Friends, I'm happy to welcome you to my ArtHive page!
My name is Petelin Alexander.
I haven't parted with paints and brushes for more than 10 years. I used to work mostly with acrylics, painting miniatures. I have been painting in oil for more than seven years.
The works presented here are mostly done with a brushstroke in the impasto technique.

What do I want to tell you with my pictures?
With my paintings I try to draw viewers' attention to the beauty of the world around us.
Communicating with nature allows us to come back to ourselves, to recover when we are exhausted, gives us an endless source of inspiration to live and create.
One day I heard: "Notice life!" and I wondered about the meaning of those words.
What does this mean to me personally?
Look around, notice the changing seasons and everything that goes along with it.
Don't miss the sunrise or sunset, try to see their magical colors.
Spring has come: notice how the grass is growing, how the flowers are opening.
Notice when the leaves on the trees are blooming.
Remember this when they turn yellow and fade in the fall...

All the paintings presented here are my own works of authorship, made with oil paints on canvas in a single copy.
How to choose a picture? Very simple!
Choose something that appeals to you! Listen to yourself, find something that resonates with you! Even if you are buying a painting as a present, listen to yourself. So if you buy a present, you'll give your sincere emotions to the person you love and share your best feelings with him or her. Isn't that the true meaning of a gift?

If you have doubts about the choice - write to me, and I'll be happy to answer all your questions.
