Sketching in the Country

Now, architecture.
Father's eyes are getting worse every day. He was completely caught 2009 summer by the idea to construct this small barbeque place (summerhouse?) with his own hands with only little help of his friend. He was proud to show us that he could do it, that his eyes were very good. That time his left eye was blind and his right eye was 40% functional. Dad, I am sure you'd like this sketch if you could see it.


  1. Beautiful, fresh, cheerful, an excellent sketch!!

    a hug!

  2. It is a beautiful painting, Irina, a wonderful tribute to your father's summerhouse! I'm sure he would like it very much.

  3. Well done; I really like the additional ink lines - they make it so clean looking. So sorry about your father's eyesight, but how wonderful that he built this to prove he still could do it :)

  4. It's wonderful that you painted this for posterity. Now your ancestors will not only be able to see what an accomplished painter you are but also what your father could do. A nice tribute to your father.

  5. what a fine picture and touching post!

  7. Beautiful work Irina. I would love to sit on that bench...your father too, I'm sure.
    Your idea of a sketchbook is splendid, it will slowly become a work of art.

  8. Irina, his work is beautiful, too beautiful are your words, I have no doubt that her father would want.
    The art recording overruns.
