THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Mount Kazbek Painting puts emphasis on a solitary mountain peak. In this painting, a huge, towering summit of a mountain rises from the base of the center of the painting, reaching upward toward the dazzling blue, slightly cloudy sky. This mountain peak is covered in white, creamy snow that contrasts beautifully the rest of the scene. In the foreground, other, much smaller peaks can be seen, cast in colors such as tan, green, dark blue and brown to suggest the presence of both sun and shade. There is no snow to be seen anywhere else but on the peak.

He has worked with other talented artists in Armenia and was known as a master of creating not only portraiture, but of beautiful landscapes as well.
