self-portrait with a cat

Sometimes I repaint details, or faces again and again. Like in this little portrait. First the head was too big, then not the right face expression, and too looks like me. Yes, it is a self portrait, and supposed to look like me, but too boring — if my cat can look like a leopard, I also can be somebody else)

Olympia’s weekend (after Manet)

Last weeks I was working on my new painting «Olympia’s weekend».
http://lenarevenko.com/blog/files/blog_274.jpg

It is homage to Manet’s «Olympia» famous painting, but also to amazing moving sculpture by Paul Spooner. I saw it a few years ago in automata’s exhibition, and was absolutely charmed. The black lady became an egyptian god Anubis, and you can see how annoyed Olympia is breathing heavily, but shows no attention to him.


Olympia by Paul Spooner.

This is the oryginal Olympia by Manet, (c. 1863):
