This step stool was designed to last well beyond Risa’s baby years. It was a pleasure to paint Irises, Tulips, Lilies, Roses, Rose of Sharon, Cosmos, Purple Cone Flower and Poppies! The navy blue background made everything pop! I painted three bugs, can you find them all? The stool came unassembled which made it easier to paint and photograph.
This wooden box (8″X 6″ X3″) was a commission for a Margarita lover, especially of the Watermelon variety. I really enjoy painting fruit!
This Hogwart’s treasure chest was painted to hold handmade crocheted Harry Potter figurines. It was a lovely combined effort between myself and another artist! I painted faux finishes all around with “leather” straps and brass rivets, edgings and protective corners. I tried to make the inside look like old trunks used to! It is about 12 “X 7″X4 “.
“Sunflower Burst is a 10” wide wood plaque with a live edge. I love flowers that are less than perfect with droopy petals and various stages of growth. My painted blossoms do not look like they come from a flower catalogue! Of course there is a bee here too! This plaque recently sold at an exhibit that was a fundraiser for Ukraine.
