Miniature oil paintings on stones by self-taught artist Yana Khachikyan based in Kiev, Ukraine. The stones vary in size, shape, and color with some stones brought to her by her friends from their trips all over the world. The subject matter varies from landscapes to animals to surreal scenes but her style remains consistent throughout.
I started painting on stones two years ago. Now it is my passion. It's something that I never get bored of. I can spend many hours painting some small details and I am enjoying it. For some reason I am mostly painting at nights. Sometimes I start painting in the evening and the next thing I notice around me, it's the sunlight outside. Usually it takes me several hours up to a few days to finish one painting depending on the complexity of the picture.You can purchase Yana Khachikyan's paintings on Etsy.
