Elena Doronkina artist
Dostoyevsky said that beauty will save the world. I thought that was just a romantic idea, but now I know that when you see beauty in the simple things, you appreciate life more. With my art, I want to show that everything and everyone is beautiful. When I do portraits of children or animals I’m painting their souls. I believe that fine art is communication, and I want the viewer to feel what I’m feeling when I’m creating. When the viewer has a good feeling, that’s when I’m done with my painting.
