I am very fortunate to have my paintings currently being exhibited at Latgale Embassy, GORS, Rēzekne, from January 9 to February 22nd, 2018 in the beautiful Latgale region of Latvia.

The exhibition launched on January 9th, 2018, which marked a stepping stone in my career as an artist and was a wonderful way to begin the New Year!

The opening went well. It was a beautifully arranged evening and was attended by children, students, youth and seniors, a lovely mix. I had the opportunity to shake a lot of hands and meet a lot of people who truly appreciate the art.  And they seemed to really enjoy my paintings.

I want to start by saying thank you to the professional staff at GORS. I had the chance to work with these dedicated, professional, and friendly people. They graciously provided the careful transportation of my art pieces from Riga to Rēzekne.  The exhibit hall itself was outstanding.   GORS staff also provided beautifully designed and printed labels, posters, cards, and invitations.  The placement of the paintings was thoughtful and professional.

I want to thank GORS community (staff) for the incredible artist reception, where I had a whole evening for me to meet many old and new friends as they enjoyed my work.

I would love to thank all of my close friends for their continuous prayers and support. The truth is that being a freshman artist is a little bit scary when you try to gain exposure in a market as large as Baltics. Without your support, my dear friends, and suggestions, I would never be able to create another piece.

Most importantly, I am grateful to the audience for my work. Without you all out there looking at my work, via social media or visiting my studio, and appreciating my work for what it is, and asking your excellent questions on the process and the inspiration behind each piece, I would be making art for no one but myself. Thank you, each and everyone for your inspiring words, your thoughts and love for art in general and for my art.  I have so much for which to be grateful to our Creator and Magnificent Artist of our universe.
