  1. International Prize Leonardo Da Vinci - The Universal Artist

    Dear Artist Janet Watson,

    I am very proud to award you with the International Prize Leonardo Da Vinci - The Universal Artist. The Prize is for the Artists that are worth for their artistic merit. You will be awarded on January 29th, 2016, inside the Borghese Palace in Florence.

    It is one of the most prestigious art awards awarded in the heart of Florence. Important celebrities from the world of culture will be present at the ceremony and the talented artists will be awarded with an important prize for their careers. In the January/February number of the magazine Art International Contemporary, we will realize an introductive piece dedicated to Leonardo Da Vinci’s artistic talent; following to the piece the publication of the selcted artists’ artworks.

    In the heart of the ancient Florence, near ‘’Piazza del Duomo’’ and ‘’Piazza della Signoria’’, Borghese Palace is one of the most significative example of Neo-Classic architecture of the state capital, Florence. Even if its facade is majestic, this palace could seem hidden by the strict road. But once you come in, the beauty and the elegance are dazzling: the large honour salon brings to the Mirrors’ Room , that was the bedroom of Paolina Bonaparte.

    The prize is given to those artists who has been chosen by Mr. Salvatore Russo and Francesco Saverio Russo.

    Sincerely

    Dott. Salvatore Russo

    Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)

    A universal man, Leonardo possessed a spirit of scientific inquiry and mechanical inventiveness that was centuries ahead of its time. His genius as a painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect and engineer exemplified the Renaissance Humanist ideal.

    The unfolding of his genius occurred during the 17 years he spent as painter and engineer for the Duke of Milan. Leonardo´s surviving works consist mainly of a few paintings, as well as a large number of drawings, scientific diagrams, and notes on diverse subjects. His “Last Supper” (1495-1497) and “Mona Lisa” (La Gioconda 1503-1506) are among the most popular and influential paintings of the Renaissance. Also well known are “The Virgin of the Rocks” (1483-1485), “The Virgin and Child with St. Anne” (1499) and his “Self Portrait”.

    Despite the fragmentary nature of his surviving achievements, his genius will continue to live as a legacy of knowledge to inspire the imagination of modern man.

  2. Artist Janet Watson at Ryton Organic Gardens : )

    Ryton Organic Gardens is a wonderful charity and is special to me because I totally believe and love organic food and I admire the way Ryton Organic Gardens is a fantastic ambassador for promoting organic produce from the soil to your plate, worldwide. 
    As I walked around the fasinating, colourful and stunning individual gardens (a must see-at any time of the year) each of which a secret garden in my eyes; at Ryton Organic Gardens in 2015 and my creative imagination started to go into overdrive. I was coming up with assorts of inspirational ideas for my paintings incorporating what I had seen at Ryton Organic gardens that day, including new plant/flower growth and the sun beaming down and glistening like little crystals. My new artwork "The Secret Crystal Flower Garden" collection was born. I am so happy to be represented by Ryton Organic Gardens who have my artwork on display in their shop, a big thank you to Ryton Organics.

    A bit about me: I have been creative since I was younger and it has stayed with me and now I am showing the world my imagination in my artwork. I am a lover of the natural world and have studied many subjects including ecology, earth science, feng shui and love them all. This is one of the reasons I have found a passion in crystals, rocks, chakras, flowers, hearts and how crystals can help you. 

    I create abstract, contemporary and modern art and I love it. I work in watercolour, acrylic, oil and mixed media on canvas board, wrapped canvas, art paper and slate etc. 
    My art looks stunning in homes, hotels, offices/business, cafes, and restaurants - I have sold art to as far away as Australia. 
    My inspiration for one of my other new collections is called “Rocks and Pools” as well studying Earth Sciences I saw in a Inspirational Photography Magazine "The National Geographic" a photo of Mollusk’s on rocks in February 2015 the photo was stunning and I started designing and putting my ideas together, I added water as in the photo there was no water, I designed my own contemporary limpets and my "Rocks and Pools" collection was born.
    Some of my other collections are; Raw Geode, Raw Opal, Night and Day, Raw Crystal, Raw Agate, Raw Marble, Raw Chakra, Rocks and Pools and a lot more to come. 
    Next Art Events: The Global Art Agency - Oxford International Art Fair; February; 26th, 27th, 28th at Oxford Town Hall 2016.
