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.
In early spring I gathered Violets, Grape Hyacinth and a few Vinca blossoms and placed them in a little blue glass creamer on a glassy surface. I painted them on an 8″ wooden plate, slightly larger than life, with their reflection. My signature bug is painted on the back of the plate with an additional flower. This piece is currently for sale for $85 plus shipping. Please contact me thru this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
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.
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.
