It's Pumpkin Season

It's Pumpkin Season!!

My favorite season of the year hands down is Fall.  What other season gives you such variety of the beauty in nature?  Colorful trees shedding their leaves like painted carpets.  Living here in Florida I either have to paint my own Fall or travel out of state to enjoy it.  Luckily, this year I get to do both.  I'll be traveling to Santa Fe in a couple weeks to take in the Aspens in their high desert Fall beauty.

Just Beyond The Trees is a new painting recalling the autumns of my youth growing up in Southern Maryland.  I've been gone 40 years, but will always miss the change of season.

I'm so excited to get to visit Santa Fe again to see the fall colors.  It's only been four months since my last visit this summer, but the city has been calling my name and I must go.

You know once Halloween comes then the holiday season is in full swing.  It will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas before we know it.  It's not to early to order your 2017 calendars.  I've just designed them and they make wonderful gifts!!  Available from my Zazzle shop in three sizes.  Just click on the photo for more information.

And, speaking of Christmas, I did a very limited edition of hand painted ornaments for your tree.  Four color palettes to select from (black/gold/white, purple/teal/white, blue/green/white and orange/gold/white). These glass ornaments are approximately 4" across and come gift boxed.  Each is individually hand painted so no two are identical.  I have only 13 left as of today. Please message me if you are interested. They're only $20 + shipping.

 

Each ornament is signed and dated.

Thanks for taking time to visit with me friends.  I hope you get lots of "treats" next week for Halloween.  I'm looking forward to trick or treating with our grandchildren.  Hopefully they'll share some chocolate with their "Gigi".   

Until next time, I wish you many blessings, Mary

The artist knows he must be alone to create; the writer to work out his thoughts; the musician, to compose; the saint, to pray. But women need solitude in order to find again the true essence of themselves.

My Favorite Season Will Soon Be Here

Fall is my absolute favorite season of the year, even though I live in a state that doesn't actually experience a true fall season.  I grew up in Southern Maryland and still remember the crisp autumn weather, beautiful foliage, bonfires and hayrides.  After 40 years in FL you'd think I would not get homesick to see the leaves change, but I still do.  So what does a Floridian do when she's missing the change of season?  She paints it.

I may not be able to see the leaves changing, but I can see them in my mind and paint them. Bluebird in Autumn was such fun to paint. This lovely bird brings nature to life in this semi-abstract painting.  

Here is another new painting, Hollyhocks and Blue Sky inspired by the heavenly hollyhocks seen reaching for the sky in gardens along Canyon Road in Santa Fe.  They are one of my favorite old time flowers; and, one we cannot grow in FL due to the heat and humidity.  All the more reason I love to paint them.

These new paintings are available in prints, canvas prints, tote bags, pillows, shower curtains and more through my Fine Art America shop. They make a lovely addition to your home for the fall season.

Starting in October I'm going to start a monthly contest where I'll offer one original painting you can bid on.  More details to follow in the next newsletter.  I'm very excited to offer this opportunity to my fans as a way to start an art collection, or add to an existing one.  

My new 2016 art calendar is available through Zazzle.  The convenient aspect about Zazzle is that they have customization tools for customers, so you can adapt the year, time schedule, holidays, and sizes to your preferences.  The calendars are available in three sizes.

Just click on the calendar to visit my Zazzle shop for my calendar and other products.

Thank you for visiting with me here in my blog.  Please invite your friends to visit me as well.  Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend to come.  

The world puts on its robes of glory now; the very flowers are tinged with deeper dyes; the waves are bluer, and the angels pitch their shining tents along the sunset skies.
