Pinch Me, I think I'm Dreaming

Pinch Me, I think I'm Dreaming

Just a little over two years ago I found my true passion ....painting.  I'm a 50 something wife, grandmother and now artist.  I only began my artist journey a couple years ago after retiring from the corporate world.  With no prior art training I had this burning desire to paint and time to pursue my dream.  

With dozens of exhibitions and shows under my belt during the past year I now have my first of two solo shows coming up and I am so excited.  The first will be September 15, 2016 at The Bunker in Ybor City.  The second is at the historic Rialto Theatre in Tampa in January 2017.  

I have been busy selecting the paintings to exhibit for The Bunker show and getting them ready for hanging (i.e. making sure they're varnished, signed and wired for hanging).  I have to thank my husband for taking care of all the wiring duties.  He'll also be assisting me with hanging the first show.  He truly supports my art and I am so very grateful for that!

I am so excited with all the new products available through my Fine Art America shop.  In addition to the throw pillow, duvet covers, shower curtains and tote bags they now have fabulous beach towels, weekender bags, carry-all pouches and much more. Dozens of designs to choose from.  Here's just a sampling friends.  

If you'd like more information on any of these products, simply visit my Fine Art America shop by click here.  And, these items make wonderful gifts for friends and family!

I am so blessed to be able to paint every day and have such wonderful fans and collectors all over the country. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement as I continue my journey to "paint the colors of my soul".  I still feel like I am dreaming!!

Wishing you all the best my friends,  Mary

If you have an impulse to do something, and it’s not totally irresponsible, why not do it? It might be just the journey you’ve always needed.

Thanksgiving Blessings

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to express my gratitude to all my wonderful collectors and fans across the country.  I am truly blessed to be able to create art that connects with so many.  Thank you for your continued support and encouragement friends.  

I wish each of you a most blessed and joy filled Thanksgiving holiday.

Another Good Year

We thank you, Lord, for food and friends
And for all of the joy this holiday lends;
It’s Thanksgiving Day and we can see
The blessings you’ve provided our family.

Thanks to you, Lord, for another good year;
When you watch over us, there’s nothing to fear.

This is the second month of the "Steal of  the Month".  This month I'm pleased to offer "Hollyhocks and Blue Window".  This painting was completed last fall following a visit to the beautiful Santa Fe area. Hollyhocks are one of my favorite flowers to paint, and the Canyon Road area of Santa Fe abounds with them throughout the summer. 

I'd love to see this sweet painting find a loving home, and it can be yours friends.   

Congratulations to Marilyn F. for being the winner of the October "Steal of the Month", a two piece painting entitled "Mary's Garden".

My favourite flower, if you’ll pardon,
 Is standing stately in my garden,
  And it’s so tall it must have props.
  They lend support to hollyhocks.

They’re tall, graceful and so proud.
The wind’s blown one; it’s sadly bowed.
  They come in lovely pastel shades;
  It’s unfortunate that they ever fade.

Before you cut them down, you’ll find
So many seeds are left behind,
  And if you plant them, they will grow.
  Next year you’ll have another show.
