Birch Trees



"Birch Trees and a Kestral" Acrylic - Mary Maki Rae - 2017(c)
***********************************************
I've been painting a lovely stand of Silver Birch Trees - that I enjoy observing across a near-by field.  About this time of the Year their leaves turn into the most glorious shade of Gold that I love. (It's best seen from here - after all of the Maple Tree leaves have fallen.)
Among the branches I've painted a fine-feathered Kestral - that seems to me most appropriate and delightful-!

Autumn's Coming Soon


"Bouquet in Black Enamel Pitcher" - 16"x16" Mary Maki Rae -2017(c)
*************************************************
One of my Favorite Summer into Fall Paintings - I always enjoy painting this enamel pitcher - plain white - black & white - royal blue - or all black as in this painting where it sets off the colors of the flowers beautifully. . . .
NOTE: For more info on this Painting See: HERE



A nice earthy palette to use for painting all those - soon 
to be appearing Fall Leaves

Blue Bouquet




"Blue Romance" Acrylic 14" x14" Mary Maki Rae (c)2017
*******************************************
I started painting this Image - inspired by an Arrangement of some Beautiful Hydrangeas - right before the "Solar Eclipse Happening". So after watching that experience - it seemed appropriate to paint the Moon and stars in that little window that quite often appears in many of my floral paintings.
       

I felt so cool and refreshing painting the Blues and 
 Lavenders after a string of paintings in a Bright Palette.


Really Enjoy the Soft -Romantic-like feeling of this Painting
