This lush fuchsia colored Rose is a just barely opened blossom painted in sharp focus against a diffused green background. The inspiration for this painting is a photo I took this past spring in the Rose Garden in Elizabeth Park, Hartford, CT. The purple butterfly is an ‘enhanced’ Common Blue. The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ but comes on strong! It is available for sale at $80 including shipping. Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
I painted this Magnolia based on a photo I took in Seattle. The blossom is just a little past perfection which makes it vulnerable and real. The butterfly in flight comes from a photograph I took at the Magic Wings, a butterfly conservatory in Massachusetts. The wooden plaque is 8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″ and is for sale at $80 including shipping .
My first Tiger Lily Plaque was so well received, I happily revisited the concept. Here I painted two bright orange Tiger Lilies in sharp focus against a clear blue sky! A honey bee is flying nearby. The painting is based on photos I took on the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts over ten years ago. This oval plaque is edged in metallic green and is approximately 11″ X 8″. It delivers a great punch! This one has been sold but I can paint you a similar one for $75. If you are interested in purchasing something like this please contact me through this site.
I painted three large dragons on the bedroom walls of a ten year old boy who loves these mythical creatures. His mother asked him to find his favorite dragons from books and from the internet, however she did not tell him why she wanted them. I based my painting on the images he had chosen. He returned from summer camp to find I had painted a mural on two of his walls while he was away. Wow! He was so excited with his surprise when he came home!! A real fun project for me!
