Past Summers #1

"Island Adventures" By Mary Maki Rae 2015(c)
Talking about Adventures . . . The painting above was inspired by an absolutely "Dream Commission" that most Sculptors or Painters would aspire to produce:
Six Full-sized Wooden Soldiers to be crafted and sculpted by Robert and designed and hand-painted by Mary-!

The Light in the Studio was perfect that Summer in the San Juan Islands as I gazed upon the brightly painted and perfectly turned parts for the soldiers.
They were neatly placed on shelves - waiting to be assembled into their full creation.
I was inspired to paint one of the pieces as a background for the painting - and for the inside - "A Whimsical Dream" -! For more See: Here 
Buy a Print-!   Shine some light on the ARTS-! Live a Little -! 
And Have a Happy Weekend-!!

Summer 2

"Summer Morning" Acrylic - Mary Maki Rae 2015(c)
The one thing I enjoy about this 90 degree Heat Wave we're going through - are the fresh clear mornings - as in the painting above.
I would like to fill these pristine pastel vessals with images and words of Summer Memories - past - present - and dreams of future possibilities.
