Ciao Mario,
grazie per la gentile visita e per il graditissimo commento. Maestro no non sono perche' proprio non ho pazienza per insegnare.Certo dipingere e' la mia passione.

This is a beautiful painting Mariano. For me, it is the best that I have seen of yours. As far as at least Flowers are comcerned, you have arrived my friend. Mariano, I emailed you a couple of weeks ago asking you something and you have yet to give me an answer my friend. I hope everything is okay with you both. All the best.
Vic.

Mariano, this still life is anything but "still". It's fluid and full of life. Your colors are beautiful, particularly the unexpected blue-greens of the cascading foliage. A lovely piece! Jeanne

Hi Jeanne,
Know that your comment is really much appreciated, since is many years that you are one of my favorite painters!I am glad you liked my colors. I was trying to give the effect of foliage slowly emerging from the shadows! An intriguing proposition. Thank you again and happy painting

Mariano, beautiful still life. They look fresh picked and colors are brilliant. I love the thickness of you paint application. Great job.

Hi Joan,
thank you very much . Is all an illusion. The background is thin and flat so anything you put on it looks tick. On the vase the color is mixed with the pallette knife , somehow the colors mix more cleanly and crispy, something i learn from Daniel Edmonson. Thanks for your support.
