Lingering At Shenandoah University ~ 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. I’ve already blogged about that one, you can read it here.

The next one took me a few miles from the museum to Shenandoah University, where I found and learned about Sarah’s Glen.

While working on this project, I noticed 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. Some of these paintings were done as early as 2009 and the landscape’s have changed.

I am really enjoying this project. Often the hunt was a story in itself. I plan to share my results 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
