This little metal pot has a frog on each side. From one side you see his back and on the other you see his belly. It can hold a 4.5″ potted plant.
I painted this vintage University-style chair in the school colors of Roger Williams University. The commissioned piece was a tribute to a well loved supervisor who was retiring. I included all sorts of insider jokes and messages, even under the seat. The center Time Out sign was painted in two versions. Which do you like better?
This is a Gnat Catcher bird sitting in a springtime Crab Apple tree. The painting is dedicated to my late cousin Heidi whose wonderful bird photo was my inspiration. It is 8″ X 10″ on wood. It sold before it was even completed!
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.
