"Le Défi" in Toronto, January 7-19. Waddington Auction Rooms

My painting "Le Défi" is in the Kingston Prize exhibition wich opens today in Toronto at Waddington Auction Rooms, 111 Bathurst Street.
The exhibition will finish on January 19th.

This painting won 2 people's choice awards, was finalist in the Artist Magazine competition, and also was finalist in the Raymar Art competition. Here is what Bryce Cameron Liston who was the judge said about it:

Le Défi by Marina Dieul
30" x 24" Oil

Judge's Comments: Unlimited imagination. This is an absolutely brilliantly executed Tromp-l'oeil painting. The painting has so many levels; I don't even know where to start. I love the idea which completely took me by surprise. I'm sure there is more going on in this painting than meets the eye, it certainly makes me ask many questions, and continue to examine all of the wonderful intricacies found along the way. The artist has successfully executed all of the different textures. I love the way the artist incorporated her signature on the plastic, and backwards to boot!
