A soothing still life of spring's first peonies displayed in a clear vase. The blue teacup offers gentle balance to the pink and red flowers, with shades of blue subtly reflected on the petals. "The blue cup adds a touch of whimsy but keeps the focus on the flowers, which is always the focal point," says artist Mary Beth Gaiarin.

Mary Beth Gaiarin shares her time between creating art in her Virginia studio and winemaking on her family’s estate in Italy. In Virginia, she works out of two studios - one is an artist community in a repurposed WWII munitions factory and the other is the top floor of her 1700s era home. Mary Beth’s impressionist still life paintings are tightly focused on the scene with a strategic use of color and a radiant light. She adds textures with her palette knife, including shiny porcelain, soft scarves and grainy cakes, and her brushwork is reminiscent of John Singer Sargent. Mary Beth recalls a particularly significant moment in her training, when she ignored the elaborately set model table and instead explains, “I focused on the cut half of one orange. I discovered a kaleidoscope of colors, shades, tones and tints, visible because of the intricacies of light and shadow. I’ve been enchanted by this discovery ever since.” Mary Beth’s classical compositions are influenced by her time spent looking at art in Europe, and explore the concepts of leisure and a nostalgia for time spent with friends and her children who are now grown.
