This was a fun commission! I was given the assignment of “lemons on a box” and I loved doing it! I painted the exterior of a new, unfinished, file box in a deep forest green which makes the lemons pop! I painted whole and cut lemons, slices and wedges, curls of rind, seeds and lemon tree blossoms. And of course a yellow bee for my signature bug!
I sometimes pass this spot on the Farmington River on my daily morning walk. I love living so close to this undisturbed area. I painted my view from the shore on this small wooden tray which is 20″ X 8″, handle to handle, and 15″ X 7″ on the interior. Since my signature bug would be impractical I added the turtles which live a little ways up river. It is sealed with polyurethane. Available for sale for $125 plus shipping.
The Clematis bloomed in profusion ‘that’ summer and I immortalize the explosion of color by painting it on an old metal TV tray. This tray is the third in a series of three. Each tray portrays a house of import to the client who commissioned the series.
A wonderful trip to New Orleans inspired this painting of a well known home on Royal Street. Painted on an old TV tray, it is the second in a series of three. Each tray portrays a house of import to the client who commissioned the series.
