Feature Artist: Dream On!

Mary, the artist behind Dream On!, is like me - an artist by heart who has been doing art all her life. You can see in the diversity of her paintings and watercolors that she likes to commit to paper all the beauty around her. She says about her style that she "value(s) the presence of a recognizable subject in (her) paintings. (She) love(s) it when the center of interest appears in the midst of background objects that aren’t so well-defined". She further states: "I want watercolor to look like watercolor, and I want my paintings to have a painterly look, not a photographic copy. Therefore I am an impressionist, because I don’t want to over-control the media". While I was looking at the variety in her shop, i could not stop clicking one painting after another because each and every one of them has such a unique subject matter and is executed in a different style. With all that to choose from, the hard part is to decide which on to take! You have to see them all.
