I painted three types of Orchids on this metal watering can for an Orchid lover. Orchids can present an artist with tough details and all three varieties here had their own unique challenges! I loved it!! There also is a Malachite butterfly, a small Honey bee and four ladybugs on this piece.
This small file box is the second in a four part series of sports figures. It was commissioned to honor a special swim instructor who made a huge difference in the life of the student. I had a lot of fun painting the water!! I could not resist adding some water droplets inside the box. My signature insect is a ladybug on the bottom of the box (not shown). Are you interested in commissioning a painted box, starting at $85 plus shipping? Please contact me through this site.
A Grandmother’s gifts to her grandchildren! Two favorite ‘Stuffies’, a warthog and a donkey, will now always be preserved for these two children. This subject of this commission was another first for me, but since I love painting texture it was right up my alley!! They are painted on wooden plaques 9″ X 12″ each.
And the two little turtles are painted on small stones to fit in little hands! I actually enjoyed painting the turtle undersides more than the tops!!
This wooden file box with red and yellow roses is the third in a series of commissioned boxes. I painted the box to look like it was made of stone. The insect is my version of a Japanese beetle.
