Mary’s Art Still Resonates
Here in 2019, some 14 years since her death, we are still contacted by owners of Mary’s work, seeking to confirm the work is hers, and in all cases but one, it has been. This week an art dealer seeking provenance and validation contacted us to ask if this lovely painting was hers.
Mary’s Creative Legacy and Love Brighten Our World
Since we’ve sold our home up north and moved to Florida full-time, we’ve hung many of Mary’s paintings here and l be seeing them every day.
Why did Mary’s artistic style change?
Recently I was asked this question by an owner of her work. If you look at all the paintings in Mary’s “gallery” here, you’ll see many abstract paintings. In fact, her art only changed when she was much older and had moved to Maine from California and shared studio space with a more representational, impressionistic painter and near an old friend who was a very successful painter (Abbott Pattison, http://www.hpattison.com/abbottpattisonoilpaintings) and became more influenced.
Mary passed from this life on March 27, 2005. It's hard to believe it's been 11 years, because her amazing art remains with us to savor and help us remember her.
