Oil Painting "Liberation Road" on Video

A painting I completed last year, "Liberation Road" was based on a photo of my paternal great great grandmother, or great grandmother, I do not really know how to tell.  She was a veryelegant woman with a knowing look and that haunted me and caused me to wonder what had happened to her, to her descendants in the ensuring years - all the upheavals, wars, famine - human suffering of all kinds, culminated in the so-called revolution in the mid-twentieth century.  I made a short video (1:56) to present this painting very dear to my heart.

  1. People asked about the sound track of this video. The title, translated from Chinese, is "Song of the Volga Boatman". For longer version, view other YouTube videos - in Chinese or in Russian.
