Small and Beautiful

There's no point in beating around the bush.....this blog is blatantly about me trying to persuade you, my reader, that what you would most like to put on your Christmas Wish List - or what you think would be a truly unique and desirable gift for someone near and dear to you - would be a piece of my work.

You would be in good company, I might add. My paintings have often been given as gifts - as anniversary presents, as wedding gifts, for birthdays - and one couple honoured me by buying one as a memento of their honeymoon. Indeed, I have even been commissioned to paint portraits as Christmas gifts for loved ones. But please, don't even think about asking me to do that now for this year's Christmas. It is way too near for me to be able to complete one for you in time.

Having said that, however, I do have plenty of paintings, drawings and lithographs that could be your ideal gift. Obviously, budgets vary hugely, and I am well aware that Christmas is a very expensive season of the year, so may I introduce you, today, some of my smaller and less pricey pieces, and please bear with me if I send you a few more emails over the next couple of weeks with more offerings.

The works I am choosing to share with you are not only small and budget-friendly, they are also small and easily shippable....some not even framed yet, so they would be very suitable for sending in the mail., and I can arrange to organise the shipping for you too, though obviously I will have to add the cost of postage and packaging to the price of the artwork. Payment can be done through Paypal.

Oh, and one more thing.......the days quickly and easily turn to weeks and, before you know it, Christmas will be upon us, so if this is something that you think you would like to do, please make sure you let me know soon, before it is too late for your gift to arrive in time.

If what you see in this email is not the kind of thing you think would be suitable, do browse through my portfolio - - to see what else I can offer you. When you see something that you like, just click on the image and you will be taken to a page where you will find all the details you need - size, price, medium and some background information about each piece. You will find a wide variety of work and a wide range of prices and sizes.

So, here are some suggestions for today, ranging in price from €30 to €225. I also have a presence on Fine Art America, where you can buy art prints of my work, and other small items, very reasonably. Here is the link:

Black and white charcoal drawing of a male figure in lotus position, leaning forwards with his hands outstretched and resting on the ground in front of him.
Prayer - Charcoal drawing on paper, unframed 36 x 33 cm. €120. I have several life-drawings available, but they are not on my website yet..

A gnarled tree, with shattered branches rendered in chalk pastel in yellow ochre, yellows, browns, purple and green.
'I've seen some history....'chalk pastel study of an old olive tree that I have been making a long series of work about. This little drawing measures 30 x 20 cm and comes in a white passe-partout 5 cm wide. €100.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and, I hope, explore my website to see what else I have there.

Until the next time, All the very best, Mary-Lynne
