Stranger with a cigarette

Painting, 2018, 93×70 cm

Description of the artwork «Stranger with a cigarette»

This mysterious girl, whom I met in Tivoli, a small Italian town where the famous Villa d'Este is located, has the most piercing look.
After sightseeing, I wanted to eat pasta with white wine, and for dessert - juicy fruits. I went in search of an atmospheric restaurant and found what eventually turned into a picture - a bright heroine.
In one narrow street there were a couple of tables, at one of which a woman was smoking. Her look and gestures made me pay attention - I am interested in charismatic personalities, especially such! The woman spoke to me in Italian, which I do not know, but I fell under the magical influence of this person. It turned out that she was the owner of a small cafe, where two more girls worked - one of them spoke to me in Russian.
So, fed - divine! But I wanted to continue to watch the charismatic hostess, constantly smoking cigarettes. I ordered a bottle of white fruit.
I sit, drink wine and see how she turns into a mysterious person: she is wearing a veil through which an incredibly powerful look breaks through - yes, such a girl knows her worth. The moon accompanies her thoughts. Lips distract attention while she studies your soul with her own eyes, and believe me, you cannot hide something - the stranger already knows everything about you.
