About Elena’s paintings:
This admirable work was presented to me by people, who know that the animal issue is very important for me. When I took off the elegant wrapping, I felt the divine smell of paint and there was no end my happiness: I looked at the beautiful eyes of my favourite dog. A noble face of Martin with hairs and wet nose was so vivid and real that I could almost feel his breathing. He was a splendid as in real life!
But moreover my dear dog, in honor of whom the picture is titled “King of kings”, is here, among his other shaggy friends. Some of them are still alive and some already passed away.
In the composition of this picture even a white-coat seal has found its place. We are fighting to save him together with Laima Vaikule, Artemiy Troitskiy, Andrey Makarevich, Konstantin Sabinin, Irina Novozhilova, Elena Kamburova Alexander Sklyar, Konstant Raikin and with other good people.
I am happy that now in my house I have a picturesque embodiment of creatures to whom I feel respect and tenderness, and that these vulnerable neighbors of humanity attract attention of such talented artists as Elena Shorokhova-Gayun."

Elena remembers the Past, lives in the Present and dreams of the Future .
Double-headed eagles, coats of arms, ornamental compositions - this is from childhood - perhaps from the books .
For a little girl came in a dream
A unicorn – a symbol of a just ruler and spiritual purity.
A bird of Paradise, the Syrin, shows itself only to happy people.
A lion - a symbol of power, strength, courage, bravery and generosity,- As her father taught…
In Memory of the Valiant Past...
