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

Happy Holidays from Mary Mirabal Art

Happy Holidays from Mary Mirabal Art

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 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 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.

Blessings from your artist friend, Mary

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.
