The Door & What's Behind It




Yes, that door. If you live in Crystal Palace in London, chances are you’ve seen it already. It’s in the middle of Woodland Road, boldly contrasting with the Victorian house it belongs to. Behind it I will be showing my art as part of Crystal Palace Artists' Open House Saturday 29th February & Sunday 1st March and Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th March 11am – 6pm at 46 Woodland Road SE19 1NT



You can win this original picture of a cat! Take a photo of the art door at 46 Woodland Road, post it with the hashtag #artmariarado and follow me @artmariarado on Instagram or on Facebook @artmariarado. Post your tagged pictures before 9th of March when the draw will take place.

Have fun!


Crystal Palace Artists' Open Houses is an opportunity for art lovers to see and buy art directly from artists. Also you can take a peek at artists' studios and houses. I will have on display about 25 original paintings. You can get a taste by visiting my online gallery




Also on display will be a few pieces of hand painted furniture. Reimagining furniture is another passion of mine. I find it exciting not only because it’s environmentally friendly but also because I am in love with the feeling of my brush moving on good, old wood. I went to Ardingly Antiques Fair and hand picked some excellent quality furniture with character that I slowly paint now.

Here is a link to a blog post by the photographer James Balston presenting some of the other artists participating in Crystal Palace Artists' Open House.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
