Mixed Media Artist

Black and Speckled Chickens in the Garden

This is a 12″x16″ mixed media painting on wood. This painting has 1.5″ deep sides that are painted red and is SOLD. Reproductions are available upon request. maria@mariapacewynters.com or comment below.

UPDATE: Well these girls are SOLD and will be going away to there forever home in the future. They’re on LAY away (pun intended) … did you know I do layaway? Yes, I do! It’s a great way to get what you want even if you don’t have all the money to fork over right now. I love helping people get something they love, it makes me happy

Snow White And Rose Red (sneak peek)

OK so this is a little edited  sneak peek of the upcoming lesson I am doing online with Ever After. If you would like to take part in this lesson, follow this link. It focuses on the fairy tale Snow White and Rose Red but I also answer many question on style development.  The main lesson shows the entire painting of this piece from beginning to end with me doing a voice over explaining  what I am doing and why.  I am still a little shaky about speaking to a camera and getting a little tongue tied in sections but bear with me, I hope to get better. I’d love it if you’d like the video and even subscribe to my channel on You Tube. Thanks for your support!

Dream Circle in 30 seconds

I have created a You Tube channel that I hope to feature more 30 second paintings, lesson and workshop information and give aways. I hope you will subscribe.

I think this whole world of video might be kind of fun… maybe…  ha, ha, ha … we’ll see! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this 30 second painting, which, by the way, is available in my Etsy shop.

My online class is now up and is getting a great reception. I am so pleased that people are getting so much out of it and am excited to do more in the future.
