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.

Forty Nine Shades of Grey Stones Pedestal Table

Rock, stones and more rocks, are painted hyper realistically in liquid acrylics on a charming vintage pedestal table. There are well over 49 stones painted in many shades of greys and other colors on the round table top (24″ diameter). The table (originally dark brown) is now pale grey.  Its legs wear their original brass ‘shoes’ so I painted faux brass on the carved rings on the pedestal. Look hard and you will find my signature bug painted among the stones! The table stands 27″ tall and is for sale for $650 plus shipping and handling (based on location, cost to determined prior to purchase).

Giraffe Skin in Grey on a Vintage Side Table

This small vintage side table is a whole new direction for me.  The request was for something subtle and sophisticated.  I used the client’s fondness  for giraffes as my inspiration and suggested an animal skin motif in a neutral grey to match her decor.  The straw colored stripe is both an echo of the natural color of a giraffe  and of the color on an adjacent focus wall in the home.  Yes, there is a signature dragon fly on the back…

Pansy Chair with Butterfly

Pansies are so wonderfully varied and intense!  I had to restrain my self from choosing too many when painting this sturdy vintage chair.  I painted over the original black paint in purples and blues before embellishing the seat and the back rest with blossoms featuring orange and yellow.    My signature insects are on the backrest; a bee on the front and a distinctive butterfly on the reverse. This chair is available for sale for $325 plus shipping and handling.  Contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
