painter? I thought it was photography in the beginning! hehe.. very well done

WOW! undeniable genuis!!
thank you for the inspiration!!!!!!!!!

These are very realistic oil paintings. Beautiful work.

HOLY REALISM !!!!!! Your work is superb at first glance I assumed you were a photographer !

Oh, I almost forgot. All your new painting image links are broken. I was disappointed I wanted to see your new paintings.

Valeriy, my favorites are the mountains, islands, and rivers. I like the large vistas. I like how you establish a color tonality in each picture and use it. The mountain photos are grand. But I was glad I went to your website so I could see your paintings. You use a sqare format a lot.
