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.

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).
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…
|This striking side table began life as a solid wood vintage Early American style nightstand. I painted it a deep navy blue and created faux marble surfaces in shades of grey on both the top and lower shelves. This is a trompe l’oeil piece of art work, where everything looks real enough to pick up! On the upper surface I depicted items collected on a visit to Japan; There is a sophisticate navy colored fan, and a pair of chopsticks encased in a fabric sheath, secured by a braided knot. I added three glass marbles through which you can see light shinning. I folded a crane and a swallow from paper purchased in Tokyo to use as models to paint the two Origami birds on the lower shelf. This unique table is currently for sale for $450 plus shipping. The top is 14″ X 16″ and it stands 27″ tall.Please contact me through this site if you are interested in this table or perhaps a custom painted item.|
