Welcome you all who are visiting these pages.
My name is Maya, I am an artist's widow. My husband passed away due to serious complications of his juvenile diabetes.
He was extremely talented since childhood, but communists didn't allow him to study art due to his father (whom their killed) as he was "unsuitable", being in their book a "capitalist." Anyway, here in the United States, he won several competitions even in some art categories, which he never intended to pursue.
We came to this country as political refugees, became citizens and lived here for a majority of our adult lives.
Because I do not have anyone to leave his work to as an inheritance and I was hit heavily with payments for his hospital stay and related medical procedures (he couldn't be insured for a pre-existing condition) I am offering some of his work to the public.
Original oils I post here are real originals and there were never made prints of these.
Also in stages, I am presenting his pencil drawings, which include various topics, well-known personalities, sci-fi, history, religion, fantasy, etc. Those were never intended to be sold, but I think they might please anyone who understands real art and talent. These are very nice to either group (same subject) in various positions, place in "personal" rooms, like a man/woman room, business place, for ex. sport facility, gun shop, etc...depending on content. Drawings are made on paper cardboards in various thickness, depending mostly on size, so it stays firm, lighter paperboards are to be covered w/firm plastic (I might include it) and simply pasted on the wall with a see-through tape. No need to frame such.
Thank you very much for visiting and I do hope you would find here something to your liking. You might offer your amount to purchase in some cases. ...
I just would like to add that realistic drawings and paintings are very demanding on time. It takes endless hours to finish such a work. In some oils, (such as Jesus) my husband used so-called "layering" a method Leonardo da Vinci painted Mona Lisa, which took him 7 years to finish.
