Finalist in the Kinston Prize

I learned that my painting " Le défi" is chosen as finalist in the Kingson Prize, Canada's National Portrait Competition.
The portraits finalists will be exhibited at the Grand Theatre in Kingston, Ontario, from October 9 - 25.
After its Kingston showing the exhibition will embark on a national tour lasting several months, heading to Wolfville, Nova Scotia; Toronto; and Calgary.

J'ai appris que ma peinture "Le défi" a été choisie comme finaliste au Prix Kingston, concours national du portrait Canadien.

Les portraits finalistes seront exposés au Grand Théâtre de Kingston du 9 au 25 octobre, avant de partir pour un tour du pays comprenant la Nouvelle-Écosse, Toronto, et Calgary.

I came across your blog and was overwhelmed by the fantastic portraits you make. What a craftmanship. Love your work!

Marina Dieul said...

Thank you Mona! Yes it's a great solution to paint a frame in trompe-l'oeil ( just a bit time consuming though! )

Jiddje: thank you so much! Portraiture is so challenging, but also so rewarding...
