Last year my friend was going through some tough times so we decided to pick up some plastic fruit and flowers and set them for still life paintings. On the way home, I must have dropped one of the pears, I had three to start with. So for that reason, there is only 2 pears in this painting. And once I had painted the pears I asked her "what color for the backround?" she said "blue of course". I was wondering for a bit, it wasnt such a "of course" for me, but then I thought, she must really know my paintings backround must be blue. So I finished it and showed it. Whe then asked "what's with the blue?" I said "you told me to paint it blue!" all this time whe was talking about her own painting!! So she painted a bluebackround painting with orange flowers and I with my pears. 

This painting is done with a knife I only used  brush for minor details. 


Size 50x50cm. Price> 300e, 380$, 2400RMB, 6600TWD

Hello... I Am Maria


A little about me

 Artist painter Maria Melenchuk I was born in Finland, in the city of Lappeenranta - city full of lakes and forrests. Growing up I spent most of my time going between home and seeing uncles and auntie, grandmother and great auntie. This is how I learned to drink coffee at a very early age - I really miss the way my great auntie made a cup of "kohvi"!!.Read more About me
