♥ This canvas depicts

an old veteran of World War II in military uniform, decorated with numerous orders and medals with his grandson during the Victory Day holiday on May 9 on a warm sunny spring day. The boy is sitting in the arms of his grandfather, He clung to him. It seems that the child is looking for protection or wants to ask him about something. Grandfather looks at his grandson very tenderly, with love.

Around you can see the perfect landscape in every way. Spring, early May, sunny day, a large flowering apple tree.

The painter draws a clear parallel between nature and the relationship of grandfather and grandson. They are really harmonious and beautiful. The artist lovingly prescribes all the facial features of his heroes. To do this, he selects the appropriate shades. The viewer feels that the old man and the boy are alive. It seems that the portrait is voluminous.
