  • Painting Bridges, Alleys, and Avenues of My Favorite Cities

    I was born and raised in the suburbs, with rural farmland and city centers nearby so I have an unbiased appreciation for both.

  • Art Isn’t Just About Pretty People

    New Year by Mary Whyte, watercolor painting of a milliner from Atlanta, GA; 2009, 22 1/2 x 29. Sometimes I get so sick of people calling a painting or drawing 'art' because it has a good-looking person in it. Who wants to hang out with Barbie or Ken all the time? Not me. I'm inspired by the...
