If I remember correctly, the location is somewhere in Central Asia. Just a window in another world (warm and peaceful this time) somewhere far, far away…

The paper size is about 14.5 x 11 inches (37 x 28 cm). To the shop

Sometime they say there are two types of intelligence: ours and a collective one, the ants intelligence. I don’t think we are so different. Our personalities divide us into workers, soldiers and much more. If somebody just can’t understand somebody else, it may be that they are different kinds of ants…

Two more drawings. First one (my favorite) has been sold, the second one I’ve just put on sale on Ebay.
Two attempts to illustrate the first scene from my book “The Return” in Russian. I am working on this series of illustrations first creating 3D models of my characters, props and landscape, then drawing everything “traditional” way, by hand.

I’ve managed to do a bit of sketching today (apart from shopping, bread- and yogurt-making and other cooking, taking kids to school and back). I was trying to capture what’s left of golden leaves on silver birches, oaks and hazelnut trees.

Also I’m packing and sending away an acrylic painting I’ve sold recently. It features Thai houses and was based on a photo I took from a taxi window on Phuket Island many years ago.
(Sometime if I don’t write down what I actually did today, I feel like time slipped through my fingers).

Here’s another picture from my Newtown, Powys, Wales. I did it sitting by the river Hafren (Severn), in this September. The colours of fall are more muted in Britain than in Virginia, Vladivostok or Moscow, but it is still the most beautiful time of the year – in my opinion. The combination of golden brown leaves and emerald green grass is stunning.

The painting is available from Etsy:

I watched a program yesterday on Newsnight Review
http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/newsnight/

I think the animal rights people should opt out of the National Health Service and stop using all medicines which were developed using tests on animals (and that should be marked on the packaging). That would be really honest. Scientists don’t want to torture animals. They want to save human lives, that, in my opinion, is higher priority than animal welfare. Of course, torturing is bad. Even if kids are torturing a dolly it is bad because the crime is in the mind.

No good scientist would want to make animals suffer unnecessary. Do animals suffer? I think, C.S. Lewis wrote that if you can’t understand “I am (suffering)” you can’t really suffer, as humans do. Well, that’s a point of view. I often think that cats and dogs are suffering living in cities and towns and really should be kept only at the countryside where they don’t get run over by cars so often & don’t stay in little dirty pens all the time, they have good natural supply of herbs & maybe allowed to hunt (they are hunters after all!), plus can run as much as they want.

Who is really an animal torturers, in my opinion, its creators of wild nature films & programs, who watch and film animals (especially little ones!) suffer and do nothing about this for the sake of “nice” picture. The duty of a human being is to help animals. Obviously we can’t stop all the animals hurting each other. But I sometime think, maybe we were meant to. Maybe in an ideal evil-free world all animals would be happy, domesticated and vegetarian (or scavengers)?

Instead of sabotaging research and by this harming lives (both animal and human), the animal rights activists should sponsor the research to gradually reduce and eliminate animal’s suffering. Full stop.
