Local and international talents love Lake Tahoe and the hospitality of its people. It’s no wonder that the Marcus Ashley Gallery is such a hot spot for visitors. While examining the collections, you’ll also come across Alexander Volkov art. If you’re looking for realism paintings, the artist’s work is in a class of its own.

Volkov has a unique perspective on light, attributed to his time at the Leningrad State University, where he studied physics for eight years. In First Snowfall, the artist leans on pastel hues to capture a hazy winter’s day.

Autumnal colors of burnt orange and sunflower yellow add a pop of color to this otherwise toned-down composition. In the distance, snow covers once green pastures with a quilt of frost. Volkov uses restrained yet precise brushstrokes to produce a dreamy landscape.

First Snowfall will transpose you to a tranquil spot cloaked in nothing but deafening silence. The air is crisp, and the birds are silent for now.

It’s the sort of piece you’d love to revisit for quiet, reflective moments. The Marcus Ashley Gallery is the perfect place to buy this giclée on canvas.
