This painting of a seagull was a study I did on the shape, shading and texture. Summer and seagulls always go together and I want to paint more of them in the future. I have to say i have had my angry moments with those birds too, if you have them where you come from, you know what I'm talking about. For some time, we worked as managers for a estate on a island in Helsinki. The seagulls desided to nest there. These birds are protected in Finland, but the land was owned by Korea, and the residents wanted to get rid of the nest. BIt of a dilemma!! Once they had nested and left the nest, we got rid of the nests they and built on our roof. But for the early summer they were like any teenagers on the yard...looked like they were throwing parties when mom and dad were not at home! I guess all teenagers are the same!!


Size:17x25aproximately Price:50e,400RMB, 65$

Hello... I Am Maria


A little about me

 Artist painter Maria Melenchuk I was born in Finland, in the city of Lappeenranta - city full of lakes and forrests. Growing up I spent most of my time going between home and seeing uncles and auntie, grandmother and great auntie. This is how I learned to drink coffee at a very early age - I really miss the way my great auntie made a cup of "kohvi"!!.Read more About me
