Bright orange Tiger Lilies are painted in sharp focus against a clear blue sky! I based this latest painting on a photo I took on the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts over ten years ago. Notice the last image which shows the flowers before I added their spots. I almost stopped painting there, but I am glad I continued. Yes there is a bug. Can you find it? The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ but delivers a great punch! It is available for sale at $75.

This is Avis. She is resting on a dining room chair, completely focused on her owner. I painted her portrait on a stone which is approximately 8″ X 5″ oval.
Springtime brings beautiful Irises in a wide range of colors and styles. This small plaque (9″ X 7″) depicts a fairly low to the ground purple and white variety that I fell in love with at Elizabeth Park in Hartford last year. This time the visiting insect is a honey bee. I would love to paint something like this for you if you want as this one is already in the hands of a happy owner.
Pansies are so wonderfully varied and intense! I had to restrain my self from choosing too many when painting this sturdy vintage chair. I painted over the original black paint in purples and blues before embellishing the seat and the back rest with blossoms featuring orange and yellow. My signature insects are on the backrest; a bee on the front and a distinctive butterfly on the reverse. This chair is available for sale for $325 plus shipping and handling.
