A Merry Muse

"A Merry Muse" - Acrylic on Arches Paper
9" x 12" By Mary Maki Rae - 2018(c)
The Bright Happy Colors make me Happy - and of course "the garden theme. Also like the variation of Lace for her hair - Inspired to do more . . . . 

A small retreat to my "mini studio/study room" where I keep my drawing table - to finish this piece where the light is a "little" better during these Winter days - and warmer too. . . .

Discovered this small painting of "Two Marionettes" having fun - and decided to add at the Top a string of Bunting Flags - which I thought completed this piece perfectly-! - must have been inspired by all those decorative flags I made this Christmas for the Tree. . . . funny how things fall into place sometimes -!

Just starting on another Painting on Arches Watercolor paper - 
found this drawing from the 1990's that I made for
a book marker - in a Laura Ashley Decor Book -
Love a bit of Nostalgia . . . . !
