Meet Olvi He was a giant, and a very kind calm soul. Olvi was 11 years old when he got injured on the pasture at his work last summer so the owner had to put him down.
He was loved very much and he left a big emptiness at their farm in Finland @smedisgarden
My story is this... before painting Olvi the Bull, I had changed my art direction and for the last year I was working with a different medium and different subjects to animals. I have missed and never let go of thinking about painting animals, particularly the Bull, and was still continuing looking for inspirational bull photos to trigger my emotions to one day come back and paint . During the last year I’ve been through hundreds of Bull photos and out of all the photos of different bulls Olvi’s photos stood out in a the very special way
So here is how I see Olvi and my interpretation of him on the canvas. Art by Dina Perejogina.
