Hydrangea Inspiration

In the midst of the Corvid-10 social distancing I had trouble getting my ‘engines’ started on a new painting. Then I came across a photo I had taken last summer and my inspiration came roaring back. I painted this pale blue Hydrangea  just as it was about to burst open to full bloom. I love the delicateness  I was able to achieve with the life size petals.   I painted the visiting bee with a softer focus to capture his motion in flight.  The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″  and is edged in shades of antique gold.  It is available for sale at $95.   Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.

Autumn Tilt Top Table

I transformed this vintage tilt top table with an  Autumn scene painted in fluid acrylics.  Some leaves are painted right up close and well detailed.  One large tree and lots of slender ones line the stream in the background.  A yellow swallowtail butterfly glides right by!  The table stands 37″ with the top in the upright position and 26″ with the top laid flat.  The oval top is 20 1/2″ X 14 1/2″.  It is for sale for $325 plus shipping and handling.  Contact me through this site if you are interested.

Hibiscus at Mt Fuji Plaque

This painting of Japanese Hibiscus was inspired by photos I took at the base of Mt Fuji. More delicate than the familiar American Hibiscus, it took a lot of research and intuition for me to identify it once I was back home after my trip. A Dragonfly is my signature insect for this piece. The small oval plaque is only 8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″ with a black frame reminiscent of traditional Japanese lacquer. It is ready for hanging with a hook on the back. It is for sale at $80 including shipping and handling in the United States. If you are interested in purchasing this plaque or custom ordering a similar piece with a different motif, please contact me through this site.
