Description Grandma's button box, from ancient memory of wonderful shapes and colors. Expressionistic painting in purples, blues, reds, and other child-pleasing colors. Printed on canvas at 'grande' size it will make quite a statement.
Betty Mackey, Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement Thanks for visiting my galleries! Color and nature are my themes. I love abstract art, but I also love the real world, especially the natural world of plants and animals.
I am an artist, photographer, and well-known garden writer. The abstract images are intended for the larger printing sizes where their colors glow and their intricate textures show to best advantage.

Imagekind does a precise job of printing on canvas and stretching the image on a frame. I've recently hung a 3 by 3 foot gallery-wrapped print of my image "Shades" and it is a wonderful abstract painting that makes the room. Prints can be made on art papers or canvas, and they can be plain, framed, or for canvas ones, stretched in either gallery wrap style or museum style.
Imagekind now offers art quality greeting cards. Buying a card is an inexpensive way to test an image you are thinking of printing and framing in a larger size. You can see how the color and design will work with your room. Also, the cards might be just the right thing for adding color and sparkle to a special occasion. My floral photographs are always welcome as cards or prints.
For years, my writing has been about helping people do things outdoors and in the garden. Seeing things is important too, and I hope my artwork and photos will bring a sense of beauty, peace, and nature to all who see them and live with them.
Just for fun I posted a video of my images on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhQXjVQfoFk
