Just finished and soon to be on Ebay, Poppies in Blue Vase. This is the first of what I hope to be many floral paintings that I do this summer. I have started a rooster for mom. I will check back later. I hope you are enjoying the art.
Graduation! The baby is graduating and the festivities have begun. Grandma is here from Texas and we will be partying for a few weeks. This June will be a family time before Courtney goes off to college and the nest will be empty (except for weiner Stella). I will be painting, but Grandma has a few things she would like painted. I will return to Ebay with new paintings I hope you all will love. Thanks for checking in.... Torrie
My name is Mary Victoria Smiley, but I have been "Torrie" my entire life and now sign and certify my work by just the one name.
I am orginially from West Texas, now living and painting in the foothills of North Carolina.
I am primarily a self-taught artist who paints using oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastel. I have become known for my different renditions of pears, ranging from realism to colorful impressionism.
I am a Juried Artist and my award winning Martini Series is a fan favorite.
Thank you for stopping by and viewing my work.
