It is natural to wish to have a picture with which you feel affinity.
Write to the artist what picture you like, and you will get the information about the price of the picture.
Except the picture or instead of it you can always order a poster or the modern press on a canvas with the autograph of the author.
Everyone can afford such option of possession.
Reading is an essential part of Opuls' life. Many ideas from different sources not only guide and aid him on the artst's path, but also became akin to him :)
Leskov about Valaam, the story "Peacock":
"On Valaam any pilgrim submits to obedience, it is as a custom. <…> walks and observations here aren’t into account; but however I <…> managed to bypass in one night all island and to imprint forever in my memory a marvelous picture which wild rocks, dark natural boundaries and silent heritages of Russian Athos represent at a pale twilight of summer northern night.".
"Art is given to us not to die of truth.".
"The painting is the poetry which is seen, and the poetry is the painting which is heard.".
"Colouring is the painter indeed.".
"The painting is a whim.".
"Love painting, poets! Only to it, unique, it is allowed to Transfer changeable signs of Soul on a canvas".
"From year to year the painting becomes clearer, We address to it more often. <...> From year to year the painting becomes more necessary, All the rest escapes and flows. <...>only the painting inspires us hope...".
"... There is no magic, there is no miracle, the Art begins with simple, the wing line Is elementary!".
Valery Brucov. A sonnet to the form:
"There are thin ruled connections Between a flower contour and a flower smell. So the brilliant is invisible to us until it doesn’t revive under facets in a diamond.".
"The painting is a real life. In it the nature appears before soul without intermediaries, without covers, without conventions. The poetry is intangible. The music is intangible. The sculpture is relative. But the painting, especially in a landscape, is something real. Poets, musicians, sculptors, I don’t want to decrease your glory. Your destiny is also splendid. But it will be rendered to everyone on justice!".
"Colours are irritating and calming, shouting, arguing with each other and living tenderly one near another. In their struggle or the conformity also there is a colour influence on the person through feeling of a sight.".
"There are a lot of invisible forms and unheard sounds, a lot of wonderful combinations of both a word and light in the space; but the only one will transfer them who is able to see and to hear, only that who can catch only drawing line, only a word, harmony, who involves whole creation with him in our surprised world".
"The art isn’t a display of any mysterious idea, beauty, god as metaphysics say; it isn’t a game in which the person lets out surplus of the backlog of the energy as aesthetics-physiologists say; it isn’t a demonstration of emotions by external signs; it isn’t a manufacture of pleasant subjects, and the main thing it isn’t pleasure, but it is a means which is necessary for a life and for a movement to good of the particular person and the mankind and it is a communicative means which connects people in the same feeling.".
Chak Palanik. A diary:
"The artist’s task is to make an order from chaos. You collect details, look for the general line, organise. You give sense to the senseless facts. You spread out a puzzle from pieces of the world around. You mix and reorganise. You combine. You arrange. You screw together.".
Seve MacLane, the theorist of modern neoclassicism:
"The artist should realise his own role overcoming the egoistical subjectivity and start to search for aesthetic ideals in harmony with the Creator.".
"Love is a rustle of pink bushes and a jingle fire in veins.".
"If the person is not born a tsar it can be the Tsar if the person is an artist.".
"At first a string, then a cord, then a cable, then a chain, and in the end there is a hole!".
Pavel Petrovich Chistjakov:
"A technical skill is the language of an artist; develop it diligently till virtuosity. Without it you will never manage to tell people your dreams, your worries and the beauty you have seen.".
"Painting allows to see things in such way as they were once when they were looked at with love.".
"The glaze is a way from sketch to picturesqueness.".
"An ideal for a man is moonness, a level of culture and calmness.".
"The imagination is more important than knowledge.".
"Die only for the things which are worth living.".
"Don’t scare to strive for perfection you never reach it.".
Albert Camus, "Caligula":
"He said to me that the life isn’t easy, but there is religion, art, love which support us.".
"The culture is a thin apple peel over the heated chaos.".
"The art is a mirror reflecting the one who looks at oneself in it, but it isn’t life at all.".
Leonardo da Vinci:
"The painter who copies senselessly being guided by practice and judgment of an eye looks like a mirror which reflects all subjects opposed to it without understanding them.".
"Life is never wonderful; only its pictures in the cleared mirror of the art are fine.".
"The art isn’t a mirror, it is not obliged to reflect all indiscriminately".
"The art is the finest manifestation of the Godship in a man.".
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast:
""You can either buy clothes or buy pictures," she said. "It's that simple. No one who is not very rich can do both. Pay no attention to your clothes and no attention at all to the mode, and buy your clothes for comfort and durability, and you will have the clothes money to buy pictures." - Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast".
"A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing
A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
Of all the unhealthy and o'er-darkened ways
Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
From our dark spirits. Such the sun, the moon,
Trees old, and young, sprouting a shady boon
For simple sheep; and such are daffodils
With the green world they live in; and clear rills
That for themselves a cooling covert make
'Gainst the hot season; the mid-forest brake,
Rich with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms:
And such too is the grandeur of the dooms
We have imagined for the mighty dead;
All lovely tales that we have heard or read:
An endless fountain of immortal drink,
Pouring unto us from the heaven's brink.".
"I do not need any rich nature, nor the magnificent composition of any spectacular lighting, no miracles ... let me a dirty pool, but that it was the truth, poetry, and poetry can be all over that is the case of the artist. (Pavel Tretyakov in the letter A.G.Goravskiy)".
