Happiness - it's something that is always with you. Shining picture of artist Alexander Maranov


This - raindrops. This - the glare of fire.
This - shimmer. And flying in reality.
This is - something that everyone knows.
And no one knows!

From the book reviews the exhibition A.Maranova



Vivaldi - Adagio

The longer you live in this world, the more you realize that happiness - is something that is always with you. We just forgot (I - forget you - I forgot - they are forgotten, but now I remembered and will never forget) that happiness - it's almost like a match: it is always with you - now they just lay down in your pocket or lining. But it is still HERE.

And neither of whom is independent. Or from someone else's love or from our luck, nor from our state of affairs, nor of our non-loneliness. It - just is. Even though we are often unhappy. This is our internal skeleton, the skeleton, the blood, the calcium in our bones and a constant background is ironic in our minds.


Legends of the forest

Just do not forget: that happiness is so shrill and inherently so unbearable that when a person is experiencing it, it starts spinning like balls, which are tied to the neck thundering tin. Cool to only this happiness with yourself throw. Because happiness all seen (and thus shamefully), because it is very loud and unusual (and thus interferes with sleep, more precisely, even lie interfere) ... Because you from it - can not escape.

It was at this time after painful reflection about the meaning of life, the true vocation of the artist, on his mission came to me knowing in an instant overturned all my life - I opened Shining.

Many works were born to the music of Bach, Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky - turn off the lights, close your eyes and surrender to the will of musical waves, inch by inch "monitor" their future work and, while it does not appear inner vision as a single whole, in every detail, complete with composition, do not rise to the canvas. Sometimes it requires more than one month ... "
