Special Merit Award 2019

MARIO’S PLAYGROUND – 80 x 100cm (32″x40″)

Juried Gallery Light Space & Time Online Gallery based in Palm Springs, California, USA

Painting Mario’s Playground won the Special Merit Award in the category All Women Art Exhibition 2019.

Just a couple of days ago Mario’s Playground won an award at the Light, Space & Time Online Gallery, Palm Springs, California, USA!

It’s a Special Merit Award for the paintings category. The All Women Exhibition is held for the 8th year, and this time the competition was really difficult. There were 909 artworks from all over the world, and from exceptional women artists.

I’m really glad about this painting since it is one of my favourites. But I say that for every painting, don’t I? Well, I always have a difficult time apart from my works.

My heart is full when I make someone happy!

It’s been a long time since I did a classic portrait. For a long time, I was occupied with surreal or expressive portraits or even expressive landscapes, so this one is an exception in my latest work.

This time I painted a classic portrait of Mario. I won’t deny I had a bit of cold feet, but that’s just because I wanted to capture his personality.

Mario is an adorable, warm child, with a vibrant sun-kissed haircut and lovely sparkly eyes. I wanted to do my best to bring all of that to the canvas and anyone who knows him to say – yes, that’s Mario!

This is a good start to 2019! Let’s see what happens next!
