Folk Art Mary - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

Email update sent April 11, 2012

Farmers' Market: Spring is here, and the way I can tell is I'm back working at my booth (#3) at the Ithaca Farmers Market.  Last Saturday was my first of the 2012 season. This year I will not be doing Sundays. I've got to rest my hands, as my thumbs complained last year from carving two long days at the market. So whether you're coming to visit me from afar or you live locally, you can see me on Saturdays at the market (video by Robyn Wishna) 9 AM to 3 PM, or make an appointment to come see artwork at my home studio.

I'm doing some spring cleaning, selling off older pieces at sale prices, so if you come by my booth please ask about this.

Here's a smattering of new artwork, most of these carved last summer at the market and painted this winter in my home studio.
