“I paint both what I see and what I feel,” said Komissarchik, “my paintings are finished when they are able to convey a moment or sensation of where I am, as well as what I am seeing.”
On Thursday, March 13th, 2014, the Colusa County Arts Council will showcase Komissarchik’s work with an Artist Reception starting at 5:00 p.m.
