This painting is so original, unique, and masterfully painted. What does the title mean in English?

Ciao! Paola

Hello patrice,
Thank you. The title means " The Challenge". It's not only the portrait of this little girl, I wanted it to be the portrait of this new generation. What are they going to do with the legacy we're leaving them, this world full of plastic...
(That said,on an aesthetic point of vue, I love plastic!)

Grazie Paola!

This is unbelievable, Marina. Or should I say, believable. Not only do you display expert painting skills, but your unique idea shows what a creative mind you have.

Marina Dieul said...

Thank you Deborah,
I think that with hard work, everyone can acquire technical skills. Creativity is often forgotten, although it's at least as important (or maybe more?).Creativity must be developped during the whole life, and the great thing is it can be applied to every aspect of everyday life, not only arts!

Dear Marina, I have just come upon your blog and am quite overwhelmed by the beauty of your work. It is simply exquisite and I found myself catching my breathe as I went through the images, kind of like what one would feel watching a high-wire walker: ... thinking "she's not daring to do that?... Is she? She is! She's done it! It's amazing!" Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that you have really touched me with your art. I am in wonderment. And I wish you all the best in the future, much joy, and much continued success ahead! Aliaena

Thank you so much, Aliaena for your kind comment. Well, I would say that the risk involved in daring new compositions, ideas, etc... is very low in comparison with high-wire walker!

Wow, I love how you have captured all of the different textures so perfectly so that you can almost feel the paper wall and the depth behind it. Very cool idea and amazingly done as usual ;)

Thank you, Tracey!
