I have a lovely Russian Friend who is a locally known contemporary artist called Veronika Leontyeva. Veronika regularly has art shows in the Peterborough area and this evening she has given me an oil painting as a gift, and I feel very humbled to be given so special a gift. I find her work is very atmospheric and I love her use of colour; Veronika is not afraid to use colour and I like the way she uses several colours to define depth and definition. It also makes her pictures vibrant and alive.
The picture she has given to me this evening is on the fourth row down second in from the left next to the Irises and is called "The Lonely Fisherman".
I am chuffed to bits. Thank you so much Veronika. It will be treasured.
