Realist landscape painter of the Californian desert.
I met Mary-Austin Klein at the Sullivan Goss show “American Details” where I first saw her amazing paintings of places like Mojave, Death Valley, and Palm Springs, where I love to vacation. I recognized those mountains and that light right away before I even looked at the painting titles. We chatted and I invited her on the show.
In this interview we talk about her time at Otis, her work outside painting, her falling in love with the desert, her technique and her routines.
And finally, here’s the prop paper as it appeared in that movie:
Caption reads: “Lovely Mary picking the best of the crop for her friends. Mary also bakes the best pumpkin pies in our community.” (Note it’s the “Premiere Issue”).
