Artist Statement
“Nearing the end of the day I visited Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, a regional wonder, established in 1398. Located near my birth town Zvenigorod, this historic landmark stands proud on a hill which overlook broad sunny valleys and ancient Slavic forests. Moscow River flows just south from the monastery stronghold allowing this holy site to serve as both a defensive military picket and a point of pilgrimage.

As I set up my French easel and began painting, daily worship was near its end. Priests and believers rushed to finish their prayers and duties for the day. I believe I went unnoticed as I chased the light and captured antiquity.”
