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.

You can follow my blog (this means you will get an e-mail notifying you when I post a new painting or collage) 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.

ONGOING BENEFIT SALE!

MARSHALL AGAIN     SECOND ANNUAL ONGOING BENEFIT SALE     Grapevine Valley/collage

 I have chosen Doctors Without Borders as the (ongoing) beneficiary of my sale. This organization has been in the forefront of providing excellent medical care for Ebola patients in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, as well as continually providing medical care to people living in some of the most embattled and dangerous countries in the world. As some of you know, I have a soft spot in my heart for Liberia, where I was in the Peace Corps.

Here’s how this sale works, very simple:  You buy a collage from the Benefit Sale ($150), $50 goes to Doctors Without Borders, and $100 goes to me.  You will make out 2 checks, one to Doctors Without Borders and one to me. 

Here’s the link to Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres) for information: http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/)  This organization has a very high rating from Charity Navigator (http://www.charitynavigator.org)

You can see the collages by clicking on “COLLAGES” at the top of this page. If you’re interested in buying a piece of art and at the same time contributing to a very good cause (actually, 2 very good causes, Doctors Without Borders and me!), take a look at the collages posted here.  My contact information is marymaupin43@gmail.com or 828-689-3379.  And thanks ever so much!
