Celebrate, Ink Sketch...Today is my tenth wedding anniversary, so for my daily sketch I was drawn to a big bowl of corks sitting in our kitchen, reminders of celebrations past. Some corks are from New Year's, some from anniversaries, some from dinners with friends. A few are from those nights when the day had been hard, when money was tight, or stresses were high; when my husband and I would thumb our nose at hard times and celebrate life with some cheap champagne. We have much to celebrate, in good times and in bad. Dave Matthews' "Two Step" plays in my mind, "Celebrate we will, Because life is short but sweet for certain..."
(Click on picture to link to website) Welcome to my Art blog! My name is Mary Liz Ingram and I am a Birmingham, Alabama native who found a passion for pastels in the summer of 2008. While working with other mediums such as watercolor, graphite and acrylic, my work focuses on pastel landscapes and whatever else strikes a chord. I also paint pastel portraits of people and pets on commission. I am a self-taught artist who grew up with a love for art and have been creating art for the public for over 10 years. I hope you enjoy this site, where I post my art and my thoughts to share a little bit about why I do what I do.
