Happy group exhibition

19 Karen gallery has organized an exhibition of works by over 45 international artists that aim to answer one question – what makes people happy? Though they come from different backgrounds and various art genres, all participating artists have something that makes them happy and they are ready to share it with the world.

Here's my statement about the work:
The things that make me happy I've come to realise are the simplest pleasures in life. Obviously painting makes me very happy, so just to work on this piece was a joy. But the sentiment behind it is to find calm and serenity surrounded by the beauty of nature. "The Daydream" is an escape from the everyday life, to stop and have some of those child-like, naive dreams rolling around in the grass on a sunny day. What could be more simple?
