My paintings are mostly done on stretched canvas or linen. The depth is at least 1.5” deep. I have used clear glazed linen for my surface, which gives a more natural feeling. Some of my canvases have many color glazes that have been sanded, glazed, and sanded again to give a smooth surface. All depending on the subject matter of course.
I have always drawn, even as a small child. Art was the subject I most wanted to study. I have a BA in Fine Art which has allowed me to paint and grow with each painting. Frankly I don't know what I would do with myself if I didn't go to my studio every day that's possible and work.
My name is Mary l Parkes. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. What inspires me are the objects in nature. Grasses, leaves, colorful vegetables. The fabulous forms that the ocean makes on the sand when the tide comes and goes are awesome! These wondermus things can have a gleeful, dancing feeling. The viewer may often see frogs lurking, strawberries taking off like rocketships and ribbons streaming. The effervescent colors reflect my joy of life.
