Art and music are my passions. Being in the army there’s hardly any time for these things that one loves from the heart. For me it is a beautiful opportunity to learn without any restrictions of time and geographic location. Being connected online is the only prerequisite. So I’m just here to learn and grow as an artist with all of you wonderful people. Thanks.

    Many artists will not want to paint exactly what they see in fact, probably won’t be able to unless aiming at photo-realism but it is very difficult to paint anything that cannot be seen properly.
