Happy New Year!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are excited about the possibilities that 2019 offers. I have hit the ground running and wanted to share just a few things that are coming up this year. My first solo exhibit of 2019 will open on February 8, 2019 at the Highlands Museum of the Arts (MoTA) in lovely Sebring, Florida. If you’re going to be in the area through the end of March, please stop by MoTA to see my work.

Just a few things that are in the works already:

  1. I’ve applied for an artist grant from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County for professional development. Wish me luck!

  2. I’ve secured my first solo exhibit at TECO Public Art Gallery for November-December 2019.

  3. Booked my casita in Santa Fe, NM to spend three months painting this summer.

  4. Continuing my search for additional gallery representation.

I wish you a year of health, joy, and beauty through your enjoyment of the arts that you've invited into your world. 2018 was a year of growth with the addition of exciting exhibitions, and you - my collectors and art supporters who make all of this possible.

May 2019 continue to brighten your lives with color.

Your artist friend, Mary

Gratitude, Grace & Giving

Gratitude, Grace & Giving

Dear friends,

I have started my gratitude list for Thanksgiving week, something I do every year to reflect on the blessings of the year. And, I want you to know I count you among my many blessings. I am thankful for your kindness. I am thankful for the sharing of my art with friends and family. I am thankful for my collectors whose purchases allow me to continue painting. I am thankful for your daily company on social media. I would not be where I am today without God’s grace and your support.

May this Thanksgiving week find you counting the many blessings of this season of love, giving and sharing.

If you’ll be doing a little “giving” this holiday season, might I recommend a visit to my website, Fine Art Amercia shop or my VIDA fashion shop? I’m sure you’ll find that something special for yourself or someone on your gift list. From artwork to wearable art and home decor, I have you covered.

A Dream Written Down

A Dream Written Down

My studio

My studio

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.

Blessings from your artist, Mary
