Welcome to my blog!  I’m Mary Maupin, a painter who works in oil and/or acrylic on canvas.  I’m inspired by the landscape around me and the colors in my mind, as you can see from my paintings. I will be posting images of my paintings here. For more information about my paintings or to commission a piece, see “Contact & Pricing Info.” above.

You can follow my blog (this means you will get an e-mail notifying you when I post a new painting) by entering your e-mail address in the column on the right.  You will then get an e-mail asking you to confirm that you do want to follow my blog.  Thank you.

I hope you enjoy this blog!  I welcome your comments.

As of summer, 2013, in addition to my paintings I’m posting images of my COLLAGES and OTHER FUN PROJECTS in the pages above with those names.

Farm in the Smoky Mountains


Farm in the Smokys

This collage, 8″ x 10″, is a donation

to an auction/benefit for John Ager,

a (very good!) candidate for the

N.C. House of Representatives. 

The collage is done on a print of

one of my large acrylic-on-canvas

paintings.      sold

Fulani Girls

Mary Maupin:

A departure from posting only my own work– photo of Fulani women (Nigerian, in this case). Having lived in Liberia, my work is so influenced by colors and patterns of this tropical region.

Laurel River

The Laurel River runs through Madison County, North Carolina.

This winter is going to tough on a lot of people.  Unemployment in Madison County, where I live, is 8.4%.  Extended unemployment benefits in North Carolina have been eliminated.  Our local Department of Social Services has run out of winter fuel assistance money.  And now food stamps which many poverty-stricken families rely on have been reduced by our State Legislature.

With this in mind, I’ve decided to have a benefit sale.  This sale will benefit 3 entities:  a local extremely well-run charity in Madison County called Neighbors-in-Need, you the buyer, and me the seller :).  Here’s the deal:  I have several paintings that I’ll be selling for 2/3 of their original price.   You’ll get 1/3 off, I’ll get 1/3, and I’ll donate 1/3 to Neighbors-in-Need.  Confusing?  Here’s an example: if a painting is $1200, you will buy the painting from me for $800, I’ll keep $400, and I’ll give Neighbors-in Need $400. You can see the sale paintings by clicking on “BENEFIT SALE” at the top of this page. (The prices listed ARE the sale prices, already at least 1/3 off the original price.)

If you’re interested in buying a painting and at the same time contributing to a very good cause (actually, 2 very good causes, Neighbors-in-Need and me!) take a look at the benefit paintings posted here.  My contact information is marymaupin43@gmail.com or 828-689-3379.  And thanks ever so much!
