I started a really great challenge: to paint a half realistic, half surrealistic piece, using MPO.
I had an old, black and white photo-reference about myself, from age ca.6. I want to show the grey, boring, poor environment from the 50-ies in Hungary, when and where I was grown up. The right side of the painting I will paint ALL the nice dreams from a small girl. I had a problem with the composition: how I was thinking about it first, I was afraid: the painting will fall into two parts, because of the big contrast, BUT then I got the idea: at the bottom part all along I'll show the dark, the scary part of that girl, reading the fairy tales. So I hope I'll be able to realize least a part, what is now in my mind. I already started to cover the masonite with a transparent pure wax and added at the right side the first, color-layers. Now I have the problem again: how I will transfer my drawing, because there is already the wax layer...so I made a copy from my drawing and that I will pierce only on the main shapes, the rest will follow. Here is the first photo about the start. Wish me luck! :)

Dear Marie! This painting is the most perfect I've ever seen! How much sense, professionalism and work you invested. I simply must give you a low Oaklawn and his endless admiration for your creativity and great talent!

Well, I think I reached a point, when I have to stop, otherwise I'll ruin the whole image, so I declare my Imagination, as DONE!
I show here the final stage (I'm not able to shoot a better photo, sorry): the glitters look others in real, but I have not the best camera...
and I show you some close-ups from the girl. Thank you for your attention! :) Mari

Mari, I admire you to do such masterpiece with real ability and your patience.

Your work touches me so tight - and I cannot find the right words. But I think you

understand what I will say.

I even love the way it is.Your detail underlines your quality of work in whole. All well mastered and I really do love every single detail. Your best so far///

Today I took my stylus and started to work on the girl, with fine details, that I couldn't achieve (yet) with the knives. I'm happy, because it works! I show you now 4 close-up, still looks very raw, like "pixelic" because of the calligraphy pen-nib of the stylus, but tomorrow I'll heat and then hopefully won't ruin, but make her smooth.

Thank you Antonin! In real it looks really nice, not too dominant, but in a different angle, or a good, artificial lighting it really glowing. I just have to make the girl's face and figure finer, then DONE! :) Mari

This effect brings it into that dream and imagination. I find it a good connection to the little girl ... Interesting , I wonder how it looks in real....
