Some time ago I took some art class where I had to learn a few techniques on painting. I think that I was pretty talented and I had a great time applying new skills to my talent. As a result I had a few great paintings. BTW, later I will post some childhood drawings that I have found among my stuff.
First painting is a lady abstract. Very interesting, because I had to do abstract painting where the shapes have matter but the details are omitted.


Next painting I had to learn how to use one specific type of oil based paint. I didn’t know what to come up with so, as the result of my contemplation I came up with the painting entitled “Light House”. This was hard. But what I liked about it is the depth and a little of 3-d effect that you can see and feel when you hold the painting close enough to yourself.


I thought that the “Light House” was the hardest one to do, but I think that dealing with water paint can be as hard as well. When I was painting “Apples” I had to be careful not to have all my apples merge into each other. Because of different colors but the same type of paint that was used, I had to control my next steps when other colors were added.


In the next painting I had to come up with the logo that has my name hidden in it. Although I didn’t completely hide my name in the logo, partial parts of my name were perfectly hidden in this logo. Try to find them (Hint: Vita Ma)


Dealing with Chalk pastel, charcoal, conticren etc was hard as well when I was painting my next image “Circles”. The difficulty was to keep the rest of the paper clean, which I, obviously, failed to do.


Drawing abstract image “Balance” was not an easy task as well. Well, look at this image and see for yourself why I thought it was not an easy task to do.


My last painting was actually performed on the piece of rubber. First, I had to draw it on the paper and then I had to transfer my drawing from the paper to the rubber. Once I engraven my painting on the rubber, I used the rubber as a stamp. I dumped a few colors on the rubber and then put the stamp on the paper. As the result I have my painting “Flower”

b2ap3_thumbnail_vmpainting-flower_20131006-024923_1.jpgPlease share your paintings and ideas with me. Honestly I love art and wish I spent more time developing my skills as an artist (either painter, singer, or musician). But due to the lack of resources in my life, I was not able to fulfil my dreams. That’s why my dreams remained the dreams until today.

Originally I am from Ukraine. Came to the US in 2005 with $1 in my pocket. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2009, I graduated from Utah Valley University, with a computer science major. I have worked for an x-ray company as an Applications Engineer or also known as a Technical Sales Engineer for 9 years. In 2015 I have started a new career adventure with FOSS North America as a Regional Sales Manager. Currently I am pursuing my MBA degree from the University of Utah (2016). Outside of work, I like swimming, blogging, traveling, movies, spending time with my friends and listening to music. I am a personable, dynamic and earnest. So far I've traveled to Ukraine, Russia, Portugal, England, Croatia, USA (California, Chicago, Massachusetts, New York, Florida, and a few other states). My curiosity does not stop there, so I continue traveling for work and pleasure. One of my favorite quotes: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain I have written a little poem about me: I can be sweet, I can be mean, I can see things, and say what I mean, I can pretend but deep within me I'm always Vitaliy, and always have been. If you would like to learn more about me, please don't hesitate to contact me. Regards, Vitaliy
