Visiting my cousin one Sunday afternoon, her garden was invaded by her flock of spoilt hens and cockerels. I think they knew I was taking pictures. A hen paused briefly to look at us ... or perhaps just to strike a pose. In any event, very paintable!
I just loved the way that the light illuminated a curious chicken feathers' with a bright glow.
A lively expressive painting of a white chicken, this gives the Artwork a fresh and immediate style.
Hometown: Chisinau, Moldova

My name is Natasha Sokolnikova (Natalia Socolnicova) and I am a professional artist.
I graduated from the School of Fine Arts “Alexei Schiusev”, Chisinau (Republic of Moldova) with the highest score and further
The University of Humanitarian Knowledge. Now I live and work in Munich, Germany.
One of my greatest strengths as an artist is the combination of classical education and my own vision of the surrounding world. I am a fan of travelling and it gives me chance to acknowledge with a widest range of different cultures. That experience also helps to understand art trends nowadays.
The theme of love, female identity, the emotional power of color, visual insight attract my way in art. I love flowers and it seems to me female soul lives in them, who cannot speak, but mentally communicates with the one who stopped his eyes on them.
The theme of animalism in my works based on the silent relationship between people and creatures of nature. Painting and drawing lead me to a special unique state, as if you leave your own body and observe yourself from the side, the physical world with its coordinate system of space and time ceases to exist. Most of all I love the moment when a mystical transformation takes place in the canvas and I understand that it
is no longer just a technical work, but a creature that radiates its own energy and has the right to life.
I really want to find a home for such paintings, where they will interact with its owners. If I fell happiness due that process I should share it with other people.
There is another important reason why paintings have become an integral part of me: there was a huge period in my life when I
did not paint. Unfortunately, my personal tragedy prompted me to create, consciously and with a splash of unspent love, admiration for the universe, and diverse range of feelings. Therefore, I am very anxious about my works. It is important for me that they live outside my personal space. They are my physical footprint on earth.
I successfully sell my works offline and through social media, but now I want to do it online.
