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.

Very clever.  Never thought to use these items in such a casual still life.  Neat.

Heh sorry if I'm being weird favoriting all your still lifes, but they're just so pleasing to look at!

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

I love this. It's so...tangible. I feel like I could lift the 1UP half right off the screen.
