This child’s rocker is painted with lots of happy doodles of stars, stripes, dots, hearts and a few little flowers in shades of blues, greens, salmon and white. I painted energetic frogs leaping at dragon flies on both the front and rear backrests. Lady bugs creep along the runners. This very sturdy rocking chair stands 25″ tall and is 15″ across the backrest. The seat is wicker. It is appropriate for a girl or boy. For Sale at $125 plus shipping and handling.
Rocks and more rocks, painted hyper realistically in liquid acrylics!!! I recently returned to one of my favorite subjects this summer (2017) when I painted a charming vintage table. There are at least a dozen heart shaped stones in the oval table top (30″ X 19 “). How many can you find? I’ll let you decide the total number as some are only hinted at! Of course there is a bug on one of the stones. The lower shelf is painted as a single slab of grey marble. The shelf is also painted on the underside so as to continue the Trompe L’oeil illusion. The legs remain their original dark brown stain but I added small grey diamonds to the graceful curves to visually connect the two painted surfaces. The table stands 29” tall and has a drawer tucked under the top tier. This piece is similar to a previously commissioned table named River Stones, however this one is available! The table is for sale for $450.
Morning Glories on a nice wood box! Five sides are painted with intense Blue Heaven Morning Glories on this nicely crafted wooden box. A fat bumble bee visits on the top and there is a little lady bug on a stem and a dragon fly underneath by my signature. Yes it opens and closes securely, almost secretly! Keep something special hidden inside. The box is 5″ tall and 4 1/2 ” squarish. For sale for $55 plus shipping and handling. Please contact me through this site if you are interested.
It’s that time of year again when I will be participating in the Women Artists Collective Annual Art Show and Sale taking place the weekend of November 19 and 20 at the WINDSOR ART CENTER, in Windsor, Connecticut. In addition I will also be participating in the Hartford Open Studio NEXT DOOR at the Windsor Train Station (see photo) which takes place the prior weekend of November 12 and 13 from 11-5 . Both events should be a great experience! The WAC Show and Sale will have work from over 30 of my fellow artists and is always a lot of fun. There will be eight of us, in a variety of mediums, at the Open Studio where in addition to pieces for sale, I will also have on display several of my works of art on loan just for this show. Seeing photos of art is just not the same as seeing the artwork in person! I hope you can make it to Windsor for either one, or both, of these shows. Please put me on your calendar, I look forward to seeing you there.
