The Smalls Collection
I’ve pulled together a selection of the small paintings, some of my favorites.
These paintings range in size from 4 x 6″ to 8 x 10″, and a few long ones, one of my favorite formats to work with since it emphasizes the strong horizontals of the flat country I love to paint.
A small painting makes the perfect gift for family and friends.
Happy Holidays! ~ Mary

Winter Swamp

Winter Swamp

Winter in the swamp is one of my favorite times of year, and it really doesn’t have that much to do with the lack of mosquitoes, although that’s a definite plus.

Marsh, Flood Tide // SOLD

High tide on a full moon after lots of rain means a marsh that is more water than grass. The bits of grass interrupt the seamless reflection of the sky in the water, providing just enough grounding to prevent total visual disorientation.
