Pale Rose With Bee Plaque

This oval plaque is small but dramatic.  The pale rose is is just opening, revealing hints of pink and yellow.  There is a bee hovering just below the  leaves.  The wooden plaque is painted in fluid acrylics, is 6″  X  4″ and is ready for hanging with a hook on the back.  It is for sale at $65 including shipping and handling within the US. If you are interested in purchasing this plaque or custom ordering a similar piece with a different motif, please contact me through this site.

I am pleased to announce that my work will be in a Gallery show called “Women Artists: Collective Experience” from September 5 – 22, 2019.  There will be six artists with some wonderful and varied work to enjoy.

I would be delighted if you can attend the Opening Reception on September 5 from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.

Pansy Platter Pair

Pansies are fun to paint; I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again!! For this custom project the client wanted Pansies painted on her two large metal platters which were bordered with a wooden rim (15″ diameter).  I covered over their original motif with a grayish blue background color.  And then I just had fun!  Of course in addition to painting a variety of floral patterns and color variations, I put in buds and seed pods and wilted blooms along with a bee in each one.
