Diptych. Oil on canvas, palette knife, 60 × 40 cm and 60 × 45 cm. 17 May 2021
The third diptych from the series "Giving to the Street" is made simultaneously against a heavenly and earthly blue background. Moscow blue on the walls is the second most famous after Moscow yellow. At the same time, this color picks up the enthusiastic blue of May. The title is the first words from Okudzhava's “Merry Drummer”. For me, this is the memory of my childhood, the Arbat with trolleybuses, Gogolevsky Boulevard with the clink of trams. Dedicated to my older brother Misha.
