Mario Still Life by Photia Mario Still Life by Photia
Due to popular demand, I've made this into a print on my Etsy page. Check it out here: www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Lizustrat...

Since making mock classical paintings is kind of my thing, I thought it would be fun to branch out from portraiture. It occurred to me that Mario had a lot of vegetables and flowers, such as may be found in a regular old-fashioned still life, and so I painted this. Every single thing in this painting came from a Mario game - even the vase.

mmm mmm mmm, I have to say, you put a lot of life into these power ups(and piranha plant, and koopa shell...and coins); it's as if they exist in the real world. Rating of over 9000/10 :D

They're from Mario Bros. 2, that game had a different play style, it was more about picking up objects and throwing them at enemies. Turnips were an object you could pick up.
