"Summer Cosmos"

"Summer Cosmos" Acrylic - 9"x12" Mary Maki Rae 2018(c)
I've Been working on some Acrylic paintings on Watercolor Paper in a more "simplified style". This one of Summer Cosmos - I've painted in a modern-style  Pitcher of Blue-Violet and Lavender.
It seems to me that any color composition - if it contains Red - Yellow - and Blue - always works-!

Happy Mother's Day

"Portrait of a Lady" By Mary Maki Rae -2018(c)
Acrylic on Canvas - 30"x34"
I've always enjoyed that warm "Italian Light Palette" I used in this Painting -  I remember thinking of my Mom that Summer I painted it - miss her so much and always making that "Mother's Day" card-! (She saved them all . . . . .)

"Summer Bouquet of Roses & Peruvian Lillies"
Acrylic on Canvas 14"x16" Mary Maki Rae (c)2018
 Another Painting in the same Palette as the one above - from another Summer: Roses - Peruvian Lillies - and Daisies in a Vase with a "Romanesque" design.


"A Happy Elephant" 9"x12" - Gouache on Watercolor Paper
By Mary Maki Rae - 2018(c)
I've been working on some new designs using Gouache - a water paint that dries flat - it's quite enjoyable. Always liked the design possibilities of elephants and I wanted to paint a "Happy" one -!
