Tuesday Voice: Posthumously speaking 1

Painted from an unknown scene in an art book (8" x 10")
Paintings from life

By Mary Alice Condley (1925-2007)

[Editor's Note: Three of the paintings shown today are in the collection of the artist's granddaughter Dianne Condley Kapigian, and one is in her great granddaughter Rayanne Kapigian's collection. We thank mother & daughter for permission to use them.
    Mary Alice Condley was the eldest sister of the editor.

Unique for "M. Condley" signature on the mailbox (16" x 20")
(in Rayanne's collection)

Dianne's absolute favorite: she and her grandmother on a walk;
"Grandma Mary and I took many walks together when I was young"
(8" x 10 ")

This one hung over the hutch in Mary's dining room;
it now hangs in Dianne's kitchen and brings back memories
of the delicious food her grandmother served (13" x 25")

  1. Mary Alice Condley died seven years ago, but her paintings, and the memories they inspire, live on.

  2. She was a very good painter. It is nice to have something of beauty to remember a person.
