43x43 in (110x110 cm), oil on canvas 2014 Village or the countryside plays an important role in the lives of almost every Russian. It is the place where we used to spend our childhood summers. This painting portrays a small street of four thatched-roof houses. In the center we see a dirt road, a wheat spikelet, and a tiny tree. The carpet of meadows and rivers unfold their marvels behind the houses. A crane floats in the sky lit by the sun. On the bottom left lies a large chicken egg.
