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. . . .
