BLOG: http://www.devinepaintings.blogspot.com


I have painted since I was a senior in high school and won "Best of Show" for a small seascape oil painting in my first art exhibit. I have not really entered many shows since then, but am humbled that my Dad, a Lutheran minister, put me through college to get an art degree- although he was not too thrilled I wanted to be an artist. He knew - correctly, I guess - that is would be a hard way to find work. I took many years of figure drawing and painting; but after graduation had to find jobs that would pay. Some were so uninspiring and yucky they were comical. I am finally painting for a living and am so happy to be able to share my work with you.

Devine Paintings is a shop of impressionist and slightly realistic, sometimes small, but always edgy works of art. I have painted hundreds of canvas paintings and works on paper for individuals, high-end hotels, public spaces, restaurants and homes over the last 15 years.

Abstracts, landscapes, portraits, small paintings and color studies can be found here! Happy to do layaway or split payments if you want : )

I have been able to work and create art in many capacities including Graphic Designer,
Published Poster Artist, Freelance Artist and Illustrator and - my favorite by far - inner city High School Art Teacher-where I met a true ART teacher - Mr. D- who taught me all the things I never learned in college as he was a Chicago Art Institute Alum and the Mentor I had prayed for all my life! I am loving the chance to share my paintings with you!

I love art in all of its forms, I know that painting ABSTRACTS is very
freeing and improves my REPRESENTATIONAL and PORTRAIT work.




My favorite and most inspiring artists are:

JOHN SINGER SARGENT- unreal and sigh-inducing portrait artist

VINCENT VAN GOGH-the epitome of an artist

ED DODT- Masterful art teacher, drawing master, Chicago Art Institute alum who taught me what I should have learned while earning a BFA in commercial art-but never did. Important things like COLOR THEORY-facial structure-perspective drawing - Painting through Observation.

ROMARE BEARDEN --Collage and Assemblage Master, color genius.

RICHARD DIEBENKORN - the Abstract Expressionist who was classically trained in drawing and painting BEFORE venturing into abstracts. You can really SEE the abstract painters who-with practice and instruction-learned to draw and paint with AUTHORITY and SKILL before abstracting their subject- there is no comparison.

For those customers that keep coming back, and really all of you that look and comment - thank you so much for enjoying my work- it makes all the difference.

I LOVE color and mixing it up!


SAMPLE RECENT FEEDBACK FROM BUYERS:

"Received the chair painting today. I bought it for my husband and he loved it! And he's pretty picky. I will continue to watch your work. Thank you!" -K.L. July 2013

"Cannot say enough wonderful things about M. Devine or the painting!!! Thank you so so much!!!!!" -A.E.

Nervous about buying art online? I will just tell you that I am not a talented
photographer; people often say they like the paintings better "In person"

Bored yet?
