Giraffe Skin in Grey on a Vintage Side Table

This small vintage side table is a whole new direction for me.  The request was for something subtle and sophisticated.  I used the client’s fondness  for giraffes as my inspiration and suggested an animal skin motif in a neutral grey to match her decor.  The straw colored stripe is both an echo of the natural color of a giraffe  and of the color on an adjacent focus wall in the home.  Yes, there is a signature dragon fly on the back…

Fuchsia Pink Rose with Butterfly

This lush fuchsia colored Rose is a just barely opened blossom painted in sharp focus against a diffused green background.   The inspiration for this painting is a photo I took this past spring in the Rose Garden in Elizabeth Park, Hartford, CT.    The purple butterfly is an ‘enhanced’ Common Blue.  The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ but comes on strong!  It is available for sale at $80 including shipping.  Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
