About the Art

The Basics

  • The art is the original work of Mary Thrasher. Each picture is hand-painted in watercolor and matted in a hand-cut beveled mat. 
  • Care should be taken in the placement of the art. Over time the watercolor could fade if placed in direct sunlight. Shades of blue are especially fragile.
  • All art work can be purchased framed or unframed. Contemporary, straight forward metal frames (black or white), with an acrylic front (as opposed to glass) are lightweight and suitable for any decor. They are wired and ready to hang. Children's art are framed in this manner as well. Be sure, however, to hang the picture far above the child's sleeping area and little hands.  The art is in standard sizes if you want to purchase your own frame. Unframed art comes with a foam core backing and a clear polypropylene envelope. 
  • The art can be directly sent to your gift recipient with an enclosure card. Provide the name and address of the recipient in the "Special Instructions" section of the "Secure Checkout" along with your message. If you are ordering more than one picture be sure to identify which picture goes with which address!
  • Airline Art: Much of the art is based on American Airlines. However I am willing to do "special orders" for other airline groups (stewardess/flight attendant alumni) for fund raisers etc. 

Mat Color Choices

  • Please note that scanning equipment, computer screens (yours and mine), etc. can alter the color of the mats for the computer. For example, all the white mats displayed are actually the same color, but appear differently. Purists can use the color code below for Crescent mat board.
  • Navy Blue=Marine Blue #1082
  • Light Blue=French Blue #972
  • White=Antique White #3293
  • Black=Smooth Black #921
  • Pink=Madagascar Pink #1078
  • Mat colors that are available are identified for each picture in the "Online Ordering" section.
