Mary Deal : Featured Artist
Mary Deal is a native of Walnut Grove in California's Sacramento River Delta. She is an oil painter and photographer now offering her work for sale which originally began as a hobby.
Not only is she an extremely talented artist, but she is also a writer. You can visit her here to read all about Mary Deal. Write Any Genre
I freely admit to having book marked her writing site for future reference!!!
"She is also an award-winning author with six published suspense/thrillers, a collection of short stories and flash fiction, and a reference book for writers. Mary is a Pushcart Prize nominee, a columnist with The Garden Island newspaper, and also Associate and Contributing Editor of Mississippi Crow magazine."
Beautiful composition and color.
I'm quite sure that almost everyone loves the Plumeria flowers. These Aztex Gold Plumeria's are very true to their name in color; gorgeous and golden!
It's quite clear that Mary loves flowers, or I love the flowers in Mary's portfolio!
Slightly on the abstract side, but Mary shows that she looks everywhere around her for inspiration. She stops and smells the roses - something all of us need to be reminded to do. I like this tile for not only the detail and tones, but for the uniqueness of seeing an image where you know the artist has looked down and reproduced what she saw.
Mouth watering delights! Can you feel the tang, taste the sweetness and juicy.... I'll stop there, you get the idea. Strawberries are linked to romance, sensual treats and simply magnificent deserts, but they also make for beautiful artwork.
Beautiful luscious reds!
I shall end this feature Mary Deal was so gracious to grant me permission to do on a passionate note.
The Passion Fruit Flower. Mary Deal has an entire portfolio dedicated to tropical blooms and I freely admit to having enjoyed my feast for the eyes in her portfolio.
Please visit Mary's Art and perhaps even treat yourself to an Easter Gift Print!
