Tablescape with Blue Vase


"Tablescape with Blue Vase"- Acrylic on Canvas
17" x 20" By Mary Maki Rae - 2018 (c)
****************************************
Working on more Summer paintings - again with a "softer edge".
Enjoy the kind of "misty feeling" of the lightly layered backgrounds - then adding the "more defined" objects - flowers and birds for contrast-!
Also enjoy the new little "fish tile" that I added in last-! (It's actually a lovely blue & white pattern - but I thought just painted White - created the perfect balance in the painting-!) 
We're experiencing a 80 - 90 degree "Heat Wave" here in the Northwest - this week - which we're not acclimated to usually -however the Mornings are cool and comfortable to work in the Studio.

****************************************
Painted this Canvas - Summers ago - still enjoy it-! It has a little of that   "elusive - misty feeling" that seems to come with the warmth of a July Summer-!

Contemplating the Cosmos


"Contemplating the Cosmos" -Mary Maki Rae 2018(c)
*******************************************
I've been working on more "Summer Paintings" in a New Cooler Palette with a "soft edge". Really enjoy the contrast of the Blues with the Golds - accented with the deep - rich Magenta.
Inspired by the Cosmos that are finally in bloom - after such a cool Spring - and a lovely Blue Star-like Flower
