Mixed Media Artist

Turning Japanese and Daily Painters Contest Info

This is a 5″x7″ mixed media painting on paper covered canvas. The sides are .5″ deep and are painted red.
This painting is $60 and is available to purchase HERE
I have always loved Japonism, that time when those wonderful french impressionist painters did lithographs that were inspired by Japanese art. Mary Cassatt, Toulouse-Lautrec and Degas are my favorites. *When this little painting started going in that direction I decided less is sometimes more. Not easy for me as I always want to add more, more, more!

*Not comparing myself to these people just to the fact that this was looking more like a print with larger blocks of colours than a painting.

  3. Hi Maria,
    you might not be comparing yourself to them … but I have! I’m an art teacher and I looove your paintings and follow what you are up to! Earlier in the year I did a presentation on Japonism and how the Impressionists were inspired and then led into how other artists have continued to be inspired. I hope you don’t mind but I showed your work and told my class you were my fav artist at the moment! I think you are well worthy of the comparison.
