An Open Air Rehearsal
by Yulia Jeltuhin, 2017
“An Open Air Rehearsal” is quite the beautiful oil on canvas painting. It fills your senses with joy. It’s as if you can feel the cold air given off by the Iceland glacier. The sky is blue although white clouds cover most of it in this painting. The mountains in Iceland are covered in snow. From where you’re standing, you can feel the hair on your arms stand up and give you chills. You see a child standing in front of you on the large rock wearing a yellow shirt. The child dances along the song in her head while blowing bubbles into the air. She hopes it will reach the top of the mountains, truly the kind of hope a child would have.
