Mary Hubley’s Trees featured in the Richeson75 Small Works 2018 book.

Yay! I’m soooo honored to be included in this beautiful hardback book. It’s not often that an artist receives international recognition for their paintings. And I had two paintings featured in one book. Such a surprise!

The two trees are mine – the bottom of page 96 and the top of page 97. Both of them were done en plein air – out in the brilliant Florida sunshine during one of my weekly excursions painting with my regular plein air group.

Months later, I found a lovely little book-sized package when I returned home from my Tybee Island painting workshop a few days ago. Never too tired to gleefully rip open a nondescript brown cardboard package, I attacked the outer cover and found the lovely book. I first paged through the master paintings from some of the world’s best artists. I discovered my work on pages 96 & 97… Scream! … I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to have my work accepted at the same level as well-known artists whom I have admired for many years.

These two little paintings received meritorious awards in the Richeson75 International Small Works 2018 competition.

So, lesson learned? I guess I’ll keep painting smalls!

“Artists plan each brushstroke or pencil line with the greatest care to create these exquisite works of art. To the artists, bravo!” Director’s note from the Richeson75 International Small Works 2018 book
