Zinnias in a Ball Jar

Bright Zinnias in an old blue glass Ball Jar sit on a table by a window.  I really had fun with this one; from the variety of styles and colors that Zinnias come in, to the glass jar, to the raised lettering and the crocheted doily underneath.  And of course a little honey bee has come by to check things out! I painted this commission on a 12″ X 9″ wood plaque.

Morning by the River Tray

I sometimes pass this spot on the Farmington River on my daily morning walk.  I love living so close to this undisturbed area.  I painted my view from the shore on this small wooden tray which is 20″ X 8″,  handle to handle, and 15″ X 7″ on the interior. Since my signature bug would be impractical I added the turtles which live a little ways up river.   It is sealed with polyurethane.   Available for sale for $125 plus shipping.
