I proudly showed the work of Mary Ann Wakeley in my Magazine Street gallery here in New Orleans, including some huge and fabulous works. This is a mixed media painting on thick Bristol Vellum paper that shows all the panache she is known for, combining flat areas of pastel with dashes of bright oil, passages of rusty iron oxide and quirky, Cy Twombly-ish marks. These are stunning framed in a simple museum frame.
