Ballroom Box

This 6″ diameter wooden box was painted for a ballroom enthusiast.  I painted a color portrait of the couple on the top  and four black and grey silhouettes on the sides. Since the signature couple for this commission  are usually dressed in black dance attire, I used the chandeliers and the background colors of a favorite  ballroom locale to make the box glow.  Doing the ladies in charcoal grey helps to define the two figures.

 

Under the Sea Step Stool

This step stool was a commission for a little girl named Lucy,  It was so much fun to paint.  Fish are so colorful! All the fish I painted are based on real sea life, except for the Mermaid (of course!).  I included a wide variety of fish such as a Clown fish, a Tiger fish, gold fish and an Octopus.   I also painted some Jelly fish, Angel fish,  Sea Anemones, Starfish, a  Sea horse and a Sea Turtle.
