Pillow Talk

"Green Goddess" Painting 18"x18" & Pillow

**************************************
Moms Pillow-with SHELLS-6.3x5-Two
A Pillow I made recently for my Mom - using the Perennials Fabric mixed with an Embroidered Silk Fabric. I thought it would look perfect with her Biege Cotton Ticking Sofa. Here it is with the Shells during her visit last week-a great time was had by all-!
 Moms Pillow- Green Godess-BACK-6.5x5
For the Back View - I used an Envelope Closing made of Biege Linen with a Tie made from the Striped Perennials Fabric used on the Front.(I thought the Pillow looked good reversed to this side too-)

Summer Bouquet

Fantasy Bouquet in Tea Cup-6.3x5.7
"Summer Flowers in A Fantasy Tea Cup"
18x21 - Acrylic By Mary Maki Rae 2013(c)
**************************************
A new Painting - Enjoy so much these Colors with the White Porcelain - so Perfect for a Summer Beach Cottage-!
The addition of the Figure with Flowers and the Landscape Scene brings in Freshness and a sence of place.
(the painting is not this fuzzy looking - I took the image on my deck during a very warm sunny day - so it must have been that!)

Summer & Shells


Two Chairs-Wall Shell-Blue Glasses-7x5

Med. Wall shell-Sml. Full shell-6.3x4
****************************************
To help stay cool during this 90 degree heat wave here in the Northwest - it seems right to work with the Shells - Probably because I associate them with Water - the Sea - and the Beach . . . .
It's fun to have them up in the Summer to hold Fresh Flowers - they look so great and natural on the deck with lots of Sunshine-!
