Leicester Open Art Studio Tour continues with the work and studio of Olga Dorenko. Olga is a tiny mite of a woman, but I think a power house also. I would have liked to talk more to her about her background and art, but it was a busy day for her with lots of visitors. I did find out she is from Russia. Her art is detailed, skilled and imaginative. You can feel the fall leaves brilliant orange as they burst forth like the sun behind a barn or the swirl of the mountain winds as they sweep leaves into a funnel of fall frenzy. Her brush strokes are incredibly fine and smooth. I think her paintings are so finely painted it must take her a very long time for one painting. She had a two story studio, with exhibition space below and her painting studio above. The home was separate with a pool and gazebo. It looked quite wonderful. I can only imagine. I hope to learn more about Olga and her work in future shows. In the meantime I will share these photo's with you and link you with her website.
