Hello March

Birds are chirping, flowers are growing & beauty is in bloom.

Spring has sprung and we're here to help your spring season be full of hope, life and new beginnings.  It's such a natural time to paint flowers. Here are a just few of mine.  There is something sprouting for everyone. 

February is still a blur for me.  How 'bout you?  This month is starting off to be another busy one with preparation for upcoming exhibits and shows.  Spring is always a busy time for art shows in Florida.  (We try to stay indoors during the dog days of summer.)

I love helping people add art to their lives.  Did you know I offer a convenient layaway art plan?  Just send me a message if there's a piece you'd like me to hold for you.  I am very happy to do this.

February's "Steal of the Month" winner was Pamela Wilson. Thank you so much Pamela.  Restless Ranunculus will be on its way to you.  I'll select a new painting for March and send out another announcement in the next day or so.  A great, affordable way to start or add to your art collection.

Thanks as always for your support and encouragement.  I am so blessed to be able to do what I love.  I hope you'll continue to enjoy my art and share it with your friends.  

Many blessings,  Mary

The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
And sings.
— Joyce Kilmer, Spring





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.

Gobble, gobble ~ Mary

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.

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.

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.
