I ran across Mario’s watercolor work on Vimeo when I found this video. I immediately was drawn to his portraits, and knew I wanted to feature him here on my blog. Be sure to visit Mario’s website to see more of his portraitures. He also has a FB page, and online workshops.
About this featured artist series: I pretty much always keep my nose to the grindstone, and rarely look up from my own work. I’m so busy in my studio, who has time for anything else? That’s what I used to think, anyway, but I want to change that a bit, and spend 2017 exploring other artists’ work. My thinking is this.. maybe by understanding what makes other artists tick, I can better understand myself, and why art is so important to me. I hate the thought of keeping these gems all to myself, so I thought I’d share them with you. Look for new posts every Thursday.
