"A contemporary realist painter, she captures, with lifelike precision, the stillness of the Plum Island marshes, the petals of a bright yellow iris in the South End, apple blossoms clinging to a brick wall at the old gardens at Maudslay State Park and the Common Pasture, its vista unchanged by centuries."

"Putting things in perspective," by Ulrika G. Gerth, The Newburyport Current

New Digital Artwork

Pig and Apple Tree © Mary Baker

Mary has been working on a new body of work that combines digital art and prismacolor, a waxed based colored pencil. The images are printed with pigment prints on acid free, watercolor paper, and then Mary goes over the image with prismacolor to create a vibrant color and even more detail. This is a work/project in progress. Mary started experimenting with this new digital endeavor in December of 2012.

The process and progress of the new digital-prismacolor art work can be found both on her Mary Baker Art Facebook Page, as well as on her Art Blog. The digital image above, "Pig and Apple Tree" is 9" x 12" and is not finished, it is a DRAFT.
