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 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.
This step stool was a commission for a little girl named Lucy, It was so much fun to paint. Fish are so colorful! All the fish I painted are based on real sea life, except for the Mermaid (of course!). I included a wide variety of fish such as a Clown fish, a Tiger fish, gold fish and an Octopus. I also painted some Jelly fish, Angel fish, Sea Anemones, Starfish, a Sea horse and a Sea Turtle.
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!
