Handmade and one of a kind

Every Mary Loos painting is handcrafted from start to finish. I prepare the surface, add texture, silver or gold leaf, acrylic paints, inks, or anything that is going to help create a unique art work that can stand on it’s own, literally. The substantial profile looks great hanging on a wall or placed on a shelf. Once the artwork is completed a gloss topcoat is added and left to cure. Once cured I sign each piece and add hardware so it’s ready to hang and bring a smile to your face. My little 6 x 6 inch original paintings capture and reflect the joyful energy I use to create each one. #original #art #paintings #handmade in #Canada

New little originals

I have fallen down the rabbit hole once again. I am totally smitten with this new media. I feel at home already. Delicate yet bold, these ink originals are finished off with Art Resin with an added UV protectant. Love Love Love.

Boom! Tulips!


New tulips emerged from an underpainting yesterday with a flurry of energy and excitement of the sun’s arrival. This 40 x 30 has all the joy captured in it. Boom! Spring!


Tickled Pink

I’m enjoying the new florals and abstracts so much I’m sure there are more to come. They are all fun and frolic to make and all the more sweet because of the journey it took to get to this point. I’ve been experimenting with resin techniques for many years. I’ve learned it all the only way I know how, by making mistakes. Lots of mistakes. Now I can add mixed media to the resin and work oils, foils, acrylics, ink and have some success along the way.





Warming things up

Well, the snow continues to fly here in our little part of the globe. When I close my eyes I see magenta, playful yellows and turquoise. I guess how I react to all of that peaceful white outside is to break out the paints and the brighter the better. Here are three gardens from my mind’s eye.
