Thank you for your kind thoughts and intentions, but this is an award free blog.
As a New Zealander who grew up literally On a beach and who has now washed up in the landlocked midwest of America, I truly enjoyed these mobile and exciting renditions of the sea. Wonderful work. Wish they were on my walls, I would not feel so homesick.. c
Hi Cecilia, thank you so much for such a beautiful note and compliment. It means a lot to think that a piece of my work would touch someone so deeply ~ thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. From the photographs I’ve seen of New Zealand, it truly is a place of magnificent views, I can understand why you would miss it so.
This is a wonderful gallery of superb paintings. I enjoyed each and every one of them. Best wishes 🙂
Thank you Andrew for your beautiful comment – I really appreciate that you took the time to visit my galleries.
My pleasure Mary. Thank you for all your support and interest; it’s much appreciated 🙂
I have not painted with watercolors Andrew and I find your lessons from the Masters really intriguing. Maybe someday – for now I’m still finding my way with the OPs. Thank you so much ~ I love your discipline.
It’s breathtaking gallery! I’m impressed… Congratulations and plaudits for you, Mary!
with love, Ana

Glowing skies and living seas – simply beautiful. I cannot paint or draw with any competence, but love to see such craftsmanship and skill put to such an elegant and absorbing purpose.
Thank you so much Pat for your beautiful comment, really appreciate hearing from you and thank you for stopping by.
All of these are absolutely incredible. I adore them. I am a writer, and on my blog I like to accompany artwork by WordPress bloggers. I would really love to feature your work there, with accreditation that it is your work of course! Let me know 🙂
Hi Nina, thank you for your lovely and generous comment – it’s really appreciated! Unfortunately I’ve found many images of my work all over the internet some w/credit some without, but none asked, so I’ve turned most shares like facebook and pinterest off and have turned off the ability to reblog. You are a fabulous writer, but at this point I’d rather not have my work shared on your blog, just because once it’s posted on your blog I have no control over where it goes from there. I hope it makes sense and you’ll understand I’ve been burnt really bad.
Hi Mary, no of course, I completely understand! That is sad to hear, however great to know that users can no longer do that. Thank you for letting me know. I can still admire your lovely works…Have a wonderful week, Nina
Thank you Nina for your nice comment – it’s been a real fight for me. But enough of that – I’m looking forward to seeing your writings. Have a wonderful week too!
Your brilliant “nature-energy” and sensitivity to your environment is quite evident in each of your lovely paintings, Mary!
Thank you very much for your generous comment – means a lot and is really appreciated. I love painting the ocean, has it’s own song of sorts.
All of those seascapes are just beautiful!
Thank you so much Jill for your wonderful compliment – really appreciated!
