Classic Portrait of a Boy

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 the surreal or expressive portraits, or even expressive landscapes, so this one is an exception in my latest work.

This time I painted 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 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!

Art is not what you see but what you make others see.
