Six Word Saturday ~ On My Road with Andrei Kushnir

Last year I was at a show by artist Andrei Kushnir at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. What struck me right away was the places he had painted (in this show) were places I had been. In fact one of his pictures was a view only a half a block from my house.

It was that picture that inspired me to try and recreate some of scenes. I shot a few of his pictures and I have been working to replicate them. I wish I had taken more pictures (of the paintings) but the idea came to me after the show and I was there on the last day.

One thing I noticed while working on this project is that a photo is often more accurate than a painting. Several times I would try to get the angle just right before concluding that the angle doesn’t exist except for in the painters eye. Another thing that creates a difference is the time that goes by. Things change, even in Strasburg Virginia.

I really enjoyed doing this and often the hunt was a story in itself. I plan to share them here so watch for these posts.

In the mean time you can learn more about the artist by visiting him here or watching him work on Youtube
