"Sunlight & Fresh Air"


"Sunlight & Fresh Air" Tablescape - Mary Maki Rae -2019(c)
Acrylic on Watercolor Paper -14" x12" Mixed Media
******************************************
  Enjoyed this weekend working on some "Collaged" Art - Using my Hand-Painted "Arches" Watercolor Paper and a couple of Black&White Patterned Fabrics. Like the way compositions just seem to flow so easily with this technique when all the elements are so flexible and movable-!
For more Information See Here.




Finishing up  on another version of

Tambourine -Revisited


"Tambourine"  By Mary Maki Rae -2019(c)
(Tangerine Variation- One Only) 
**********************************
I've been experimenting with this Original Silk-Screened Serigraph Print (Limited Edition of 90/19) by Hand-Painting in more detailed variations - this one is the First- available so far - Just using a simple Tangerine Theme.

I really Enjoyed the effect of the Orange Tangerines against that "Cerulean Blue" - It seems to bring the Image more to life. . . . . I have so many more Ideas for this venture - so there will be hopefully more to come - on occasion.
If you may be interested in this Artwork - See more information Here-!

New Flower Designs



Flower Designs - By Mary Maki Rae 2019(c)
************************************
During these Dark and Windy Days of January - I've been working off and on in my small study room - on some New Flower Designs using Gouache paints.
I enjoy how this paint dries flat and  layers so well over each color.
Back to the easel soon when the Sun is shining -!

Fall Paintings



Mary Maki Rae - Acrylic on canvas - 2018(c)
****************************************
Working on Fall Paintings - Such as this much larger 30" x 30" Acrylic on Canvas of some "store-bought" flowers combined with Autumn leaves and Snowberries -
(parts of which are shown). 
Love the equation of the bright-colored flowers contrasted with the White.
