The Crying  Mask  by Mary Sedici

Throw Pillows

Available to buy on…


Acrylic on Canson Paper 9×12
Inspired by the beauty and mystery of our celestial Moon, and the beauty of the Venetian Masks

My Mask, Moon, is not crying because she is sad. She is crying because SHE knows she is beautiful. These are tears of joy and happiness.

Game Of Love – I was listening this song as long I painted MOON. Posted it here to remind me of the joy and pleasure I had painting Her. This is why probably I made this paiting in maybe 10 hours – of course – not constant work.

I want to say a big Thank You to Helene Ruiz who invited me to participate in the Masquared Exhibition. Due to this invitation, I painted my very first human figure. I am so very greatful. Without her, I wouldn’t have made this step taking my painting experience to another level.

    Nice work Mary. I love the colours and composition in this one. I don’t know how you have time to paint, when you are so busy looking after all of us.
    Regards Kerry

  • Hello Kerry, thank you so very much. I am very pleased with this work myself. Actually I am in love with it :)) To answer to your second qustionion – I am a multitasker, I get easily bored, so I have to work on multiple projects in the same time. This is whay I have 3 more paintings in progress :)) The Mask I did it in a few hours. I loved doing it.
