Oleg painted a picture of nine men scratching chiggers, but the
one I have included him as the tenth man. It is unique; my wife bought it for my birthday.
He had a huge painting on his easel at the time which I understand he later sold to a lodge in Colorado. He's super!
Have Oleg will travel?Matt Duthie
Oleg was a client of my Dad's in Durango CO for various work, and he paid his bills in Paintings... I remember when a Lamborgini Countach was parked @ our home and I asked him how much it cost.... '9 paintings was the answer...' My brothers and sisters all have a few Oleg's and we adore them...
When Oleg popped into my gallery.A.W. Buster Jones
I owned a beautiful gallery in Post Texas and Oleg dropped in one day and introduced myself. He stuck out his hand and told me his name. I really showed my ignorance when I asked him if he painted. a simple yes was his answer. That night I went through my collection of Southwest art and almost fainted when I saw his magnificent work. Oleg dropped by two other times to visit. The thing I remember most, I told him I'd always wanted to paint, but it was a real struggle. I said I didn't have any trouble with sculture, and he said, "hell man, Sculpt".
I am no longer there, but I enjoyed that period in my life, and especially that visit from Oleg. Good luck to you Oleg.
