About mary

I'm a wife, a mom and a grammy, living in Northern California.  Hub and I are both retired and loving it. I enjoy watercolor painting and find time when ever I can to paint.

 

My original watercolor paintings have been recreated and turned into  GiclĂ©e prints by scanning them and then processing them in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.  They are then printed in-house, onto cold press finished watercolor paper using our Canon Pixma Pro printer.  Most designs are made up into 3 sizes; 8X10 inches, 5X7 inches, and a fold over card that measures 4.25X5.5 inches after the fold.

 

The final prints are signed by hand in pencil, scored if they are cards, matted in white if they are size 5X7inches, then sealed into plastic sleeves with a little writeup about us.  Finally, they are placed into the Easy shop, delivered to local stores to be stocked, or, very occasionally, they might go to an art show.

 

I love what I do.  It is such a pleasure to have the time in my life to paint.  I'm living a dream I've had since I was young.  I thank God for the desire and the ability to create beautiful things.  I am more at peace at this time of my life than I have ever been.  It is a joy to send a large share of my profits to International Justice Missions, my favorite charity.
