Details

Intent on the game, a young boy carefully takes aim and shoots a marble with a quick flick of the thumb. The prizes he hopes to take home drift in the air, giving form to his thoughts — a colorful cat's eye and a crystalline cleary. "Many of us played this marvelous game. We loved it!" says Guatemalan artist Mario Sergio Aviles. "The transparent glass globes seemed to enclose a piece of the sky." Working in oils on canvas, he shares memories of a happy childhood.

Titled "Jugando cincos" in Spanish.

"A Beautiful, and Meaningful, Work of Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This painting gives me great joy. I love the colors and the composition. The artist, Mario Sergio Aviles, created a powerful image, filled with meaning. The subject reminds me of the seasons of the church, the seasons of life, and Gods gifts: children, rain, faith, forgiveness, and hope. Also, the canvas arrived ready to hang and was well protected for transport. This beautiful painting will be treasured.
