“The feel what I was looking for in this painting is lightness, gentleness and calmness,” Grigor Malinov says. “The breeze with its softness sends away the turmoil. The woman in the white kimono reflects the tranquility and peace that the breeze brings. I used characteristics of the Japanese culture, which is well known for its meditation traditions and practices.” Shown: “With the Breeze,” oil on canvas, 24 inches by 24 inches. This piece is for sale at $1,400 and was awarded a 2023 Inside Publisher’s Award in the California State Fair Fine Arts Competition. Visit grigormalinov.com.
