Marcia Gayle Snee Rattle Heads

Thursday, August 27, 2015

A small whimsical purchase at RiverView Gallery in Havre de Grace. Local Artist Marcia Gayle Snee had just brought in a number of her "Rattle Heads" – small and much larger. We've got a couple of Marcia Gayle's pieces, but Nan saw these and thought the little blue one looked like me pouting. So we got the pair. They're in the kitchen window right above the sink.

 And yes, they do rattle if you pick them up and shake them. Marcia Gayle Rattle Heads are ceramic painted with acrylic/pastel and then polished. Each one is different – and they all rattle. I would have opted for one of the larger heads but there's that resemblance that Nan sees…. These are about 4 inches tall – the larger ones about double that.

See Marcia Gayle Snee "Rattle Heads" along with her wonderful encaustic (wax based) paintings at RiverView Gallery in Havre de Grace.

COMING Sept 20…  Artist Dave DeRan Open House. Always worth attending – and extremely difficult to avoid wanting/needing to acquire some great art. Hover over thumbnail for full size invitation… and see my Other People's Art Index for DeRan blog postings here.
