Untitled

Larisa Samarina, adult

Volgograd, Russia



Editors Note: This painting addressees the ecological impact that the dam at Volshki has had on the Volga River. Because of the tempeture increase in the Volga River (5 degrees since the dam’s creation) the population of the sturgeon is almost extinct. their spawning was greatly curtailed because of this increase. The three figures are shown with empty plates to symbolize that the sturgeon is all but gone. the fire in the front of the painting depicts a forest fire that took place the summer of our visit That took out many acres of hardwood trees.

Still Life

Sergei Krylov, adult

Volgograd, Russia



This is a simple half a glass of water. no one thinks about a half a glass of water but someday this half a glass could save your life.


Editors Note: When we visited Sergie in his studio he was working on aseries of painting called “The loneliness of Everyday Objects”. The idea was to paint a new still life every day and imbue the work with personal feeling so that the still lives become a sort of diary of his life. I was amazed at how Sergie integrated the river painting in with the series he was working on.

Beauty Will Save The World

Helen Orlova, adult

Volgograd, Russia



This painting by Helen Orlova reflects the pristine beauty of certain places alon the banks of the Volga River. Some spots on the river are restricted to keep people from trodding on the sensitive flora and fauna. We where lucky enough to visit one of these restriceted areas with a professor from the ecological institute. The beach we went to had a field of wild flowers which i am reminded of when i study this painting.
