Fresh Bunch

10 x 12 Oil on raymar canvas board

This is an oil I just posted on my "Oil Blog", but thought I would post it here too, as an experiment. The problem with having 2 blogs, and having one come later, is the #2 (oil) doesn't get as much attention. I still feel I need 2, since my pastel and oils seem to be so different. So, let me know if anyone has a better idea, or is mixing them up a good thing? I tend to think it is better to keep styles separate.


  1. This is such a departure for you Mary Anne...I really like this style too!
    I get only one blog in my reader because you only have a followers list for your pastel blog...maybe that could be a solution, then I would get to see all your new work no matter which blog you post on.

  2. Just love your choice of subject matter Mary Anne - and your radishes are great!
    Perhaps you could combine both mediums but have separate pages / tabs at the top? Check out Julie's -
    Intended to add tabs to mine, but haven't had time since I'm working on a solo show. Good luck!

  3. I know that I mentioned this before, but I found having two blogs to be too much. As you and Dana said, one blog will get more attention than the other. You also mentioned keeping styles may find that the more you paint, the more your styles will be similar no matter what medium you use. For me personally, I would like to visit one blog to find out what a person has been creating. Its really about you and your work. On the other hand, if you were using one blog to sell work more than the other, such as Laura Daniel's small works blog, that makes sense as well. Love these radishes. Also, really enjoyed your pastel artists. Which one did you choose for the contest?

  4. I mix it all up on one blog (enough of a challenge for me!)

    Your radishes are beautiful, and I love the shadows, too!

  5. I like the idea of a tab for each blog.

    I'm growing radishes this year and LOVE this painting!

  6. Hi Mary Anne:
    I like having one blog, and I think people enjoy seeing different styles and/or mediums for a change of pace on one blog. That way none of us miss seeing any of your art.
    Your radishes are gorgeous... love the little root shadows.
