This cabin is an early dwelling that housed families and now sits next to a river on museum grounds. It is visited often, and even has it's own day each summer to celebrate the cabins dotted around a midwest state. The covered bridge behind it sits in the shade of the forested site. I love how it's nestled in the trees and it's garden welcomes you to come inside for a look. To the right where the distant trees light up is the other side of the river bank.
For over a decade Mary Hughes has been creating a variety of paintings depicting what she loves about life, and covering each subject thoroughly. Her works in oil on stretched canvas depict birds, dogs and other pets, wildlife, seacapes, realistic still life and once in a while, people. She has a passion for realism that is most often reflected in her paintings of glass, or the glint in a dog's eye. Having no formal art training aside from some wonderful high school instructors and her grandmother, Mary is primarily self taught. She sees every painting as a learning experience. Her work over the years has been a mix of inspiration, and her deep desire to constantly improve. Her paintings can be found in private collections in Israel, France, Denmark, England, Canada, Japan and the U.S.
