Winter Garden

"Ariel's Winter/Spring Garden" 
 Designs By Mary Maki Rae 2015(c)
Still working on "Ariel's Winter-Spring Garden" - A Collection of Images with a Light Whimsical Touch. I'm adapting them to use on Pillows right now - but I have many more ideas that I plan to sew with this fabric.
The "Happy Holidays" will be coming around again soon . . I know. . .

Winter Thoughts

"Winter Dreams" Acrylic - By Mary Maki Rae 2015(c)

Wishing Each and All 
A Happy, Thankful, and Peaceful
Thanksgiving Day-!

So Sad about what has happened recently in Paris - We all so admire France's Great Heritage and Culture that has provided so many Inspirations to the world. 
Our Heartfelt Sympathy, Hope, and Peace to the Survivor's.

Fall Leaves & Peruvian Lillies

"Fall Leaves and Peruvian Lillies" - Mary Maki Rae 2015(c)
In this painting I'm enjoying the soft color transition from Fall into the Winter Season. 
The background puts me in mind of a warm tweedy sweater - The tall whimsical vase that inspired the long curved flow of the leaf branch could be an ultimate Late' coffee cup - and I'm quite charmed by the two mellow blues.
I need to add another small branch of Golden leaves and maybe some Maple Seed pods or such.
The "Imported" or Greenhouse-grown Peruvian Lillies are so fun to paint - it's nice that they so gracefully last forever-!
