Do You Love Instagram?

This is what my account looks like the computer screen.

Follow me on Instagram.

I love Instagram. The content is beautifully visual and of high-quality. I'm following people from all over the world. This allows me access into new lifestyles, ways of life, and new worlds.

I upload a new image everyday, mostly my artwork, such as my acrylic landscape paintings along with my mixed-media abstract paintings.

Sometimes, I will upload a beautiful nature scene that awes me. Or, I might do like many people do and upload a photo of my beloved pet, Sir Kitty. I focus on my art and what inspires me in the moment.

The Format

The image format is square. The disadvantage of that format for showcasing art is that for artwork that is not square, people don't see the entire image.

I played around with options for showing my entire image in photoshop but found the results unsatisfactory, see the 3rd image below. The white space between the images create unwanted space. The square format looks great when images are side by side. It gives a uniform look to the exhibit. Hopefully folks will visit my website to see the full images.

Your Account

Do you have an Instagram account? Let me know what it is so I can follow you. I recommend opening an account if you don't. No, I receive no money for recommending this to you.

Some of my daily uploads of art and Sir Kitty.

Uploads of art, Sir Kitty, and what inspires me in the moment.

My Account

In case you don't know, it is a mobile app, but you can also go to on your computer. You can look me up by "mary fine art" in the Explore function.

See you on Instagram!
