HELLO

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 and collages here. For more information about my work or to commission a piece, see “Contact & Pricing Info.” above.

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

DEPARTURE FROM MY USUAL POSTS–but necessary!

If you need to unfollow me because of this post, so be it.  This will be the only non-art entry I will post on my blog, and I’m doing so because I simply cannot sit by quietly and let whatever happens happen.  You shouldn’t either.  Add: for some reason, WordPress has closed comments on this post.  Feel free to repost this post!
