This small box was painted for a very active fellow! I had a lot of fun painting just some of his favorite activities: Tennis! Golf! skiing! biking! Ballroom dancing!
The request for this commission was for Camellias and Gardenias, two flowers I had never painted before. I had fun with the silver bowl, the bee and the Lady Bug as well. The wood plaque is 9″ X 7″.
This commission was painted as a gift for a young Mountain bike enthusiast. I used actual photos of him for the top of the wooden file box and for the speeding bike on the back face. Painting the motion in the speed shot was a fun new experience for me.
This commission was painted as a gift for a young gymnastics student. She’s the one in the pink and black outfit. I carefully chose moves from the four Olympic apparatus to fit the structure of the wooden file box.
