Daddy's Home, graphite sketch...Today's big event is that "Daddy is home!" My kids have been counting down to this day all week. Just as my dad did for my sister and I when he travelled, my husband always brings our kids a "prize." This week he was in rural Alabama, not a place very conducive to buying souvenirs, but he nonetheless came home with some very interesting treasures! Cue the knitted Spiderman finger puppet made in Ecuador. It makes me laugh (it's so odd!), and it made our son very excited. So here's a fuzzy little Spidey: a celebration of homecoming, family and the funny things in life!
(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.
