Blue Watering Bucket


"Blue Watering Bucket" -20"x 19" Mary Maki Rae 2015 (c)
*********************************************
A Summer bouquet of garden flowers - mostly Hydrangeas with one vibrant Sunflower.  I've arranged them in one of my most often used gray watering buckets. I've painted it a Brilliant Blue - which I find most complementry to all of the colorful flowers. (Now available as a print for more see here.)

Daffodil Garden Hat


"Daffodil Garden Hat" Acrylic - Mary Maki Rae 2015 (c)
********************************************
Working on a "new" Garden Muse in a very bold new color composition.
Imagine Red, Lush Lavender, Chrome Yellow, Magenta, and two Garden Greens (yellow green & teal green) all together. . . .
I liked the way her dark hair brought all the other colors into focus. . . .

A cool Spring day indoors warmed by a Pitcher of bright pink Tulips - multi-colored Primroses and some vibrant Oranges arranged on a pedestal dish.
Spring always seems to bring a certain longing for a new journey. . . .

********************************
I've been concentrating on some "Art Marketing" - hope you will take a look at the  pieces shown above. All of the Originals were painted with Acrylics on Arches Watercolor Paper - except the Bouquet in a Teacup on Blue Gingham which is on Canvas.
Spring and Pastel Colors are in the air - but I really Enjoy these Images with a little pop of black for contrast and definition.

I also Enjoy Collecting and Designing Black & White Objects such as the Mask -Three-Way Mirror and The vintage 18th Century Gentleman in the Gold Frame in the first Image (He has a matching 18th Century Lady-not shown.)
I'll be posting more soon. . . .
