The natural environment of Russia, my home country, is truly diverse and unique. I created this country painting to illustrate Russia’s character and habitat by expressing a sense of its enormous width and the vastness of the nation’s countryside.
The wool painting “Motherland” evokes fond memories of my childhood, when I visited my grandmother’s summer home in the country. The range of colors and the texture of the wool used in the summer landscape allow my recollections to come alive for others to enjoy. In the painting, some blue color remains in the corner of the sky, but the center is beginning to turn pinkish-purple with the summer sunset, and the green forest in the background is starting to darken toward its evening colors. The ripening wheat in the golden field in the center of the picture remains bright with the last of the sun’s rays. The country farmhouses are a dazzling white color, and always stay this way until the sun fully sets. In the grassy green foreground of the picture, cheerful red poppies are scattered from edge-to-edge, and their brilliant blooms repeat the bright color on the rooftops of the country farmhouses.
My imaginative creation “Motherland” is certain to draw the attention of your guests and will make a beautiful addition to your home’s décor. It would also make a great gift for anyone that loves nature and summer landscape paintings.
This handmade wool painting is fashioned from 100% sheep’s wool. It is nicely framed and covered with a glass to protect its surface and secure the individual wool fibers.
Please contact me if you are interested in having a unique wool painting created especially for you. I would love to take your dream and fashion it into a painting for your enjoyment or as a one-of-a-kind gift for friends or family.
