I'm Off to the Land of Enchantment

Gosh what an fun, exciting month this has been friends. My trip to Santa Fe, NM is just around the corner. I leave on May 4 for my two month painting residency. I will paint in the city and region that inspires my art. I've also been invited to do live painting on Canyon Road, the premiere art destination in Santa Fe. I can't tell you what a dream this is and how excited I will be to share my experience with you. 

I've never been gone for more than two weeks, so planning for two months away is a bit of a challenge for me. Just figuring out which art supplies and tools to pack and ship is enough to keep me up at night. Thankfully there's a wonderful art supply store in town for anything I forget.

I have managed to do some painting this month, exhibit in shows and sell some art. A very successful month in my book. Here are a few of the new paintings that I've just added to my website. The companion piece for Fire and Ice sold before the paint was even dry.

New to my online shop are a series of framed originals (painting are all 8 x 8 inches) and would look beautiful individually or as a set. 

And, last but not least, new designs are available in my VIDA collection. If you haven't had an opportunity to see my fashion collection, I invite you to pop over to check out the new Winter Whispers silky soft modal scarf and matching sheer wrap. Just click the photo below to visit my VIDA shop.

Thank you so much for being fans, patrons and collectors of my art. Your support means the world to me.

Blessings from your artist, Mary

A Dream Written Down

A Dream Written Down

In just 32 short days I'll be arriving in Santa Fe, NM to paint the dream I've had for the past year. What began as a "wouldn't it be nice" little dream last summer is now becoming reality. All that remains is figuring out the logistics for shipping my art supplies, confirming appointments with galleries and boarding the plane. I am excited and nervous both at the same time.

March was a busy month creating new small artwork for April's First Friday in the Heights event at Cleanse Apothecary in Tampa. I haven't even had time to add all the new work to my website. I'll also have three artworks at Scarfone-Hartley Gallery at the University of Tampa for Las Damas de Artes annual Sunday in the Arts event this weekend. 

In between I try to find time to design new items for my VIDA fashion collection. There are some lovely new items for Spring, especially the modal silk scarves. I'm just in love with these scarves. You can wear them as a wrap or tie them in multiple ways. This is just one of my new designs along with the painting that inspired the fashion.

I'm working on new paintings, and hope to get them finished and ready for my website before I head off to Santa Fe for May and June. I treasure the time I get to actually paint in my studio versus the business side of art. Working on finding more creative time is a new goal.

Speaking of being more creative, I took off last week to focus on my garden. I've neglected it so badly the past year. It's still very much a work in progress, but I am very happy I was able to bring some whimsy back by replanting my fairy gardens like this one.

I hope Spring finds your neck of the woods soon friends. Here in sunny Florida it's in full swing, blooms, pollen and birds.

Thank you so much for being fans, patrons and collectors of my art. Your support means the world to me.
