New Pattern


A New Pattern - Mary Maki Rae - 2016(c)
****************************************
I have been Experimenting with some new Patterns using Simple Shapes of Large Medium and Small Sizes in a Pattern. 
They could be Leaves - Birds - or maybe Fish-?



The Color Palette: Chrome Yellow - Cerealian Blue 
Blue Violet and Magenta on White


Here are the Shapes with Strings - and different painted
colored patterns of Stripes - Could be someone 
Stringing some Fancy Beads-?


Now I've added more Colors to the Background -
It's beginning to look like Fish swimming in a stream.



Yes - I'v decided it's FISH-!
So I added some Tails and different colored Heads
on a few.
 Enjoy the Colors in this Pattern-!

4th of July Floral



Painting By Mary Maki Rae - Soldier By Robert Rae (c)2016
*********************************************


"4th of July Floral" Acrylic on Canvas- By Mary Maki Rae(c)2016
************************************************
Started this Painting for some Independence Day Inspiration.
Love the balance of Red - White -& Blue together -! (Now why could that be-?) - but what ever shades of these colors I use - it seems to "work"-!
Still needs a little more detail for balance at the bottom -however . . . .
Quite a lot of rainy weather of late - We need more Sunshine-!

Hope you're Enjoying Summer-!

A New Summer


"Summer Beginning" Acrylic- Mary Maki Rae -2016(c)
******************************************
Just finishing a new painting - a familiar theme and colors I know - I really needed something cool and calm to offset so much chaos lately.
(A great and needed use for Art - Yes-?)
Now how to finish the background - where to be - the garden - the deck or the Sea. . . . maybe just another shade of blue-?
