“Here’s  my new  paintings. They are called “Sons” and “Daughters” because my images could be brothers, sisters, partners or friends, but always, we are sons and daughters.” –Marga Stanely


And, as always, a bit of whimsy by Marga:

“Look to the Moon” by Marga Stanley.

Fun Fact: This year, the full moons of October, November and December all take place when the moon is at its closest point of approach in its orbit around Earth — a so-called supermoon. The supermoon, November’s full Beaver Moon, peaked its full supermoon phase on Monday, Nov. 14.



With love from MARGA, “Catching the Wind”


“My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it all over again, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt.


With each coat of paint, whether it’s watercolors, gouache, acrylics and oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with…. for instance, the main images on my mini whimsy collection, were painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife).

I love the movement of things… whether it’s the hair or feather on a bird’s head or the drooping of a flower’s leaf…I want to make my painting live and breathe.”–  Big Hugs, Marga Stanley

A delightful, soft-spoken speaker, Marga Stanley lectured about her latest works of art, sometimes painted with a toothpick  (please forgive us as we cannot keep this fact silent),  during the opening reception of Quiet and Clarity on December 3rd.
