This is from a photo taken on a sailboat. The colors from all the different water depths, some shallow with sand or grass, really created these stripes. The greens and blues were of every shade. I think I will try a larger painting making the transitions a bit softer.
I am so excited that I actually finished my first painting here in Key West. I was very happy I was able to find the time and actually get it done. As time went on, it was getting daunting to think about setting everything up, but now I am looking forward to doing another soon. I am very inspired by my surroundings.
Welcome, my name is Mary Anne Cary. I presently live in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, a small town just outside of Portland that sits abutting the frigid North Atlantic. A former graphic artist, I have been interested in art throughout my life and I am excited to finally step into the world of blogging as a way of broadening my horizons. My history as an artist has gone through many phases, I have experimented with many mediums and most recently have concentrated on oils and pastels. I particularly enjoy painting landscapes and still-life, but find it fascinating to work abstractly as well. I have been inspired by all the daily painters and look forward to the growth each one expresses from working daily. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about my artwork, pricing or if you are interested in purchasing anything you see. Additionally, you may visit my website to see more oil and pastels pieces.
