A Small Taste of Robert Rae's Scupture - imaged above:
A myterious Harlequin Mask that puts me in mind of Venice. .

An Expressive - Classical Face - atop Carved Fans. . . .

A Sensuous - Stylistic - Mannequin. . . .

A timeless - enduring Moon Face . . . .

An elegant gold-colored Figure Sculpture. . . .

A flawless Fish - cast from the original with applied Antique Fish Hooks. . .

And a tastefull little Fish - same as the large Fish - only smaller.

Spring Bouquets & Butterflies

"Spring Butterfly Muse" A Delightful Garden Muse in a New Color Palette - Acrylic on Canvas - 15" x 15" - By Mary Maki Rae - 2011 (c)
"Tiger Moth Bouquet" - 12"x12" - Mary Maki Rae - 2011 (c)
This is one of my Paintings of Geraniums.  I love this lovely shade of very warm Fuchsia - with a Blue Cast.  Although I admire the Red ones - this particular color works for me.
To capture that special hue - I added just a touch of "fluorescent pink" (Oh my-!) to Medium Magenta - and it worked Great-!
I thought it nice to include with the One in full Bloom - a small one just starting out and some buds -  of course-!
I find the leaves quite attractive with their round - scalloped-shaped edges and soft velvet surface. 
Also - the veins of the leaves radiate out toward the edges from one central spot (here indicate with a white dot- that I thought created a little sparkle-!)
