Voted as a "Fav15%" in the May 2015 Bold Brush Painting Competition
What we discover when we go inward is our poetic response to life.
Art connects us to our Source. It connects us with each other, with generations past,
and with those who will see our paintings long after we are gone.
When I paint, I truly feel the great relations among all things.
Every subject becomes a metaphor. I forget to breathe. I will never lose sight of what a joy and privilege it is to be a painter.
"Mary Pettis is a consumate artist of light and movement. Her work is superb and her observation of light, landscape, objects and people is among the very best today. She imbues her work with a poetic tone that is her own and whether it be in bright sunlight or soft moonlight, her light is true, honest and unmistakable. I love her work and I have awarded her several well-deserved awards over the years."
