Mother's Day Artwork - better than flowers

Looking for some truly truly special artwork for someone so very special in your life? (listen if it wasn't for her, you wouldn't be here reading this)
Flowers come and go, but art stays around a heck of a long time.
Please consider giving an original piece of art to mom for Mom's day.
Here's the link to my ETSY shop where you can choose from about a dozen options, prices ranging from $10 for greeting cards to $45/$81 for Mom specific works to $200 and up for Custom Artwork.
There's still time to place your orders before May 11th!
Enjoy! :)

Becca Fitzpatrick's "Crescendo" CoverReveal by Laurie Maves ART

It's hard to believe this project is already 4 years into the history books of Laurie Maves ART. I was truly honored that publishers Simon & Schuster asked me to participate in a cover reveal for Becca Fitzpatrick's book, "Crescendo." I hope you enjoy today's time lapse of street painting with chalk pastels at the Tivoli - on the campus of Metropolitan State University in downtown Denver, April 14, 2010. I love how you can watch the day progress by not only the artwork adveancement, but also by watching the shadows fall.

Denver's live painter, Laurie Maves ART mural for OmTime Yoga Studio

I miss seeing this mural everyday.

It was at my old yoga / painting studio.

I wonder if it's still around of if it became a paint - over.

all things must change, though, even walls.

New Etsy Page for Greeting Cards and Custom Orders

Hi Folks!
It's that time again, a time to start a new media/online shopping/wonderful way to pass a couple hours surfing the net of creative items PAGE.
That's right, I have joined (or rejoined) Etsy after a 5 year hiatus. I have found that the site gets a lot of traffic from many people who are not on the regular social media platforms, so I am hoping that my art will find it's way into the homes of bright and brilliant new collectors.
For now, you can purchase sets of digitally printed greeting cards of carious watercolors and paintings I have created in the past. Some are of Frida, some of Buddha, as well as poppies, daisies and a scene from lovely Venice, Italy.
I am also selling original artwork through that page, as well as taking custom orders for animal or landscape paintings. (I will always offer stylized portraits and other commissions as well, but thought to start with some examples of animals/landscapes and other reproduced paintings.)
Here's the link to the Custom Orders Page: Laurie Maves ARTsy CUSTOM ORDERS page on ETSY
and the link for the home page: ARTsy ETSY homage where you will see all the other fab fab items that are all for sale.
Thanks again for all your support, encouragement, and willingness to take part in the love for ART!

Sherry's Fight. We honor you, We miss you, We Love you.

A dear friend lost her battle with cancer last night, March 31, 2014.

I made this painting for her during her treatment in 2010 after she was first diagnosed.

She beat her cancer for awhile, then it came back last summer, June 2013.

And it was just too much for her body to overcome.

If i could make a million paintings to save someone, of course I would.

I know we all would.

Sometimes the master plan is greater than all of us.

I still believe in the power of prayer, and in the ultimate knowledge that our souls know when our bodies have had enough of this physical life.

Bless the ones that are left behind to go on without her here, even though she is forever in our hearts
