Mary Ellen Mabe says, “One of the most enriching things about travel for an artist is the wealth of inspiration that is brought home. My time in France gave me the feel of a small town in the French countryside. A recent trip to a very large ranch in the hills of Texas left me in awe of the vastness of that landscape. All of these memories are part of my work now,” including “Beach Dunes.”
