Abstract Child’s Rocker Revisited

 

 

This child’s rocker is based on a chair I did a number of years ago. I painted both in abstract geometric designs with bold colors; purple, teal, cream, black and gold. I even managed to include a snail and a butterfly. The style works well for either a boy or a girl.  In this instance I customized the design for a particular little girl.  Can you discern her name???

Stones and Feathers on a Bench

This charcoal-black single-seater bench is painted in Trompe L’oeil style with a collection of stones, slate, mica and natural crystal scattered on top.   The bowl and the turtle are carved from stone as well.  For a little something organic I painted two feathers and an autumn leaf.  Of course there is a little lady bug, can you find it?  If you are interested in having me paint something similar to this piece please send me an email or leave a comment.

Water Lily Pond Bench

This vintage all wood bench is painted with a view of a Water Lily pond with unusual red, pink and yellow pads.  A large fuchsia flower jumps off the surface with intense realism.  I love the way the light hits the water at the top of the scene and how you can look into the murkiness of foliage below the water.  Of course there is a frog!!  I captured these botanical beauties at the Minneapolis Zoo a few years ago.  I painted the graceful legs of the bench in four shades of green that darken as they descend, with gold and copper colored highlights.    It is currently available for sale at $175 plus shipping and handling.  The seat  is 20 1/2″ X 14″ and  is 16″ off the floor.  The handles add an additional 3″.  Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing this table.
