The Shape of Things to Come


Mary Engelbreit

So much for my twice-weekly posting schedule.  This has to stop.

Here’s a preview of Gallery 2, which, as promised, is coming up.  This is an extremely rare piece.   It was designed by Mary Engelbreit, and, to my knowledge, is no longer available.  It’s one of the largest pieces that I own, measuring 20″ x 28″.  I love this canvas, mainly because it is chock-full of details:  every time you look at it, you see something new.  This is a cropped version of the larger piece.

I bought it because, sometimes, I know just how she feels!

  1. This piece is beautiful. I have seen other works by Engelbreit and all are wonderful. In my youth I remember having read several small books that included her art work which I suppose she put to canvas at some point. At least I think that may have been the progression. My “senior” brain doesn’t remember as clearly as it used to!
