Folk Art Mary - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

Email update sent September 10, 2012

 

Coming right up, find me at the Bedminster Land Conservancy Traditional Artisan Show,  September 15-16, 2012. I've been working up a storm all summer getting ready for the Bedminster show. I do hope those of you within driving distance might come.

Winter is the time when I work on commissioned or special order pieces. Now or soon is the time to be in touch if you are interested in talking about a commissioned piece of art. Since last fall I've done a number of commissions or work to order on a number of themes - two small cat pieces, a sailing icon, a picture of a beloved family cottage on Seneca lake, a snow/woodcutter scene, and a picture inspired by a trip to Belize.

Ithaca folks, the Ithaca Farmers Market parking lot is more manageable in the fall, please come check out my booth (#3) and consider getting a piece of artwork as a present for yourself or someone else.

My art will be used as a cover image on Edward Hower's latest novel, Slick. The book won't be available for purchase until Spring, 2013.

Below are some recently completed pieces that I am quite happy with. I'll have them all at the Bedminster show. Speak up if you want me to hold one of them for you.
