For the Love of Bikes Box

Now for something a little different.  This wooden file box was another fun commission.  My assignment was simply bicycles.  Of course I wanted a variety of bikes! I put a sweet one with a basket of flowers on the top and a tandem bicycle on the front. On the sides I painted a high wheeled penny-farthing and a mid century bike.  The unicycle  on the back is in tribute to my two granddaughters who ride their unicycles with aplomb!  The mint green and cream background stripes unify the whole piece.

Zinnias in a Ball Jar

Bright Zinnias in an old blue glass Ball Jar sit on a table by a window.  I really had fun with this one; from the variety of styles and colors that Zinnias come in, to the glass jar, to the raised lettering and the crocheted doily underneath.  And of course a little honey bee has come by to check things out! I painted this commission on a 12″ X 9″ wood plaque.
