Bullfinches are my favorite birds. I created this beautiful winter forest landscape with bullfinches, perched on snowy branches of rowan tree in memory of my walks in a snow-covered forest in Russia. I remember a fabulous feeling of surprise and delight when I unexpectedly spied the bright scarlet chests of the bullfinches, high in the branches of the trees; what a true winter mood they created at that moment. I don’t know why, but when I see these little birds my heart is filled with joy and I understand: “Here it is: real winter has arrived!”  This delightful wool painting would be a beautiful addition to your home, and also will make a great gift for anyone that loves birds, nature or the winter season.

To create my paintings, I use a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. All of my paintings are made from 100% Merino sheep’s wool by hand placing fine wool fibers layer by layer on the back of the picture frame, covered with glass and inserted into the frame. This process does not use any glue, needle, water, or paint.

Wool paintings carry special warmth and energy as wool is a natural, living material that keeps the mood and warmth of artist’s hands. Wool paintings have useful properties: they relax, soothe, and calm as the viewer pleasantly examines them. A photo of a wool painting does not convey all that can be felt upon close and detailed examination. By owning such painting, you can ask your guests the mysterious question of what material is it made of. They will generally be indecisive on if it is painted in oil or with watercolor, but decidedly delighted when they learn it is natural sheep’s fiber. Wool painting is always a stylish decoration and original gift. It creates an atmosphere of magic and fills your home with comfort.
