WELCOME TO MONA YOUSSEF'S
Herewith, are some of the original realism oil paintings on canvas. Prints and Greeting Cards are available of some paintings. Watching this presentation video will provide a brief yet, clear history of each painting.
All paintings were created on 100% pure linen/canvas which were well treated professionally, some months prior to painting and one year after the work was done. The paintings were created with many fine layers, using Sable brushes made of horse tail as small as size 18 zeros. The paintings did not have glazing between layers, rather richness and quality were created naturally by adding the fine layers that gave depth and the classic look. This technique insures the longevity of the painting for hundreds of years as vibrant as can be which means that colors will not turn yellowish with time.

The following was one comment, among many others, Mona has received on her artwork
“As a Canadian Journalist, I have written about many noteworthy subjects, catering to the interests of various communities. I am proud to have had the opportunity to appreciate the work of Canadian Artist, Mona Youssef, whose work transcends thoughts and imagination from the simplest of concepts. We human often overlook the most basic beauty that surrounds us every day. Through natural light and shadows, Mona has captured the essence or reality of objects on canvas so they are impossible to ignore. Often our life is composed of what our thoughts make it. Viewing her work has given me a different perspective in which to view life. The blazing color and intricate detail’s expresses how life is to be enjoyed. Pride makes us do things well, but it’s love that brings them to perfection. Mona has great love to create feelings as optimism and hope, to all who view her work.” Kevin Otto, Edmonton, AB, Canada.
“And so, I believe that art is a manifestation of love.” Mona.
