Welcome Spring!

Welcome Spring!!

Spring has finally appeared on the calendar, just not necessarily in your neck of the woods friends. Here in sunny Florida we’re enjoying a beautiful start to the season and art shows and exhibits are in full swing. My show at the Highlands Museum of the Arts in Sebring, FL is winding down to a close on March 29. I don’t have another show planned till November this year which leaves lots of time to create new work.

I’ve been painting away on smaller works the past couple months using an oil and cold wax method and really loving the results. These paintings are created by applying many layers oil paint mixed with a cold wax medium (made with bees wax) and then removing some of the layers to reveal the underlying paint layers. It’s kind of like excavating a painting to find its history.

Here are just a few of the new paintings created with this method.

There is a certain luminosity with the oil paints that I don’t find with acrylics. Acrylics are still my go to for painting, but it’s great to have a second set of tools in my tool box.

If you’d like more information on these paintings, or any of my others, I invite you to visit my website. And, don’t forget I offer complimentary US shipping and convenient payment plans can be set up anytime. I love to make it easy for my art to find their forever homes.

Thank you for your continued support friends. If you know of someone who might enjoy my artwork, I would be honored if you shared this blog with them. And, if your friend makes a purchase from your referral, there will be a little something in it for you!!

May 2019 continue to brighten your lives with color.

Your artist friend, Mary

Happy Holidays from Mary Mirabal Art

Happy Holidays from Mary Mirabal Art

Blog-Header-Happy-Holiday.jpg

As 2018 comes to a close and I count my many blessings, I want you to know you are included in that count. What an amazing year it has been, and your continued friendship and support has been a big part of my success and happiness.

I continue to learn and grow as an artist. Broadening my horizons and getting outside my comfort zone have resulted in some different and beautiful new art this year. Thanks for continuing to cheer me on in this pursuit.

Here are just a couple of my latest paintings which you may not have seen. If you’d like more info on either painting, simply click on the images.

Paradise Lost, 36 x 36 acrylic on canvas

Paradise Lost, 36 x 36 acrylic on canvas

Paradise Lost was created as a tribute to honor all those who lost their lives, homes and more in the tragic wildfires that have ravaged California recently. The events have touched me deeply, and I felt the need to convey my thoughts on canvas.

Connections, 36 x 36 acrylic on canvas

Connections, 36 x 36 acrylic on canvas

Connections was created to embrace the way each of us, and the entire universe, are connected in ways we may never fully understand. From the tiniest creature to the vastness of the heavens.

Our home is decorated for Christmas, and I am fondly recalling memories of Christmases past as a young child. We’re looking forward to celebrating the holidays with our children and now four grandchildren. Christmas was always magical for me, and I hope my grandchildren will feel the same as they grow up.

If you’re like me, you’re already making plans for 2019. I have two solo exhibits I’m excited about. One in February and the other in November. At least I know I’ll be busy at the beginning and end of 2019. I still have a few of my 2019 calendars left if you need a last minute gift idea. They’re really beautiful and practical. I’ll hand sign each one.

Thank you so much for being such wonderful fans, collectors and friends. Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season and all the best in the coming year!

Blessings from your artist friend, Mary

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
