I am so happy to announce that I am back at teaching Art full time! I switched over to teach 4th grade classroom for 7 years, as the program was reduced. Now, it is full time and the position opened up for me to step back in. I am SO happy to be back at it!
Bonnie Bigs wins the free 11 x 14 inch print of my new Christmas portrait for being the first one to comment on this post! Congratulations
Book cover illustration! The book I painted the cover for is now on sale on Amazon and on lulu.com. The book is titled "Travelers...The Destined Wasteland" by Miles Carter, cover illustration by Mary Clare.
My sisters and I in the gallery where two of my pieces were accepted into their show. The beach scene in between us was done in pastels.
For Christmas, I was on an ornament making kick and made this one with a photograph of my mom. I thought it was comical, but also a way of expressing how I wish Santa Claus could deliver her back to me as a gift for Christmas. She was not delivered, but she is in my heart and in my mind at all times, so I guess that will have to do.
Working on this year's Santa portrait. I should be done with it soon. Santa has arrived down the chimney to find an adorable toddler waiting for his arrival.
I thought I would share a photo of something really cool my sister and I saw at the Ghoultide Gatherings in Michigan. It was a quaint show in an old time village type setting with artists selling their Halloween themed sculptures. Isn't this unique? We loved them.
This is me with the finished work of "When Time Stands Still" of all my vintage toys in a still life. I did the entire piece in Prismacolor pencils. Loved every minute of working on this one!
