Yours for £1,000

Hello. I have had some fantastic reviews about my latest abstract painting, it has taken the art world by storm. I would never have envisaged such a high accolade for my humble offerings. This has surely spurred me on to explore my previously hidden inner talents and produce more stunning pieces. This is what the Curator of the Rolf Maximillion Gallery in Budapest has said about my work.
The previously little known artist Ilona Kontowski, has come a long way since her first tentative steps into the world of abstract art. This unique and endearing composition has all the qualities one would expect from Dali or Picasso. It captures the very essence of  life. Note the exquisite combination of order and disorder. The straight and orderly lines are challenged and intercepted by the chaotic splashes of colour and mayhem. The artist has to be complimented on her photographic skills, look at the effects of direct sunlight on the first picture. The garden was the best setting to highlight how the vibrant colours have interacted with each other. And what a clever move to include an excerpt from that well loved book by Hans Habe. The story of Ilona, brings a new dimension to the painting, and adds substance and depth to the already significant offering. There is no doubt in my mind that this painting will not look out of place amongst the many great artists of the world, and should it ever become available in the not too distant future, we would be honoured to show it in our Gallery. Best regards, Ivan Rattowitz, Budapest.    






Wow, I am chuffed. Looks kinda nice on my mantlepiece in the front room. I don't really want to let it go, but if anyone can come up with the dosh, £1,000 is all I'm asking, they can have it.

  1. You are wonderful! I started laughing at the first sentence and haven't stopped yet!
    Do you remember how John Lennon and Yoko Ono had some kind of art show and someone tried to buy the old dresser or table on which they had been mixing paints? It was not part of the show but the person didn't realize that!
    Thanks for a good chuckle.... JanF

  5. Dear Ilona, I would love to buy this painting. As a gift for a beloved friend. Im estimating that this work took you hours, days, weeks to construct. It must've taken at least 50 weeks so you're asking price is very reasonable. I look forward to receiving it, after I've handed over my money. I will of course recommend you to all my friends, who will buy one too. Thank you for very much!
    Sincerely,
    Simplesista

  8. How wonderful!! But then we all know you are an artist. Or should I say "An Artist". I hope all the ladies who have won your lovely bags should make sure they are put in places of honor. Congratulations Ilona. Let it go to your head!

  13. We were once on a school trip to London and were in an art gallery. There was a framed picture of what I can only describe as different coloured bits of wood stuck on - looked a bit like fire kindling sticks. I over heard two of my teachers while they earnestly studied the pictures, head to the side, one said to the other "What do you think the artist is trying to tell us here?", to which the other replied "I think he's trying to tell us that he failed his GCSE woodwork"!.
